Holiday Hidden Images at Disney's Hollywood Studios

You probably know about the seasonal Hidden Mickeys scattered throughout the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights along the Streets of America each Holiday season. Disney usually adds a few new Hidden Mickeys every year, and, thankfully, many of our favorite ones return. On San Francisco Street, the Dalmatian with the classic Mickey spot on its right hip is back this year. (Thanks to Sarah Del Grande).

I look forward to my annual search for the Hidden Cat. This year, it's up a tree! Look for it next to the City Hall building near the entrance to Lights, Motors, Action Extreme Stunt Show.

In recent years, Disney also hides a red razorback hog (in honor of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks in Jennings Osborne's home state) somewhere along the Osborne Lights. I found it in front of City Hall, not far from the Hidden Cat.

Close to Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano, I stopped and said hello to Lightning McQueen and Mater at their Meet and Greet area. Most of the time, Mater has a wing nut that resembles Mickey ears on his engine air cleaner. As I'd hoped, it was there. (Thanks to Brian).

Speaking of Mama Melrose's, Vickie and I had a fabulous dinner there before admiring the Osborne Lights. My Minestrone Soup and Chicken Cacciatore were outstanding! Just before dinner, right outside Pizza Planet, I spotted Santa about to deliver goodies to someone on an upper floor.

Each Holiday Season, it's great fun to look for Hidden Images in the fabulous Osborne Lights!

2011 Osborne Lights, and a few Hidden Mickeys

Vickie and I visited Disney's Hollywood Studios to check out "The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights." I stopped by a Hidden Mickey in a painted window at the entrance to the Streets of America, not far from the Writer's Stop. A classic Mickey sand trap is in the leftmost window as you face the New York backdrop.

We moved to the beat of "Mulch, Sweat and Shears," who were rocking at the New York end of the Streets of America, just before the Osborne Lights came to life.

At dusk, we waited with other excited fans for the Osborne Lights to brighten up the Streets of America.

The music started and the lights came on!

Colorful images appeared in windows of a building along the Streets of America, toward the New York end of the street.

We always look for the lighted cat, which changes locations each year. A Cast Member told me that they place the cat high or low on alternating years. This year, it was high on a roof edge, above the alley where the basketball goal Hidden Mickeys are located.

The Osborne Lights are a wonderful annual holiday tradition at Walt Disney World!
