Ah, Disney. You giveth, and you taketh away. For 20-years, folks (not including myself, regrettably) have enjoyed the splendor and amusement that is the Osborne Family Lights every holiday season. The would come from all over, like they usually do, and stare in awe at the beauty of the transformed Hollywood Studios as it was magically lit. Thankfully, enough people snapped photos of this event so that those of us who couldn’t attend could still bask in its glory – through a computer screen.
When Disney announced that this would be the last year that the Osborne Family Lights would be up, an “unexpected” thing happened. I don’t buy that it was really unexpected, as this article from the Theme Park Tourist implies. But, I will agree, judging by the comments and record-breaking numbers that are apparently happening down there in Orlando, that Disney may be feeling overwhelmed.
But mainly I am letting you all know that if you are planning to see the lights, you should definitely read the article for some helpful information – especially regarding transportation.
Have any of you ever been? Are any of you planning on venturing down this year, or already have? Let me know!
