We made a special trip to Disney, just to see the Osborne Lights for the final time. I’m not sure how I feel about it. On one hand, I’m excited for Star Wars and Toy Story… On the other hand, another Disney
classic tradition bites the dust. If they ever attempt anything like it again (there are rumors), I hope they execute it better. It’s always been too crowded, to really enjoy it. I think they need to double or triple the area, make it more open, and provide tons of seating. Either that, or make it like a ride, where guests can slowly ride a tram through the area. Anyway…
Before heading over to the park, we took some pictures at the resort. I love the Boardwalk, and at Christmas-time, it’s even better!
We took the Friendship boats to the park. It was easy, peasy. If we weren’t staying at the resort, the parking would have been a nightmare. It seems that the entire state of Florida, and beyond, have been coming out to say “Good-bye.” Disney had guests park at EPCOT, and then take the bus over to The Studios. Oh, Lord Jesus, no thank-you. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
It was a lousy 80 degrees and sunny! Living in Florida at Christmas, stinks! I’m dreaming of a White Christmas. I’ll never get used to it.
Whoever said that Disney is for young kids? You just need to be young at heart.
We even got to squeeze in some scare lessons, with Mike.
We had to stop in to see Santa Goofy. I needed to give someone my Christmas list. My husband didn’t want it. Sigh…
He’s so goofy!
We had a little bit of 3-D fun at Muppet Vision, and then played some air-guitar with Phineas and Ferb.
Did someone say, “Dance Party?”
I have no shame. Not anymore. None.
“Why yes, Baloo. Of course, I will dance with you.”
My son vanished in an instant. He was gone without a trace. He had flown the coop. He left no clues behind.
Was he embarrassed? Humiliated? Scared to be sucked into my pixie-dusted delusion? All of the above?
I do know this… He had had enough Kool-Aid for the day, to last a lifetime.
We finally made our way, over to the lights. It was super crowded.
But, they were as beautiful, as always.
One last selfie!
Thank you, Jennings Osborne (RIP), and family. It’s been fun!
Once we finished with the lights, we rode the Rock-n-Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror.
Dorks! Ha ha ha ha!
We had dinner back at The Boardwalk. We gave Trattoria al Forno, another try. We didn’t have much of a choice, as it was the only place that we could get a reservation. At least it was convenient.
I have to admit, it was a bit better than the last time. Maybe, they’re stepping up their game?
Well, that’s all she wrote on the Osborne Lights. I’m looking forward to seeing what the future brings.
