    SO tell me EVERYTHING you know about Osbourne Lights

    We need to convince Snowbirds (donnie's dad and step mom) to join us at MGM and I need to tell them everything I can to talk them into coming along. I know Dad will enjoy this immensly and it is not something to be missed but the info out there is kinda limited on it. I did find some awesome Youtube videos to him to see and lots of great still photos. I have heard about the snow. What else should I sell them on? I did hear soemthing about hot cocoa. Anything else you can tell me will help. Plus I like to be prepared for things too. Thanks guys
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    Okay. Seriously. You cannot be planning another trip until you finish telling us about the last one!

    Honestly, the first time we were there a few years ago I really could have cared less about seeing the lights. But after going to them last year I LOVED them. I wanted to stay there all night. The music is great and yes there is hot chocolate that you have to pay for but you can get it in a cool lighted mug. I have one from last year.

    What dates are you going to be there? I don't think you told me for sure.

    All I know:
    They look really awesome and I can't wait to see them for the first time. At least I HOPE I get to see them this year.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?

    Ah that brings back good memories....Gae got the hot cocoa in the light up mug, the BEST was in the ToT TV room, some guy yelled "hey lady, turn off your bag" she had put her mug still lit up in her back made of material, in the dark you could see the lights glowing. Thank goodness she had turned her hat off! Anyway, to get back to the lights, the best part for me is when the lights came on, very cool effect, I think it's worth seeing at least once. I also liked the giant light switch, that was fun to see.

    Got to love the mug and the hat!

    It was beautiful and fun to walk around. Take your time after they turn them on and walk around! So much more than just the turning on of the lights! Very Beautiful!

    Are you allowed to just plant yourself in a non-traffic spot and watch or do you have to "keep moving, keep moving" ?

    we are planning a trip for December

    I've seen the Osborne Spectacle twice and enjoyed it immensely both times. My most vivid memory, though, is of people walking into each other. They were too busy looking up to pay attention to where they were walking!

    This is the schedule of times they have on WDW info.com but I know I saw it on the official site too and it was more simplified but the times were the same give or take. I know that week they were scheduled for 6-8 on Monday and Tuesday cause we were thinking about going those days too. LOL

    Sponsored by Sylvania, the 2007/2008 schedule is: 11/12 - 11/21 6:00 - 7:00pm
    11/22 - 11/24 6:00 - 8:00pm
    11/25 -11/30 6:00 - 7:00pm
    12/1 - 12/24 6:00 - 8:00pm
    12/25 - 12/30 6:00 - 10:00pm
    12/31 6:00pm - 12:00am
    1/1 - 1/5 6:00 - 8:00pm

    Thank you for the disclaimer. Ha ha! So they go on at 6 and then at 8 again or they are on between those times?

    When are you going to be there again?

    I'm not sure...anyone who has been please answer.. I thot they would just kinda do them continuesly between those times since some nites they are only scheduled for an hour.

    Hopefully (depends on this week's paycheck and what the nice ppl at the gas company tell me)
