    I still can't imagine that they will completely disappear from property... Osborne is just way too popular...

    But then again, a lot of people felt that way about the Adventures' Club.

    What's nice is that today with YouTube, even the stuff that's gone isn't ever truly gone. Nothing compared to seeing it in person, but we can still relive things that are retired.

    The 'problem' here is the massive space they take up. Even if they were to be relocated, you would still need dead space. If Disney could erect their metal frames along straight clear walkways somewhere, they'd be in good shape. I just can't think of anywhere. Well, that's not true. I drive through display over at Wilderness Campgrounds would be great. But it would also create congestion.

    Great point. I can't think of any decision that upset guests more at WDW. Just flatly closed it down just because.

    Yeah, and when those lights are off the lights and props are very intrusive. It takes Disney months to erect. The Castle lights at least somewhat disappear for the most part during the day not disturbing the theme of the area.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    What's 'nice', I guess, about WDW is that there are thousands of visitors making their very first trip to WDW each year who have never even heard of the Adventurer's Club, don't miss it, and don't have a clue that it's gone. Take something out of Disneyland, and the locals go nutty. At WDW, we worry more about nostalgia than for the lack of something to do.

    Couldn't agree more. I will certainly miss them if/when they disappear, but I'm sure there will be ideas pitched about a possible move elsewhere in DHS or on property before it was just nixed completely.

    Re: Osborne Lights, Is 2013 the final year?

    OK, so here is another twist that has popped up. It is being said that LMA crew have a 4 year extention to their contract? I have not found their union contract online yet, but I haven't looked very hard. Now there seems to be a mini upgrade coming NOW to the Backlot Tour. They will be mess'n with Walt's plane and putting the movie "planes" eye balls on it. They will also be afixing eyeballs the pearl harbor planes. Rumors are saying the backlot tour will go under a rehab for 3 months in February 2014 to add more to the backlot tour. Hmpf.

    LMA rumored contract, if true messes up some theories. Plane eye-balls on the other hand are a gimmic for
    "Planes" and that movie will be a DVD likely by winter and that doesn't really mess with the rumored expansions for DHS. But it does make looking at the rumor of Indian Jones/Echo Lake/Idol area as the StarWars area.

    Maybe D23 will straighten it out rumors since they plan to address Star Wars at the convention. Oy.

    If they do start with the paint for eyeballs, maybe it'll just be wrap, like they do with the monorails. Nothing permanent.

    Lights of winter

    What do you call an area that is used for 1 1/2 months and then goes unvisited 10 1/2 months of the year? Wonders of Life.

    Now I loved lights of winter at Epcot........much more than Osborne. Loved the music tied to the dancing lights and Epcot is my fav park. I could sit and watch the lights and the water dancing at the same time! Miss it

    Were they trying to see if we would notice?
