    Christmas time specials at WDW 2013

    I thought I'd put these all in one place.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    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.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    I'd really like to see the JC overlay in person. Hope they continue to do this.

    Once again, for year three Comedy Warehouse (formerly from Pleasure Island) will be preforming at the Studio's.
    The tentative schedule is December 21st through January 5th, subject to change.

    This show has been very well received the last two years.

    Mike... I know I haven't been around the past few months... let me know you opinion of the JC xmas overlay... I really think that the future holiday overlays in WDW will depend on guest feedback...

    You got it, Joe. I was hoping to use my stupid wrist bands to at least get that fast pass, but my old tickets won't allow it. Stupid Disney. So as long as the line isn't crazy, I hope to go on once in the AM and then again in the evening.

    For old tickets and Magic Bands they have to be converted over at Guest Relations. They are going to have to be converted no matter what I believe at least minimally to RFID card if you choose against MB conversion. I'm guessing you still will be able to get a JC FP when you arrive given the other more popular E attraction will be the go to first picks.

    I only watched the castle projection show. I don't usually watch them, so it was neat to see one finally. Wanted to experience Jingle Cruise before I watched it, so I'm holding off on that one for now.

    I've seen the Osborne family lights ever year, and to be honest, the more they do with it, the less impressed I am. I was fine with just walking around and seeing the holiday overlay. Then they danced, then they were threatening Glow with the Show ears... enough already.

    A few year ago, after one Trans Siberian Orchestra's fans synced up their house lights 'Wizards in Winter' and posted it on line, Disney jumped on the band wagon with Osborne. I could tolerate that, and didn't mind as much when they tried it at DHS because it was just one song, and it was every 20 minutes. It became something special. Then they synced it up to 3 songs, then 5.

    One year I was there and the lights were dancing to Barbra Steisand's 'Jingle Bells' (easily one of the worst version of a holiday song out there). That was the year I walked away shaking my head in disgust.

    Re: Christmas time specials at WDW 2013

    I'm kinda torn with Osborne. It is nice on one hand to have Disney updating so it doesn't become stale. Still, now it is overwhelming. Similar to some tacky homes around my home.

    I loved, loved the original. We went through the streets on Christmas Eve one year, each house being decorated differently like a neighborhood all while walking under a lit arch. At the end you ended in the square (don't remember what that was called) where there was a beautiful creche.

    Back in 2007 I took my DD down for a dual purpose trip at Thanksgiving. Her sweet 16th and my DS was doing a college program stint and I hadn't seen him since I dropped him off that summer. That was the first time I saw Osborne in its new digs. Beautiful still, so freak'n crowded. Hadn't seen my DS yet and knew he was going to meet us eventually around that time frame. He came in he said from a back entrance of MGM. He stood right behind my DD and me as we watched the show. He was still in his under Armour red warm up rescue duds that looked orange with the lightening when the show was over. I saw there was a missed call and proceeded to call him back and he answered his phone....funny exchange as he tried to explain where he was standing (behind us) in those hordes of people. So I have a sweet memory of my first encounter with the new Osborne.

    And shortly after I realized not every role had the same neat, restrictions on male CM haircuts. Next day I took him to the GF for a good haircut. I don't usually watch the castle show. It is ridiculously crowded and I'm not a fan, reminds me of Time Square on NYE which I will never do again.

    Re: Christmas time specials at WDW 2013

    Would have been nice to snag. Will have to keep my eyes open for my trip in a couple of weeks to see what they'll be doing during my stay. I called WDW twice asking if they had any information, and I was met by the same reply... literally -- "And could you please tell me what Limited Time Magic is so that I can get you more information?" Ummm... yeah. That's sort of why I'm calling. I was hoping YOU could tell ME what Limited Time Magic was. I mean, you work there, not me.
