In Which Jenn Mourns the Osborne Lights

I know - everyone's doing it. But how can you not?

Last November, I did not set foot in Disney's Hollywood Studios. Not once. Why bother? Rock 'n Roller Coaster was done, I had no companion goading me into Tower of Terror, and the Great Movie Ride and Star Tours, while fun, are hardly enough to lure me alone.

I would've made the time if the Osborne Lights were still around.

I have so many wonderful memories of sharing a drink with Katherine while we danced among the lights. Of running through the Streets of America during the Wine & Dine Half in 2014 and 2015. Of saying to Elizabeth, "One more song. One more song." repeatedly as I gazed at the spectacle for what I knew would be the last time.

I knew I would miss the lights. I didn't know I would miss them this much.

  1. I was just at Disney for the weekend trying to check out all of the holiday stuff, and nothing else that they offer can compare to the lights. It was easily the best part of Christmas at Disney. I miss them.

    1. I'm a crazy dreamer and hold out hope they'll reappear someday...

  2. I just cannot believe they think they will make more money from the whole Star Wars thing to warrant taking away the one thing that drew so many people there for the holidays. Nothing can compare to the Lights. Nothing.

    1. Well, people do seem to like Star Wars a lot... even though Trek is CLEARLY 1000x better.
