With nothing to do on Sunday the girls and I were trying to figure out what to do with our day. When asked, I got the standard response, "Disney!" Who was I to argue?
Should you wish to see all the photos I took that day, please visit HERE.
I was most excited to see the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, as I had never seen them before I couldn't wait to experience it.
It was a BEAUTIFUL day, slight breeze, perfect temperature, the crowds were bad but that was to be expected.
It seemed that my daughter was taking a little longer than I expected, so we did a little shopping while we waited.
Afterwards we ran over to the Fantasmic Courtyard to see High School Musical 2, it had been moved there temporarily due to the New Years stage in front of the hat.
They ushered us out after the show and we ended up right at the exit of ToT where I found a secret (to me) path that I never knew existed! It was a cool break from the crowds with great views and it acted like a kind of wind tunnel, but in a good way. I'll have to remember this for later.
About that time we got hungry so we headed over to the ABC Commissary. It seems Anna had a little trouble with a gator. See, they do exist!
ABC has now taken to naming their meals after their popular shows. I had a Dancing With the Stars with a side of Desperate Housewives. :lol:
After we ate we headed over to the Streets of America to get our place for the light switch flipping ceremony (say that three times fast lol.) While we waited Christina thought it would be funny to play Frogger through the crowds. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to tape it. LOL
Then the handpicked family did their job and flipped the switch. The one word that comes to mind after all the lights turned on was, "Festive!" It was so beautiful and to my surprise, I wasn't aware they played the Trans-Siberian Orchestra to the lights, it was an added treat for me! If you have the opportunity I HIGHLY recommend doing this at least once. My photos and video just don't capture what it feels like to stand on that street and have the music blaring around you, even the biggest Scrooge would have to smile.
So I will leave you will my photos and video, I apologize as I didn't have a tripod and the video was taken off my camera but you'll get the idea.
