    Happy New Year Rick! My favorite osborn lights area is the dancing lights themselves when all the buildings are “Dancing” to the christmas carols, love it. I also love the purple cat, its always an adventure to find its new hiding place. My favorite memory of christmas at disney was when we were at Animal Kingdom and we got the opportunity to ride in the Jammin Jingle Jungle Parade. Take care, Happy New Year

    Hi Rick,
    I loved the Osbourne Lights but the night we saw them the cast members
    didn’t know how to handle the crowd. People stopped to watch the dancing lights but other people wanted to walk through but couldn’t! I enjoyed the lights more when they were on the residential street many years ago.

    My favorite Christmas attraction would be the seeing the beautiful Cinderella Castle. This is why we came this Dec. because I had seen photos but I wanted to see it in person. I just love Disney World at Christmas!

    Happy New Year!

    My favorite memory is eatting dinner at Crystal Palace and watching the castle turn different colors. Beautiful.

    Happy New Year, Rick!!
    I absolutely love the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights!! The first time I turned the corner and saw the millions of dancing lights I was in awe! I could have watched them all night! I loved looking for the cat and the hidden Mickeys. The flying angels are spectacle. (Guess you can tell they are my favorite Disney memory!)
    I also loved hearing the Voices of Liberty in the American Adventure at Christmas time. Their voices blend so well and their selections brought tears to my eyes because it was so beautiful.
    Thanks Rick for another year of great videos! Can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2011!!

    Another great video Rick! It was interesting to hear the inside scoop on both events. I still need to visit WDW at Christmas time but I sure enjoyed the 12/13 Days of videos so maybe that is my new Disney holiday memory. As far as the Osborne Lights I love the quirky fact of the cat.
    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year Rick and thank you John and Kris for taking time out of your busy schedules to give us the inside scoop of my two favorite Disney holiday traditions. It’s truly awesome what goes into bringing us the Osbourne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights every year. With so many places removing the reason for the season, JESUS, from everything, the Candlelight Processional tells what Christmas is all about! My favorite Disney Christmas memory is taking a Wishes private cruise in the Seven Seas Lagoon with my bride and two boys, loving that, and my favorite part of the Osborne lights is the flying angels and the globe with “Peace on Earth”! Take care my friends and keep smilin’!

    Thanks for all the fun

    Hi Rick, John, and Kris, Thanks for the informative video about the Osburne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights and the Candlelight Processional.

    Today at church a man asked me if I had made any New Years Resolutions. I hadn’t but I made one up real quick. It is to go to Disney World next Christmas.

    After watching all the videos from The 12 Days of Christmas Disney Style I am more pumped about going to Disney World at Christmas time. The biggest draw for me is to see the Candlelight Processional. I love all the decorations and celebrations with Santa Claus. But Christmas isn’t Christmas unless I can celebrate the true meaning of the holiday. When I saw the video of the Candlelight Processional I felt that my Christmas Celebration was complete. I just have to go to Disney World and see it live.

    Happy New Year!
    The first time I saw the Dancing Lights they were still on the TV set houses in back. I really liked that. When they moved them to the Streets of America they handed out glasses and they made the lights more special. I don’t know if they still do that. I still have the glasses and look at the local lights that way.
    It’s too hard to pick a favorite part of the Holiday Celebrations. I just love the way everything is themed to Christmas at that time, even the music in the resorts have their own special flavor of Christmas music and decor.

    Happy New Year Rick!
    Loved the insight into the Holiday Celebrations! It has been several years since I visited during the Holidays, but the one thing I loved about the Osborne Lights was the angels – the year I came with my step-daughter in early December I remember the CM handing out 3D glasses, when once you put them on you saw little angels dancing all around each individual light! While it was hard to walk and look thru them, I loved it – in fact I still have the glasses and I put them on each season – puts me back at WDW and the Osborne Lights.
    My favorite Holiday memory is the same year and visiting it with my step-daughter – we had an awesome girl weekend and saw all kinds of decorations at all the parks and most of the hotels also. Not sure if she still has her 3D glasses, but I do know we both enjoyed it so much.
