If they do away with the Osborn lights I will not travel to Disney again for Christmas. They have already done away with the Christmas lights on the bridge at Epcot enough is enough.

You are correct.

HOWEVER, if the Star Wars and/or Pixar Place expansion rumors are to be believed (and those really are picking up a lot of steam as of late), then Streets of America is leaving and thus no place to put the lights (for now).

I just can't imagine them doing away with this entirely...it's too popular of an attraction. I could see if they were having trouble attracting people to it, but that is definitely not the case. I'm sure it just has something to do with this expansion and will just be relocated, but only time will tell.

Personally, I at least hope that it sticks around at least in some kind of capacity, as it is my absolute favorite thing that WDW does for the holidays!

I certainly hope that the lights stay. My wife and I try to make it down each Christmas to see all of the holiday-specific offerings and this is one of our favorites. Like others, we were sad to see EPCOT lose the Lights of Winter and hope DHS doesn't suffer a similar fate.

But that's a pretty big assumption, isn't it? That the new expansions would require the closure of SOA? From what I've read, the Pixar place expansion would move into part of the current backlot area.

As for a Star Wars land- I wouldn't get too hooked on the idea that it would be located adjacent to the current Star Tours. Taking over SOA would also mean getting rid of the Muppets 3D, Honey I Shrunk the Kids (no great loss), Mama Melrose, and Pizza Planet. I think it's just as likely that they would take over the LMA/Catastrophe Canyon area instead.

But this is all deriving from one or 2 vague sentences rumoured by a couple of CMs? I'm not going to panic just yet.

Boring day off with thunderstorms outside, so....

Heard it from a friend who's daughter is dating a guy who knows the wife of a Disney Bus driver, and the really change is:

Osborne lights will be moved to Disney Springs!!

Also the AC will reopen!

Say it Ain't So!

I hope this is just a rumor! Our next trip will be November 2014 & I was sooo looking forward to seeing the Osborne lights again. Now, I wish we could squeeze a holiday trip in this year- just in case!

Oh I hope this isn't true. We've never been to see them. We had planned to go this year but my mother passed away in March so we decided to go in 2014 instead of 2013. Gotta keep an eye on this thread for sure!

I see this rumor only coming true if an expansion is announced i believe the expansion would take place of much of that ack area. I've never seen the light show in person and I'm crazy for Christmas lights myself. My house is thousands of lights done to music and I've always wanted to see those in person. But I think if a big expansion is done and its done right over the years we won't miss the light show much anymore. But I only believe this is a rumor because of the rumored expansions at DHS.

Ohhh no... With all those people in the loop than it must be true. Jeez... Next someone will be telling me that the Hyperion Wharf project is on hold.

But seriously... There are fewer things at Disney that get the hairs on the back of my neck up, and my jaw drop like the Osbourne Lights (especially at light switch time). Hoping that this stays in the rumor realm.

This would be a shame. I saw them for the first time last year, and enjoyed them so much that we actually discussed checking them out annually.

The Disney Springs idea is *not* horrible. They would certainly drive traffic to Disney's shopping destination. I'm not sure why Disney wouldn't like this idea.
