I think if we were going to see any big holiday lights at Epcot they'd be installed already, or at least in progress.

No such luck with holiday lights at Epcot. I just got an email from Disney about the holidays.

Here is their official calendar. http://image.passholder.disneyparks....oad_121105.pdf

Darn! Each year I hope they're coming back. I guess "guest demand" isn't enough. Maybe next year!

Welcome to Bitter Town my fellow citizens. Join me in remembering the Lights of Winter. Someone please explain to me why they couldn't have done something in that area?

Your Mayor of Bitter Town

I wish they were back too. I am taking my granddaughter this year and i told her about the way it was the last time I saw them. She would have liked to see them.

I wonder if one of the reason they went away could have been guest safety with to many people stopping to watch them. Yes I know they have the Osborne lights that put on a show as well, but they aren't on a main pathway in the park where if people stop and look at something they create a tripping hazard. At least with the Osborne lights everyone is there to see them and knows they are there.
