I really want to do both as DH & DD didn't want to do Fantasmic last year because they didn't want to wait 60+ mins to get in. We've never been during holiday season & really want to see the lights. Please say we can do both.

We'll be doing the same thing. I was told by people that work there that the lights will be on for almost an hour after the official close so we will have plenty of time to enjoy the lights after Fantasmic.

So with FP+ you have about an hour before and an hour after to check out Osborne lights. I'm hoping to catch them before or catch them during HS EMH when we leave MK because that is not our MVMCP night so I understand I'm being escorted out of MK when my Crystal Palace dining is over around 7:30.

So I wouldn't panic over not seeing them.
Honestly I've never seen them so I have no idea besides a bunch of lights, what to expect. and I assume I'm not going to need 2 hours to see them.
Anyone want to correct me go for it.
Well sunset in Orlando mid-November isn't until 5:30, and I heard the lights go on closer to 6pm. Even with the FP+ you won't have time to see the lights before the show, but you will have plenty of time to see them after. I heard that you should give yourself a good hour or more if you like to see all the details. There will be photographers there to take your pictures and you'll want to experience the snow and see the the lights dancing to the music (I think that happens every 20 minutes or so). Santa Goofy might be there too.

SNOW? Why do you people keep using that word? SNOW in FL?!!! I'm going to get away from snow. Ok so maybe November is too early to get away from it but......... I will never admit I'm looking forward to snow.
Maybe the non accumulating kind won't be as bad. I just can't get over the fact that snow is such a big deal.

Bummer on the lights not going on until later. I'm going to have to try to get to EMH then on the 17th cause I'm leaving right from Fantasmic to go to Cape May for an 8pm Dinner reservation.

Considering we've had snow for the last 3 Halloweens I don't think it's too early to be looking to get away from it, but I LOVE snow and I never try to get away from it. Snow with all those lights sounds amazing, even if the snow is just bubbles.

I'm not positive on the exact time the lights go on, but I do know that the sun isn't going to set on November 18th until 5:31pm - they are closer to the equator there so their day is a bit longer.

Can someone help answer a question? I made the mistake of ordering a carry on bag online and I did not read the exact measurements I just assumed since it said carry on it was the right size. I have never even been in an airport let alone on a plane so I don't know the proper flying procedure but im flying AirTran and they say carry on size is 24 inches long X 16 inches wide X 10 tall. my bag is 22 in long X 11in wide and 12 in tall will this still be considered a carry on since its smaller overall. its a soft rolling duffel

Yes we have had a couple bad storms the end of October beginning of November the past few years. But I'm not anticipating that again. We bought a generator so the weather will be good now.

And NJ snow totals make me laugh. I have a friend down in NJ and everytime we have no school she laughs. She said it just about melts and the kids hardly get to go sledding.

For me the word snow means pretty much stuck at home.
I know for people that live further north they are laughing. It's all about perspective.

I'm sure it will be pretty. Like I said, it won't accumulate. Hopefully it will be nice and warm. Kind of like rain isn't fun but if it is sunny and raining it's kind of exciting to walk around out there.

Good night all. My Carriage is turning into a pumpkin!

Flip it around so that the tall is wide and the wide is tall.

I'd be shocked if it was a problem. I'm sure a more expert flyer will answer you. Or you can call the airline. But again they don't take out a tape measure and I would have my arguement ready with a big smile.

Good night all. My Carriage is turning into a pumpkin!
I'm in a part of NJ with a pretty high elevation so when it snows it usually sticks and stays for a bit. We are a good 5 degrees colder than the next town down the hill from us. Since my driveway has a 30 degree slope (yep really, totally against codes, someone must have been paying someone off when it was built), snow means I'm stuck at home too, but sleigh riding on my driveway ROCKS! Since we home school our schedule isn't really wrecked when something like that hits. Hubby parks his car at the bottom of the driveway and sleds down to it if he really has to go to work - he has a Subaru and it really is good in the snow.

We have had 3 major power outages in the last 2 years: 12 days, 8 days and 5 days. My kids are convinced that Halloween will be cancelled yet again. We have the generator ready and we are stocked up on gas and supplies already. My 13 year old has a list that he keeps checking to make sure we have everything we need.

My carriage turned into a pumpkin a couple of hours ago, but my hubby is on a boy scout trip with my oldest so the bed feels weird without him. I do have to coach in the am though so I should go get some sleep.

Thanks guys. I don't know why I never thought I this before last night. Lol. Glad we will be able to do both.

Are you kidding me?!? I freak out that bagpipes are in Canada! And, seriously, I love bagpipes, but if any of you like Celtic music, check out Lorenna McKennitt (sp). She is fabulous!!!

As for American or not: my family background is totally mutt. Yup, me and the kids are a little bit of everything: Scottish, Irish, Welsh, English, German, Polish, Hungary (that's the Jewish part), and even Cherokee Native American (my ancestors escaped the Trail of Tears - they could pass as white and hid in the mountains of Virginia). So, we're mutts and definitely Americans. Hubby, however: his grandparents were right off the boat from Italy. They never refused to speak American (not English....totally different language. ). He is 6 and a half feet tall.....yup, that's right a very, very tall Italian. His mom's family is from Sweden.....the original settlers in our small county in the 1600s. Kinda cool.

I love World Showcase and can't wait to get there for the food (oh, and shopping....)!!!

LMAO You know, I just spit soda of my keyboard!!! lol The kids and I recognize ourselves as Jewish and Kyle (my middle child) has been spending a lot of time at the Community Center lately. He asked me if he was gonna have his Bar Mitzvah next year. I said "have you done the 6 years of Hewbrew school?" He said no and I laughed. I told him we'll celebrate at home, but, no, he's not getting the huge party all his new friends are getting. Kids.....

As for Disney planning: I am going to finish packing today and make my LGMH. And I have to work on the budget and September financials, too, but I can do that while we watch Disney movies (and Iron Man 3, but that still counts cause Disney owns Marvel, right?).

I agree. Especially for a soft- sided bag. It just has to fit into the overhead bin. Should not be a problem.
