The Osborne Lights are a definite. I've heard that they are awesome, and I definitely want to see them. We'll likely do that on our first night at Walt Disney World. As for the other things, I'm sort of unfamiliar. I've never been to Disney during the holiday season, and since I have to prioritize, as well as fit two birthdays into the (already busy!) trip, I'm not sure what to do.
As for Magic Kingdom, the castle lights will likely still be up for the first few days of our trip Since I plan on being at the Magic Kingdom at least one night for sure, I'm not worried about seeing that. At Epcot, I know there is a Christmas tag to the end of IllumiNations, but I'm not sure if that will still be going on in January. (Do any of you know?) Hollywood Studios has the Osborne Lights, and Animal Kingdom has Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade. This parade is really throwing me for a loop. I know the seasonal parades tend to be awesome (Boo to You anyone?), but I'm not sure I want to take time out of my birthday to go over to the Animal Kingdom just to see this parade. My birthday, however, is the only possible day to see this parade on our trip...
Then there are the resorts. We'd likely be checking out the Beach and Yacht Club as well as the Boardwalk on our first day, regardless of whether or not there were decorations. Luckily, these resorts will hopefully have great decorations. Additionally, I've heard that many other resorts have great decorations as well, but it's hard to clear out time so early in our busy schedules for resort hopping just for decorations. Is it really worth the time to see the decorations at various resorts?
This blog post is all over the place because my thoughts on this topic are all over the place. There are so many Christmas-y things to fit into just a few, already busily planned, birthday filled days. Which are the most important to see? Is Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade really worth the trip over? Will IllumiNations still have the Christmas tag in early January? Are there any absolute must-see resort decorations? I really do need your help with these questions, so please let me know in a comment, on Twitter (@discollegeblog), or on Facebook!
