Looks like they loved that Turkey Leg!

Cute, cute Minnie ears! You girls look adorable.

The BW area is so cool at night. I love how it's all lit up.

It just attracts so much traffic!! The lobbies are always full of people just hanging out and doesn't feel as cozy as a moderate or even a value. Just a little down side. I would still take any deluxe any day though. Haha
Thanks. Wait until you see another "Minnie ears" picture I have later that evening... You're going to

Beach Club is amazing. The lobby (and pool area) can be quite busy, but the rest of the resort was not so bad. The solarium was always empty, and so were the hallways to the rooms.

Thanks. I like that picture of us a lot.

The BW was beautiful.

It's amazing how different it looks during the day and all lit up at night.

Otaku was quite obsessed with those turkey legs!

Thanks!

Those Minnie ears are cute! I've never seen any like those before. Did Peanut get a pair too?

Ah!1 Love all the pictures of Beach Club! We went on a little adventure to Beaches and Cream last week and I'm pretty sure I fell in LOVE with the resort! It's so beautiful and amazing there, but I definitely understand the love for AoA more! It's more "Disney"! Love it!!

Otaku loves her meat!

It was such a nice walk, and with so many pretty things to look at.

I love the new styles of Minnie ears! Unfortunately, they are not as comfortable as they used to be.

I know, right? The new Minnie ears are so pretty!

Hopefully you get the chance to try BC one day.

Work is going fine, thanks for asking. The students have been so nice. I really have great groups this year, I'm lucky.

I'm sure Otaku would want one too.

You just made me chuckle.

Didn't Otaku just choose a perfect style for herself? It fits her so well! We somehow chose ears that matched our hair colors!

Those Minnie ears are all new. They had several styles to choose from. I heard that 2013 was the year of the ears and that they would have new styles coming out every month, but I haven't seen anything for February or March.

You'll have to wait for our day 4 to see what Peanut got.

It's easy to fall in love with Beach Club! It's so fancy, but not stuffy, and so relaxing. I hope you get a chance to stay there one day. AoA is so much fun though!

Day 3 part 4  The One With The Dancing Lights


We had made the trip to Hollywood Studios for one main reason, to see the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights.




I had heard from some of you that we might have to enter from the back, but on the night we went they were letting people in through any entrance. We arrived through the entrance near the Writers Stop. We got in line for almost every Photopass opportunities we saw. The first one was right at the entrance.




The rest of this update will be mostly pictures. I think its fair to say that we were blown away by the lights. Everybody who has ever said that pictures do not do them justice are right. Enjoy!








While in line for the Photopass in front of the giang tree and the Nutcrackers the music changed and the lights started to dance! It was so amazing!






Christmas is not the only holiday represented here.




We took our time walking around. There were plenty of hidden Mickeys everywhere, and Otaku & I were trying to find as many as we could.




Can you spot one here?




Theres even a hidden Minnie!











The lights danced a couple more times while we were there. On one of the streets there is literally this tunnel of lights. It was particularly spectacular to be in that tunnel while the lights were dancing.






Also while we were on that side street, it started snowing! Its the kind of snow that I like, and it certainly added to the atmosphere.






We saw Santa Goofy doing a meet & greet, but the line was too long.




Otaku and I searched everywhere for the purple cat. We even texted my TA to see if she knew where it was hidden this year, but no luck. We decided to just give up for this time, goggle it on my phone while at the resort, and come back another day. Then, just as we were about to leave the area, we found it!




It was on a little side alley between the Streets of America and Muppet Vision, right next to where we had started our tour of the Osborne Lights.




It was close to 10pm by then and the park was about to close, so we started walking out of the park. Ron had to stop around the Echo Lake area to feed a crying Peanut, so Otaku and I did a little shopping. Otaku found a cute little Mulan hat that she wanted to buy, but she wasnt sure yet. I knew Ron was probably getting impatient waiting for us, so I told her she could come back another day if she really wanted it. She never ended up buying it, though I think next time she might look for it instead of wearing Minnie Ears.

A PP photographer was at the Christmas tree, but no one wanted to take a picture with me so I went alone.




A Friendship boat was right there, but we werent sure wed make it in time without running, so we decided to walk instead. At some point during the walk Otaku decided to put her Minnie ears on her dad. He played along and we got these silly pictures out of it.






Once back at the resort we all went straight to bed. Again Claudia pretty much slept through the night, which we were so happy about. She was often fussy during the day though.

Love your pictures of the Lights. That was one of our favorite parts on our trip. Your photopass pictures are awesome, and I really can't get over how adorable Claudia is! I hope in 2014 when we go in December we can get a good Osbourne Light picture for our Christmas card.
