We already brought you an update that included the first Osborne Light showing for 2010 (it was a cast member preview we were invited to). Now we have the first Cinderella Castle lighting too in photos and a full video!
It was really great to see the castle lit again for the holidays. It seemed a little too early a few days back, but it turned cold just at that time – at least chilly for Florida! We've had temps as low as the 40's at night, which really helps with the holiday spirit (even if Christmas is still about 7 weeks away). Tonight is the first Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party!
Remember the first year of the Christmas lighting, when it started at dusk? (and at that time, the Christmas tree was already standing). I have Christmas desktop wallpapers that include some of my favorite photos from that time!
