Pictures from Disney

We returned from our short holiday last night. Tired but happy, driving to Disney World is a yearly tradition for those of us living in the southern tip of Florida (for some us it's more than once a year). My family has wonderful memories of the parks; while my kids were growing up we never missed a year. Now that they are adults we are continuing our tradition and have a great time re-living the memories.
I took many pictures of the Christmas lights, unfortunately I've not been a very good photographer as many of them did not come out good.

This picture is of Cinderella’s castle lit up at night; this picture does not do justice to how spectacular it was.

Main Street during the day.

EPCOT Center was decorated everywhere.

At Disney's Hollywood Studios (formerly MGM Studios) the main event is the Osborne Family Spectacular dancing lights. The Osborne Family from Little Rock, Arkansas had a tradition to decorate their home with thousands of lights and the tradition grew to over a million. The lights were donated to Disney and today it features over 5 million dancing lights decorating a city block. Sorry the pictures are not very good.

No visit to Disney’s EPCOT center is complete without a visit to my favorite, the Land Pavilion.
This Dragon Fruit plant on display resembles my own, but I think mine out did theirs.

Looks like you had a good time! They did a good job on the castle. (The Land is my favorite too, since I was a little kid. Guess it is a gardener thing.)

Who wouldn't want a trip to Disney World! We might have to offer this trip to our grown son! More fun now. Happy holidays!

You did pretty awesomely considering they are at night. The first picture had me at hello.
