Do you miss the Osborne Lights?

The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights was part of many people’s holiday tradition. The combination of the music, lights, and the snoap (snow made from soap) created a unique experience and made it truly feel like the holiday season was here. I’ll admit, I wasn’t the biggest fan of it. Mostly because of the […]

The Whos of Whoville: Then and Now

The Whos of Whoville are kind of like the scareactors of Grinchmas. They’re seasonal characters that have cool makeup, wear cool clothes, and wander the streets of Seuss Landing (in between shows) interacting with guests and getting into mischief.

This will be the first year they will do any sort […]
