Don't get me wrong, though, this is an impressive display, and well worth seeing. I just would have liked a little more room to breathe in the middle, to let the lights sink in, rather than a solid mass of light from beginning to end. That would have required a much larger display area, of course.
Nice photos...this light spectacle reminds me of something that would make Clark Griswold weep in adoration!
Nice pics. Does look a little overwhelming. Would love to see something referring to some of the classic Disney stuff. Maybe something a little more hometownish. I just remember a Disney movie, might be a short film, about Donald having Christmas at a cabin in the woods. Chops down a tree that Chip and Dale live in. They end up having this big fight using toy guns, nutcrackers, and more. Always a favotire of mine when I was a kid. You guys pretty much nailed it when you described a neighborhood decorated.
Think a holiday "Fantasmic!" in lights. (No lasers, no fireworks, just lights.) C'mon, you can't tell me that they wouldn't absolutely rock all over that.
I agree with you that it would be much more powerful in a more neighborhood kind of environment with each house being decorated differently. One other thing I would like to see them do is change it up. Don't make it look the same year after year and just maybe adding a light display here or there. I have to say I didn't go yet this year but from your pictures I don't want to go, it is the exact same set up as last year from the looks of it. I'm pretty sure the Disney Imagineers could come up with something new together with the Osborn Family. They do have the biggest light display around but yet I'm seeing videos of Families around the country who decorate their houses with thousands of lights, program them to music, and still put on a better show than Disney does with this.
Sorry Disney, but you need to change it up, it's getting old (in my own opinion).
Each of the houses' decorations kind of embodies the personalities of those inside. The blinking lights, for example, are from the goofy, happy-go-lucky family on our street. I'm sure that the designers could give these displays more heart by examining each building and tying to embody the building's personality through the display.
