Like most other things Walt Disney World, Frozen has taken over the Cinderella Castle lighting at Magic Kingdom, resulting in heavier crowds and a much more trying experience for those attempting to take in the show. On Party nights, it’s scheduled at 6:15pm for everybody and then again at 8pm for Party goers. On non-Party nights, it’s scheduled at 6:15pm and again at 7:30pm. Shortly after the 6:15pm show, the Dream Lights are turned off in preparation for the second lighting.

Not unsurprisingly, each of the first two Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Parties have sold out with the Wine and Dine Marathon and Veterans Day holiday bringing a lot of people to the resort on relatively short trips where they try to cram in as much as possible. Despite being some of the busiest Parties of the year, wait times at the major attractions remain short:

Anything with a posted wait of 5 or 10 minutes should more or less be a walk-on, leaving only a few attractions with actual waits of more than 10 minutes. Wait times are surprisingly short for many of the characters with posted waits. My hypothesis is that there are relatively few people willing to wait 45+ minutes for a character and they’re largely busy waiting for the Dwarfs or Sandy Claws, reducing waits at the characters that ordinarily meet.

It’s been a while since we took the time to visit Downtown Disney, because really…who cares, but with some recent developments it may be worth checking out.

Over to Hollywood Studios to fit in an update in front of tonight’s debut of the Osborne (still no ‘u’) Spectacle of Dancing Lights. As reported a couple of weeks ago, the Sorcerer’s Hat is coming down in “early 2015,” most likely beginning the second week in January. Its removal is not so much a “re-connection” with the Studios’ original purpose, but more of a way to install a permanent stage and set off nightly fireworks. The hat gets in the way of both.

Following a big September merchandise update, we return to the Stuff Kingdom of the World. Most of these things are in the vicinity of new, though some are a little older and may have caught the eye of the website. Christmas/Holiday stuff is in this post: http://www.easywdw.com/uncategorized/walt-disney-world-2014-christmas-and-holiday-merchandise/. Locations where the pictures were taken are listed though many items can be found in multiple locations.
