    Thumbs up Frontierland Christmas Lights (Do you find them annoying?)

    Riding BTM in the dark is so cool with the atmosphere at night. But at christmas time you find these huge quantities of Christmas lights from Big Thunder Ranch sort of destroying the atmosphere. What's your opinion on what I think is small but a little debatable to share?

    I can't believe it but I don't remember lights on BTMRR. Sometimes I am so unobservant. Anyway, I can see your point, especially because there would not have been electric lights on the frontier.

    Anything at the Ranch is so right... it simply can't be wrong

    though, "No, it actually enhances my experience" was not an option on your pole, it would have been my vote.

    What an aweful thing to complain about.

    Re: Frontierland Christmas Lights (Do you find them annoying?)

    I think what's more disturbing is that modern Christmas lights are strung all over the realm of the Western Frontier.

    Yeah, yeah. I'm sure I won't get any points for this, but Christmas lights in Frontierland neither compliment or enhance the holiday decor in Frontierland.

    And don't even get me started on the excessive amount of Christmas lights in New Orleans Square.

    Sure, it might look nice, but is completely contradictory to the theme and story of the land.


    And actually, I personally DO think that there are WAY, WAY, WAY too many Christmas lights strung throughout New Orleans Square... but that's a different rant for a different time.

    The lights are nice but it bothered me they didn't shut them off for Fantasmic.

    So do the non-Christmas lights on the Main Street building exteriors. They were not originally there but Walt liked them so much that he decided to keep them regardless of not completely fitting in a turn of the century town just barely converting from gas to electric power.

    Now if those Frontierland lights weren't so purdy then we'd have an issue.

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!
