Hopefully I'm wrong on this one, but shouldn't Lights of Winter be up and visible by now?
Or if not actually standing in Epcot, it's usually off in the third parking lot at Epcot (and visible to drivers-by)... but it's not. I looked for it yesterday.
Worst sign of all, the new passholder magazine mentions all sorts of holiday decorations by name, but not Lights of Winter.
I know, I'm being conspiracy-minded. I hope the Lights are still coming. To imagine them as a budget cut would be sad indeed.
