I will knock the Flower and Garden... because it's one of the 4 I've seen and it was just "ok" like.. I dont think I would purposely plan a trip around it like I would the others.

Well the only one out of all of them that I have ever been to is the Osborne Spectcle of lights but there are other's that I would choose to go to over that if I could. I was going to take from the marathon's first cause that's not my thing but since it's already out I will go with the Epcot Candlelight Processional...just doesn't sound to exciting to me

Wow! Systematic Elimination! I see running is not a priority, nor are topiaries Smile. F&G holds a special place in my heart because it was a girls' day tradition with my Mom and grandmother, and MaMa passed away last year. Love LOVE Candlelight Processional, so it's Star Wars Weekends for Me. Something's gotta give.

I beg to differ!

To me... Disney World already has some amazing flowers, and I know the Flower and Garden Festival is bigger... but for me... everything is already beautiful. Kinda like how Mother's Day is technically everyday, and not just one day awesome

Hate to do this to Mase and the other Star Wars folks....but ... Yoda is no help here...Star Wars Weekends just are Disney to me, and is last on the list to me...although I have not been @ WDW for the 2 Christmas events, I have only heard good things...and have been there for all of the other events, which are fantastic Smile

Star Wars is my non-survivor...

Sorry to the MNSSHP lovers. Nothing against it. I like the F&W Fest and I like Christmas better than Halloween. I'm sure I would enjoy the party if I went.

My favorites in order are F&W, Candlelight, and Osborne Lights. F&G was better, when they had concerts every night like F&W. Last time I went to Halloween and Christmas parties, the cost was around $30. Now both cost more than four margaritas @ La Cava. Castle looks good at night during Christmas, so Halloween it is.

I think i'm going to knock out food and wine....while i think it might be fun to try...i to do not drink...and while i'm up for trying new foods i just don't know how adventuours i would be so don't know if the cost would be worth it.
