    The kids and I were waxing nostalgic the other night about the neat holographic glasses Disney used to hand out at the Osborne Lights...we all agreed they were fun and festive and we missed them :)

    So tonight I was avoiding doing work and did a little searching and found these!

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._ya_os_product

    I also bought a snowman pair and an angel pair!! SO EXCITED! (AND! I remembered to use Keith's link!! )

    I dont think there is Kate :/ I just have them at the left hand side but if you click on that link to take you to Amazon and then you buy something, although you pay the best price amazon have, the site gets a tiny thankyou from amazon which all helps of course

    It's just a no-lose way of helping the site since the price you pay is exactly the same anyway

    Hmmmm not sure when they stopped doing them?? Perhaps when they moved from the backlot to the city (boo!)? I know a couple of years ago, they offered them to AP holders...but not to the general pop.

    As for the difference they made...I s'pose that's subjective. Some people LOVED them, other people thought they were "meh". I think my kids and I remember them fondly because the experience itself held such amazing memories and, as one tends to do at times like that, you remember the "little" things.

    The last year I remember having them was the year before they tore down the old backlot.
