Birthday Preparations at the MK??

I have another update planned for today with some stories from work, but first I thought I'd do a quick post with something I saw at the Magic Kingdom yesterday...

I was curious when I noticed the crane over the castle down Main St., wondering if it was repairs or what they were doing up there!

When I got closer to the castle, I saw they were putting up lights!  I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but there's a net of lights (like the frosted ones they put up in the winter) right below the main spire and hanging across the front a bit -- they didn't seem to put them up anywhere else on the castle.

As I stood staring up at the lights and the workers in the little cage I wanted to yell up, "It's not even October yet -- how can you possibly be putting up the Christmas lights this early?!?"

lol, of course I didn't actually shout at them, but I kinda did want to ask how the view was -- I bet Main St. looks really cool from up there, don't you think??

I continued to wonder why they would put up the Christmas lights months before they could be needed - but when I got home and was surfing some Disney blogs, I read that the Magic Kingdom is doing a special finale to Wishes in honor of Walt Disney World's 40th anniversary.

OOOoohhhh, that's when I realized -- the lights probably have something to do with that!

The big day is October 1st, this Saturday, and luckily I have off!  You better bet I'll be heading over to the MK to see what surprise birthday celebrations they might have going on.  I can't wait to see those lights in action!

**It turns out, sadly, that there were no special lights in the 40th anniversary Wishes, only some extra perimeter fireworks during the finale.  Looks like those were just the Christmas lights!**
