Leu Gardens Dazzling Nights 2022

We returned to Leu Gardens this evening to catch the final night of the “Dazzling Nights” lights show; it was quite different to last years event but still very enjoyable – especially the laser/lights/music show which I have some video of at the end of this post. Meanwhile, lots of photos of course!

And here as promised, some video from the music synchronized laser/lights that we found – when we got there two performers were singing live, later it was recordings but it was all good!

Disney Springs Christmas Trees 2022

Unlike previous years (2018, 2019) the Christmas Trees are scattered throughout the shopping areas of Disney Springs rather than clustered together in a special area – better for the shops no doubt as it makes people walk around … We walked from end to end yesterday and I think we caught all of the trees and a few other decorations (though it was busy so maybe we missed something!)

Asian Lantern Festival 2022

Last year we visited Sanford Zoo to see their spectacular Asian Lantern Festival; in fact it was so good we went twice last year – and last night we returned, taking friends with us. Amazingly we saw almost no repeat designs from last year, with everything different but just as spectacular as our previous visit – and here of course, are lots of photos …

A number of the “lanterns” are animated (some even interact, responding to banging drums nearby!) so here’s a video compilation of some of the moving displays:
