No Lights of Winter in 2009 - Possibly Beyond

I'm sad to see this display go. It was one of my favorites. I'm even more disappointed in the replacement (gospel choir). I hope they replace the lights with something better in the future.
I think these cuts are getting a little too rediculous; too much too fast. I know Disney is trying to make their way in a tough economy, but couldn't they have waited to purchase Marvel for $3 billion dollars instead of some of these serious cuts in the parks.
On the Disneyparks Twitter account it makes mention that the reason for the removal of Lights of Winter was due to outdated bulb technology. A pretty lame excuse in my opinion. With Siemens being a park sponsor and Disney's brilliant Imagineers I'm sure they could have worked through the technology and brought the lights back.

I wont post about how the Lights of Winter are a pinnacle of Disney parks and the reason I go to Epcot during December, but it has become a staple of the event and its abrupt departure along with a number of other recent cuts too numerous to list here, leave a very sour taste in my mouth.
