Maybe I can get Swift to put a photo in the post for those to see.

Let's poll.

Any better? I feel that the HoS stands are much better. They look cool lit up at night with what appears to be black lights and have a pop to them that fits. It looks like some thought went into them. I have only been to HoS twice this season due to homework and being outta town Friday-Sunday morning but a good look when it is light then dark surely shows an improvement.

I don't know if they are any better, but they do look nice. My only problem is that they don't really have anything that glows in them. They only have a bunch of little LED light toys and whatnot. Now some things I guess do have that "glow" when seen under a black light, but I think it is a misleading name... "GLOW STAND" and have nothing that actually glows of its own volition. It may be splitting hairs, but I wanted some glow sticks the other night. I asked the merchant if they sold anything that glows and he said no. That being said, I did find a snack cart that was selling GLOW-IN-THE-DARK cotton candy near the carousel. My daughter was happy about that, but asked if it was safe to eat. I laughed, but wondered silently to myself.

Where are the BUBBLES?!?!

Glow is just referring to the fact the item lights up and practically glows. Glow is more or less just leading to the fact it is an item that provides light in dark areas, not necessarily to whether or not it lights up electronically or glows through chemical reaction.

Are you talking about the cotton candy that comes on a electronic stick that lights up?

EDIT:

Here is a picture of the new France glow stand. They moved its location across from Catacombs entrance, which I believe is a much better location. It's signage is also themed to the area's theme of skeletons.

You know what? The stand was closed at the time so I didn't actually get to see it. Are you saying it is just regular cotton candy on some kind of light-up stick? If so, I am disappointed. Was hoping the cotton candy itself "glowed.'" LOL

EDIT:
Pics of a GLOW stand in Italy and the sign for cotton candy in Germany (I think).

Hmmm...nice pics, really nice pics. Although the Italy Glow Booth is really dark you can't see much of the excellent theme that went into the signs. I thought I had a picture somewhere, oh well maybe this weekend I can get a comparison of pictures together to culminate all glow locations and their previous looks.

BTW, there is a glow stand in Oktoberfest. It is the saddest excuse for a stand. It is just two poles with lights on top, and what appears to be a display set on top of a picnic table. The major minus is there is no cash register. The park really failed with this one.

Pics to come this weekend, hopefully.

^Thanks. I will try and get some better pics this weekend as well. No cash register? How do they handle transactions? Oh, cash only.

In the meantime...BUBBLES!!
(from the same spot in Italy)

OK, before the lightning killed our evening, I managed to get around the park and capture these GLOW locations:

Heres a sad things about the Oktoberfest glow stand. The stand itself is actually from the Pompeii Gift shop, it is the water station where they would place water and other drinks inside "boxes" with ice. It's just decorated.

In full honesty, San Marco's and Aquitaine's are the best hands down. Now if only they can look this good during Illuminights.

**UPDATE**
I am sure people may know this, but I confirmed that "GLOW Cotton Candy" is indeed regular cotton candy on a light-up LED stick. :(
I has such high hopes.
