VIDEO Cinderella’s Castle Dream Lights in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom

Walt Disney World certainly knows how to dress up for Christmas.  From the resorts to the theme parks you’ll find decorations from head to toe.  Some of the most beautiful decorations are found in the Magic Kingdom including the telling of Mickey’s Christmas Carol in the Emporium windows on Main Street U.S.A.  However, when the sun goes down, the magic truly happens, starting with the lighting of Cinderella’s Castle, transforming it into a glimmering ice palace.  And, in typical Disney fashion, you can’t just flick on the lights without a show… continue reading for full VIDEO of the Castle forecourt stage show and lighting of Cinderella Castle’s Dream Lights.

Cinderella's Castle Dream Lights

While many of the special evening holiday events at the Magic Kingdom including the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade and Holiday Wishes fireworks show are part of the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party separate ticketed event (click here for our VIDEOs from the party), Cinderella’s Castle Dream Lights are lit every evening for all guests to enjoy.

Each night, Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy come out on stage and marvel at the decorations on Main Street, but notice Cinderella’s Castle is lacking special treatment.  With a wave of Fairy Godmother’s wand, Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!, over 200,000 shimmering white lights create a dazzling display.  Check out the video below to see for yourself.

The Cinderella Castle Dream Lights show is certainly not to be missed if you’re in the Magic Kingdom for the holidays.  For more family travel news, reviews, and trip reports, be sure to follow Adventures by Daddy on twitter and “like” our facebook page too.

About John Saccheri

John Saccheri has been rooted in the Disney culture from childhood. John only had the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World once, at the age of 5. After returning home, he never stopped talking about it, yearning to return. His parents were worried about this “obsession,” but John began working at the age of 12 with a focus on saving up for the next Disney trip. He was able to visit Disney World at least once a year from 14 years old onward. Today, a successful entrepreneur, John was able to move from his hometown of Long Island, New York, to Central Florida to be close to the Mouse. Going to the parks still seems like a fantasy to him!
