The 2018 Cinderella Castle Dream Lights will be turned on tonight, November 8, 2018 and Disney Parks Blog will be live streaming it!
It’s also the first night of the 2018 Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party celebration.
It’s Christmastime at the Magic Kingdom!!!
Disney decorates Cinderella Castle for the holiday season with a “Dream Lights” effect that makes the Castle look covered in ice.
Over 350,000 LED lights are draped over the turrets and roofs and down the sides of the Castle to create this beautiful effect. It takes over 7 weeks to hang all the lights!
We’ve gotten to see the Cinderella Castle Dream Lights being turned on many times for the past several years. It’s beautiful each and every time!
The Dream Lights will stay lit until after the Disney Marathon Weekend happening January 9 – 13, 2019.
Just after dark at around 6pm, the characters from ‘Frozen’ come out on the Castle Stage and do a short show called “A Frozen Holiday Wish”. The castle lighting show stars Queen Elsa (who turns on the Dream Lights with her magical, icy powers), Princess Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf the snowman.
The Frozen show starts the evening’s celebrations, followed by the Castle’s lighting ceremony at 6:15 pm. The Castle’s Dream Lights remain on, with the Castle slowly changing colors from pink to green to blue to purple, for the rest of the evening until one hour after park closing.
Lions and Tigers and Strollers, Oh My!
This is not Caroline’s first time in the Disney College Program. Along with her sister, she was previously accepted into the program a few years earlier. Back in Colorado, Caroline was wishing for a little more pixie dust to brighten up her life. On a whim, she decides to apply to the exclusive Disney Alumni Summer Program.
Now that she’s back, things get wild.
Wild, as in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where Caroline is assigned to work in Stroller Rental. While not the most glamorous position in the park, it’s often ground zero for humanity at its best and at its worst.
While Caroline makes many “Magical Moments” for deserving guests whose pixie dust has gone temporarily sideways, she also receives magical moments of her own through the friendships she makes, going to Disney cast member exclusive events, and all the spectacular dining opportunities at Disney World.
Caroline tells all – from the ins and outs of Disney’s secret training class called Traditions; to learning how to be a happy cast member during on-the-job training; to what it’s like to interact with fellow cast members and the guests who are ready to explore the most magical place on earth.
Join Caroline as she takes you on a wild ride through her adventures in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But be careful, it’s a jungle out there!
