Castle Dreamlights debut at Magic Kingdom

| November 10, 2008

Tonight was the debut of the Castle Dreamlights at Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.  It also was the kickoff for the 2008 Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Parties.

The castle lighting ceremony starts with a cute performance with Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy. They are trying to decide how they should decorate the castle for the holidays.  They are arguing and can’t make up their minds.

Suddenly the Fairy Godmother appears up in the castle.  She suggests that they should ask Cinderella since it is her home.  The characters call for Cinderella.  Cinderella and Prince Charming appear on the stage.  Cinderella thinks about how she would like the castle.  She tells the crowd she would like the castle to glisten like her glass slipper.

The Fairy Godmother leads the crowd in chanting Bibbity Bobbity Boo. The castle starts to glisten like it is covered in ice.  Cinderella’s dream came true.

I have seen the ceremony and the castle changing colors many times and I still get goosebumps watching it.  It truly is beautiful.  They do this every night leading up to Christmas.  It is done while the park is still open so you don’t need the extra Christmas party ticket to see it.

If you are here for the holidays put this on your must see list!

    Another great blog Kathy. These castle lights look fantastic. I watched the video the DIS put up last year with my girls. They were in awe just watching the video. I’d love to see this sometime.

    Thank you, I can’t wait to see the castle with all it’s pretty lights for myself! We visited Disneyland Paris last November and they did this, and I really wanted it for our Magic Kingdom. So beautiful!

    Thanks Kathy. Great stuff. So what is the exact time of Cinderella’s Holiday Wish and the Dream Lights? I’ve seen 5:45, 6:00, and today someone posted 6:30? Is there a set time? Thanks.

  • Kathy Werling

    I had seen 5:45 was the time so we arrived in plenty of time. They didn’t come on until 6:30 so I am not sure what the correct time is. I’ll keep looking for the time.

    Kathy and all others

    I was told by a CM that the time for the show is 6:30 this week. (It may change on days when there is no Mikey Xmas party)

    I was there on Tuesday…it was so pretty…made my day
