The Holiday Season begins in a little over a week and a half at Walt Disney World! (Wait…what?!) One of the most incredible aspects of Disney’s holiday festivities is the Cinderella Castle holiday lighting show at the Magic Kingdom, which this year will see a change.
For the festive season, Cinderella Castle lights up each evening with more than 200,000 white shimmering lights, causing the castle to appear as though it has been frosted over. The effect is simply stunning, and photos do not do it justice. Prior to this year, Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother performed the magic to make the castle shimmer.
However, in 2014 a brand new version of the show features a Frozen twist: “A Frozen Holiday Wish” will debut on November 5. The new show will feature Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and even Olaf; it will end with the traditional castle lighting ceremony, this time with Elsa turning the palace into an icy wonderland.
“A Frozen Holiday Wish” will take place nightly until December 31.
In addition, as a reminder for those who are fans of Frozen and would like to see Olaf, Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff, you’ll be able to do so by watching “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime” Parade, which is performed during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (a separately ticketed party that takes place select nights from November 7 through December 19 in 2014), as well as during normal park hours from December 20-31.
It definitely appears that this year is going to be a very Frozen Christmas at the Magic Kingdom!
