The Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort will be lighting up the night sky in a festive display for the Holiday Season!
Holiday time at the Walt Disney World resort is arriving sooner than guests might realize. The resort just announced that their festivities will begin on November 6th and run through December 30th. This is a slightly different run time for the magic of the season that guests are used to. Typically the holidays at the Walt Disney World Resort run through the beginning of the following year. However, in the midst of a global pandemic, any form of Disney holiday magic will be worth the wait!
One thing that is sure to remain, is the magical sight of the beautiful Cinderella Castle. The resort had this to say about what to expect during the holidays when it comes to this Disney staple:
When night falls, special projection effects will give a festive look to Cinderella Castle this year, providing a colorful backdrop for our guests’ photos. The appearance of the iconic castle will be transformed with a rotating series of designs including a whimsical Christmas sweater and a regal overlay of red, green and gold ornamentation. This will be in place of the Castle Dream Lights. Other holiday experiences that draw big crowds will be on hiatus this year as well, such as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Candlelight Processional at EPCOT. We know these experiences are a cherished part of holiday traditions that will be missed by guests and cast members alike, but we’re glad to be able to bring holiday magic in other creative ways.
Although not all holiday experiences from previous years will carry over into this year’s celebration, it is quite comforting to know that not all holiday magic is lost. Guests are sure to enjoy the magic of the holidays at the Walt Disney World Resort as it is navigated through these difficult times!
