Mouzing Around Castle Dreamlights at the Magic Kingdom

Castle Dreamlights at Disney's Magic Kingdom

Castle Dreamlights at the Magic Kingdom

Every photo has a story.

One of the newest traditions at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World is not the lighting of the Main Street Christmas tree, but the lighting of  ”Castle Dreamlights,” the light display covering Cinderella Castle.   The numbers are nearly as high as the park attendance.  Disney  lighting designers use 200,000 sparkling LED lights, 500  strobes, 15 miles of cable, and 32,000 square  feet of fishing net to create Castle Dreamlights. Back in 2007, Walt Disney  World started this new holiday tradition where Cinderella Castle  changes color in synchronization with the music of “Holiday Wishes.”  In  this case, a picture is worth thousands of lights.

Picture this…it takes 150 trips  for WDW tractor-trailers to deliver fully loaded truckloads of decorations to 24 resorts, 4 theme parks, Downtown Disney, and other locations.   1,314 wreaths are hung with care, accentuated by 15 miles of garland. 300,000 yards of ribbon and bows are draped over 1,300  Christmas trees spread across the WDW property.  8.5 million lights are strung up throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.  That’s a lot of sparkling  photo opportunities!

While you’re on your way to claim a seat for the Castle Dreamlights  show, stop in at Casey’s Corner, located on the corner of the west side  of Main Street.  Grab a cold drink, a hot dog, some fries, and walk  over for some Dreamlight fun.

Thanks for stopping by for a photographical Disney ride!
