    coming to WDW in december 9-15, what time is the castle lighting? is the castle lighting ceremony only done during MVMCP or is it during regular park hours? thanks for all of the great info!

    Hi Natalie,

    You'll be pleased to know that the Castle lighting ceremony is held everyday during the holiday season not just on party days. The time does vary but it tends to occur about 5.45pm, you can find out the exact time listed on the Times Guide which can be found next to the park maps near the entrance to the Magic Kingdom. It really is a magical thing to watch as the castle gets lit up section by section, such a pretty sight!

    Have a fantastic trip,
