    I see the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party begins on Nov. 9. Will that be the first night the Castle Christmas Lights will be turned on? Will they be on every night after that until Christmas or just on the party nights?

    Hi there, Janice!

    The Castle Dream Lights were lit in 2011 on Friday, November 04. This year, it is likely they will be lit some time between November 2nd and 5th.

    They will most certainly be used for the first run of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party on November 9, but historically, they are turned on a few days in advance of the party. You might want to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for a start-date announcement.

    They will be lit every night thereafter, and you do not need a party ticket to see performances of Cinderella's Holiday Wish in front of her Castle.

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
