    Will be in MK on Nov. 11 & 15. Would like to attend Castle Lighting Ceremony. Where is this held and what time should we be there?

    Hi Wyline,

    The Castle lighting ceremony takes place at around dusk each evening during the holiday season. There is a brief show on the stage directly in front of the Castle, followed by the lighting.

    The exact time of the lighting varies depending on what time it gets dark. In mid November, the show should be at about 6:30 p.m., but be sure to stop by the guest relations office when you get to the park to confirm the exact timing. Good viewing spots for the show are up front near the Castle, so arrive about 30 minutes in advance for this. But you can see the lights anywhere on on Main Street and you don't need to show up early for that.
