    Hi one of the most lasting memories of my trip to Disney World in 2019 was catching the surprise "Kiss Goodnight" show at the Cinderella Castle after closing time at Magic Kingdom. Are there any plans to bring this magical show back? Thanks

    Welcome to planDisney, Richard, and thank you for stopping by with this great question. My family remembers the Kiss Goodnight and awaits its return. Let's do some digging to see what we can discover about this elusive treat at Walt Disney World Resort.

    The Kiss Goodnight has always been somewhat sporadic, and guests have viewed it as a pixie-dusted moment when it does happen. It rarely occurs on the nights of special-ticketed events like Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, and it has been less evident since the pandemic. But this two-minute show, which lights up Cinderella Castle and bids guests a fond farewell after Magic Kingdom Park closes, is undoubtedly a practically perfect way to end your day. 

    I spoke to a helpful Cast Member named Joanna Lynn, who did some research and told me that the Kiss Goodnight show is still as unpredictable as ever. It's never listed in the show times, so it's a special surprise when guests can catch it. I like to think of it as a rare treat when it happens, but I never get my hopes up. I know that's not the answer you were wishing for, but you never know what could happen with that Disney magic. Keep believing!

    Richard, I'm sending pixie dust and holiday snowflakes for your upcoming visit in December. Please stop by planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
