    We are going to WDW with our 1 year old grandson for Christmas. Is there a special ceremony for lighting Cinderalla's Castle with Christmas lights? Is it a nightly ceremony and what time does it start?

    Hi Randall!

    There is a special lighting ceremony for Cinderella Castle for the holidays.  It starts off with Cinderella's Holiday Wish, a short 5 minute show at the Castle Forecourt Stage.  It takes place around dusk, but you will want to check the exact time when you are there on the Times Guide.  Typically, however, based on past years, it happens around 6:00 or 6:15 that week.

    It's a fun show and the castle lights are fabulous!  It's definitely a "must do".

    Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation and write back if you have any more questions!
