Castle Dream Lights not on Cinderella Castle
Cinderella Castle Dream Lights will not be happening at the Magic Kingdom this holiday season. Instead, a series of holiday projections will cover the Cinderella Castle in the evening and already it has been a hit! “When night falls, special projection effects will give a festive look to Cinderella Castle this year, providing a colorful backdrop for our guests’ photos. The appearance of the iconic castle will be transformed with a rotating series of designs including a whimsical Christmas sweater and a regal overlay of red, green, and gold ornamentation. This will be in place of the Castle Dream Lights.”
