Cinderella Castle Dream Lights Installation at Disney World


Well that time of year has arrived again ladies and gentlemen!! I love the holidays and I love Disney World so the 2 together are a win- win for me. While the Holidays are Magical at Walt Disney World the time leading up to them sometimes aren’t so…

Like the picture above, the famous Magic Kingdom crane will be making an appearance by Cinderella Castle which could only mean one thing, it’s time for the holiday Dream Lights to go up. Dream Lights consist of 200,000 LED lights, that drape over Cinderella Castle.

The installation will run from Sept 16 to Sept 30, 2013. If you get to the park early enough before the crew starts working you can sometimes get a crane free shot. Chip unfortunately isn’t so lucky.

Good Luck.

Wishing you Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust

    One trick is to walk around close to the Castle and shoot up, You’ll get some very cool, “not the same photo everyone has”, shots !

    Well, it can’t be any worse than seeing the Cake Castle on your very first trip to Disney World! LOL

  3. The crane “photo bombed” our pictures in January trip one year. :)
