From Friday, November 13, through Sunday, January 3, Night of a Million Lights will transform Give Kids The World's whimsical storybook Village into a dazzling winter wonderland. More than three million glittering lights will immerse guests in a festive kaleidoscope of sights and sounds, including a shimmering 150-foot tunnel leading to 45 exquisitely decorated wish family residential villas; more than 50 larger-than-life holiday-themed wireframe displays; an enchanting, incandescent gingerbread arch; and out-of-this-world space-themed decor adorning the Village's delectable new centerpiece, Henri's Starlite Scoops.
Admission for guests of all ages includes complimentary ice cream and hot cocoa, as well as unlimited access to the Village's wheelchair-accessible rides and attractions, lavishly decked out for the holidays. Additional food and beverages, as well as special edition holiday merchandise – including 3D glasses that will bring every magnificent bulb to life – will be available for purchase. An appearance by Santa and other special surprises will make this Central Florida's most beloved new holiday tradition!
Night of a Million Lights will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily, with staggered entry times to promote social distancing. Mask wearing will be required for all guests.
