Dad’s they are so cool Answer


The icicle lights on Cinderella Castle are so cool. They change colors. They look cold, they look hot, they look angry, they look serene. They are just about perfect.


The lights are on every night during the Christmas season. They are part of the great Christmas at Disney World decorations that go up every year.

Yes, they are on for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, but they are also on during the normal nights. Here are some of the things that happen at the Christmas Party that you won’t see on regular nights Holiday Wishes, Snow on Main Street, Cocoa and Cookies, the Christmas parade (usually shown the week of Christmas).

Dad’s Bottom Line


Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is nice in that you see a couple of things you won’t see any other time (snow on Main Street and Holiday Wishes), but the best part is the smaller crowds (and the cocoa and cookies).


Even if you don’t go to the Christmas Party, if you go during the Christmas season, you’ll see the icicle lights on Cinderella Castle.
