Elsa and Anna Cinderella Castle Dream Lights not returning in 2022. Disney just dropped a whole lot of news regarding this Holiday Season at the Walt Disney World Resorts. Some fun returning events like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, and then some news about what is NOT returning this year.

On nights when Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is not held, Cinderella Castle transforms to take on a magical holiday look complete with special projection effects, festive colors, and a rotating series of designs including a whimsical Christmas sweater, a jeweled castle look, and more. 

Almost everywhere guests look they will be immersed in festive holiday decor at “The Most Magical Place on Earth.” Theme parks, resorts, and the Disney Springs dining, entertainment, and retail district are transformed into all that is merry and bright.

Decor highlights include:  

  • Jolly trimmings and theming throughout Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom Park.
  • Holiday glamour on Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and festive touches in Toy Story Land.
  • Animal-inspired décor, luminaries on Discovery Island, and holiday cheer that ex-pats from Earth have brought to Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  
  • Dazzling international decor around World Showcase at EPCOT.  
  • Nightly snow flurries and Disney-themed Christmas trees at Disney Springs.
  • Iconic Gingerbread displays and embellishments at Disney Resort Hotels.
  • And Christmas trees seemingly everywhere – more than 1300 at last count, some towering 65 feet.

Looks like Disney will not be returning the beloved “Frozen” Lights, which will make the second year they have not been put up. Last year Very Merriest After Hours was the first time since 2018 that the Cinderella Castle did not have a special light show or A Frozen Holiday Wish fan favorite Stage Show.
