With fall just around the corner, it is hard not to set your sights on the cheery winter season that follows. Before we know it, wreaths will be hung, lights will be strung, and music will be in the air. During this time, the Orlando area boasts a special kind of magic that can only be found here. With plenty of local events and holiday cheer to go around, we wanted to highlight one that is lighting the skies of Kissimmee – all for a good cause!

Beginning November 12, 2021 and running for fifty two nights, Give Kids The World Village presents its Night of a Million Lights. Night of a Million Lights is a one-of-a-kind, immersive holiday spectacular that transforms the Give Kids The World Village. Named by USA Today as the “Number One Thing To Do In December in Orlando”, this event is not one you want to miss. Visitors will get to view a dancing lightshow in a fairytale neighborhood and take a walk through millions of lights on display – including a sparkling tree trail! If you’d prefer, there is even a storytelling tour of one hundred lit villas that can be heard from the comfort of a tram! Enjoy plenty of festive holiday music and treats to get everyone in the spirit and even shop around at a holiday marketplace. Be on the lookout for Santa to make an appearance during your visit!
The event will run from November 12, 2021 through January 2, 2022. It is recommended to purchase tickets in advance, as last year sold out quickly. There are multiple ticket options including holiday nights, VIP and even a dessert tour option! Every dollar from ticket purchases, merchandise and food and beverage sold will go to Give Kids The World’s mission and allow them to help even more families for the years to come.
