After donating $ 3 million in grants to local nonprofits as part of the 50th birthday celebration, we are now ready for the holidays alongside the central florida community. To celebrate the season, Disney will once again help illuminate Give Kids The World Village for its second annual Night of a Million Lights holiday event, which will take place from November 12 to January 2, 2022.
Created with millions of bright lights donated by Disney, Night of a Million Lights transforms Give Kids The World’s whimsical Village storybook into a dazzling winter wonderland, immersing visitors in a fairytale-decorated neighborhood with a show of 360-degree dance lights, a trail of bright trees, a guided tour of tales of 100 villas decorated with bright colors and more.
This year, Disney’s talented Holiday Services team helped decorate the town with true Disney fashion, paying homage to a beloved attraction that celebrates cultures around the world: “it’s a small world”.
“Give Kids The World Village is a special place not only for the children and families who visit it, but also for our cast members,” said Tajiana Ancora-Brown, Director of External Affairs at Walt Disney World Resort. “As one of the leading non-profit organizations where our Disney VoluntEARS spend their time, it warms my heart to see so many of our casters continue to enthusiastically spread Disney magic throughout the town this holiday season.”

Proceeds from the event will help make the magical wishes of critical children and their families around the world come true.
