Can someone tell me how long Disney keeps the Magic Kingdom castle holiday lights on? Thinking of going January 1st, but would love to still be able to see the castle lit up.

They are up until Marathon weekend pretty much (which is the weekend after new years).

Matt, is that the same with all the parks and include Epcot and the Holiday (Santa) stories and the Osborne Lights? I'm also wondering about the Citizens of Hollywood and the Christmas skits they do.

I guess I want the best of both worlds. Less crowds but still have the holiday feel.

While my husband was away on active duty, my son and I went to Disney for Christmas. Great Christmas (not for my husband, in hot hot Kuwait), but Lowell and I had a great time. We went last year, but because my husband doesn't like going we made sure we were back by Christmas Eve. Lowell's college term doesn't end until the 22nd, this year, so we don't have enough time go before Christmas and I've heard that the crowds are crazy between Christmas and New Years and I do know the resort charge top dollar during that time too. That's why I'm thinking of arriving on New Years day. Oppps, sorry about the long story.

Epcot's Holidays Around the World is 11/25 to 12/29
Candlelight Processional is 11/25 to 12/30
Osborne Lights 11/10 to 01/03
for some reason I can't find the Castle Lights time but I'm sure they'll be up until 01/03 but I could be wrong on this one

Great information. Makes me think I should try and go before New Years, but fear that could be a mistake.

Also, something else to keep in mind for holiday travel... Last year at MK they did the whole New Year's Eve party on 12/30 as well as 12/31. They had a DJ in front of the castle special NYE fireworks and some other stuff. We went 12/30 and, while it was crowded, not nearly as bad as I've heard NYE is. We really enjoyed it last year! If they do that again this year, we will attend again! That way, you could also experience NYE at MK and then join the Studios Central crew for NYE at the Studios!

I just checked the schedule for MK for Dec 2011 and it looks like they're doing the NYE celebration on both the 30th & 31st again this year!

Park hours 9 - midnight
EMH 12/30 8 - 9 am and midnight - 3am, EMH 12/31 8 - 9 am

Both days:
Main Street Electrical Parade @ 7 pm
Wishes @ 8:30 pm
Fantasy in the Sky @ 11:50 pm

TWO different fireworks in ONE park on ONE night!!! Doesn't get much better than that!!!!
