Here is something I truly believe, in 2020 we need Holiday cheer more than EVER! Yesterday I got invited to preview the newest Central Florida Holiday event; the Give Kids The World Nights of a Million Lights.
Let me tell you, this GKTW event will be a Central Florida’s MUST-VISIT Holiday Experience.
Here are things to know before you visit:
A NIGHT OF A MILLION LIGHTS EVENT DATES AND HOURS
Hours: 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Entry times will be staggered to promote social distancing, and masks will be required for all guests.
GKTW VILLAGE ADDRESS
It is very easy to get there! GKTW is near the Medieval Times and about 20 minutes from Disney.
210 South Bass Rd
WHAT IS A NIGHT OF A MILLION LIGHTS
Guests who visit will find more than three million glittering lights, sights and sounds, including a shimmering 150-foot tunnel leading to 45 decorated villas.
You will also find a TON of picture opportunities, as well as Santa himself spreading his holiday cheer.
45 THEMED VILLAS
Each of GKTW Villas was adopted by a partner who will be responsible for the house’s decorations. Because of that, each of their homes will have a unique holiday personality.
Give Kids the World is extremely respected within our community. Some of the companies partnering with GKTW for this event are Legoland, PGA Tour, Crayola Experience, and Sea World.
Not all the villas are ready just yet, as I visited during a preview, but it was already hard to choose my favorite villa! I can’t even imagined once everything is ready.
From a bright pink villa with a flamingo in the front yard, representing our very own “Pink Flamingo,” the Don Cesar hotel, to Legoland’s perfect photo opportunity wrath made of LEGOS (of course), and anything in between.
A NIGHT OF A MILLION LIGHTS TICKETS AND PRICE
There are three different ticket tiers:
Standard Nights: $25 (Adults) – $15 (Kids)
Peak Nights: $35 (Adults) – $18 (Kids)
Holiday Nights: $40 (Adults) – $20 (Kids).
Most nights are considered Standard Nights, and you will even find weekend availability in this category!
Admission includes complimentary ice cream and hot cocoa, as well as unlimited access to the Village’s wheelchair-accessible rides and attractions.
Additional food and beverages, as well as special edition holiday merchandise – including 3D glasses that will bring every magnificent bulb to life – will be available for purchase.
THE NUMBER ONE REASON TO VISIT
Each family receives transportation, accommodations, meals and snacks, nightly entertainment, tickets to Orlando’s world-class theme parks and attractions, and priceless interactive experiences at the Village.
Since 1986, Give Kids The World has welcomed more than 176,000 families from 50 states and more than 76 countries.
Give Kids The World Village closed to wish families in mid-March due to the global pandemic, delaying more than 4,000 wishes.
The Night of a Million Lights is designed to raise funds to ensure that the wishes of critically ill children can return bigger and better than ever before once the Village reopens.
GKTW Lights display is a feel-good and do-good experience that I HIGHLY recommend you to add to your holiday list.
