Give Kids The World Village Announces Night of a Million Lights Holiday Spectacular
For the first time, Give Kids The World Village will be opening its doors to the public to showcase the magic and whimsy of the non-profit resort through a fully immersive walk through holiday light spectacular.
Give Kids the World Village is an 84-acre, nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides weeklong, cost-free vacations to children with critical illnesses and their families. The village has been closed to wish families since mid-March due to COVID-19.
The event will run from Friday, November 13 through Sunday, January 3, 2021. Night of a Million Lights will adorn the 84-acre resort with an incredible light display.
The display includes a 150-foot lighted tunnel along the Avenue of Angels leading to elaborately decorated wish family residential villas. There will be more than 50 larger-than-life holiday-themed wireframes, some spanning more than 40 feet. An enormous dancing gingerbread arch and out-of-this-world space-themed decorations showcasing Henri’s Starlite Scoops will illuminate the resort.
A group of corporate partners will showcase their design talents by adopting and decorating a residential villa for display throughout the 52 nights of the event.
Tickets are on sale starting October 1 at www.gktw.org/lights. Guest are able to walk among the brilliant lights and participate in a variety of fun and festive activities in a safe, socially distant manner.
Ticket prices start at $15 for children ages 3-17 and $25 for adults. Included in the ticket price is on-site parking, complimentary ice cream and hot cocoa, and unlimited access to the Village’s wheelchair-accessible attractions – including The Enchanted Carousel; Marc’s Dino Putt; Kelly’s Sunny Swing; Lori’s Magical Flight; an interactive model railroad; and the Village’s iconic Castle of Miracles, where thousands of stars fill the ceiling in honor of wish children who have visited the Village.
The event will run from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily, with staggered entry times at 5:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m., and 8:00 p.m. (confirmed at the time of purchase) to ensure social distancing. Mask wearing will also be required for all guests.
