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.

Proceeds from the event will go directly towards supporting Give Kids The World Villages’ mission and will support the organization when it reopens it doors for wish kids bigger and better than before.
