Running nightly now through January 1, Christmas Nights in Lights is an immersive, drive-thru attraction located at Dezerland Orlando. Featuring beautiful light displays, holiday figures, synchronized music, and a variety of festive landscapes; Christmas Nights in Lights encompasses over a mile of family-friendly fun!
We were absolutely thrilled to be invited to experience this brand new, Orlando attraction, and I can’t wait to tell you all about this awesome holiday celebration. Thank you, Christmas Nights in Lights and Dezerland Orlando, for having us out!
Christmas Nights in Lights Drive-Thru
With 1.5 million sparking lights and a private, personalized music station, Christmas Nights in Lights is essentially a massive, immersive, and impressively synchronized dancing light show. The entire driving path is filled with holiday imagery like Christmas Trees, Nutcracker characters, Nativity scenes, Santa Claus, elves, and more. The attraction also features striking effects like tunnels filled with colorful lights and characters with coordinated lip movements that appear to sing with the music.
Not only is this attraction filled with a large variety of festive fun – it is LONG! It took us around thirty minutes to complete the whole trail, however, your experience may vary with guest traffic and your individual driving pace.
My favorite part of Christmas Nights in Lights were the “dancing” trees (check them out in the Instagram reel below). Using symbols and pictures, these trees celebrated classic holiday songs in a whole new way!
Wow! Christmas Nights in Lights is an incredible addition Orlando’s holiday attractions, and I ADORED every minute of my journey through this mesmerizing winter wonderland. The variety of scenery, colorful lightscapes, and festive music were a delight for my whole family, and I really hope this attraction returns in future years!
Dezerland Christmas Village
After completing the drive-thru attraction, head inside Dezerland Action Park to visit a festive Christmas Village! Within this holiday-themed experience you’ll find winter treats (like hot cocoa and warm apple cider) as well as unique activities. For example, on Saturday evenings kids can visit Dezerland’s gaming areas and compete against Santa Claus himself on classic pinball machines and modern video consoles.
And don’t miss an unprecedented interpretation of Santa’s sleigh – designed as only Dezerland can do it! Starting with an antique Volkswagen, this display uses a variety of micro-vehicles from Dezerland’s signature Auto Museum.
