Come November, Disney fans are in for an absolute treat! From 10 November 2018 to 1 January 2019, the annual Orchard Road Christmas Light-Up 2018 will return as one of Singapore’s main year-end celebration highlights. To usher in the festivities for locals and visitors, Orchard Road Business Association has partnered up with The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia (Disney) in Southeast Asia’s first-ever Disney-themed Christmas street light-up! If you were impressed by the Orchard Road Christmas Light-ups in the previous years, wait till you see the 2.88km stretch of Orchard Road transformed into a scene out of a Disney movie in November…
The iconic shopping belt of Orchard Road will be divided into four distinct zones and lined with a dazzling display of lights, with trees decorated with illuminated 3D Mickey Mouse icons. What’s more, each zone will be lavishly decorated with a different Disney theme: Disney Princess (Tanglin Mall to Shaw House), Mickey Mouse & Friends (ION Orchard to Mandarin Gallery), Frozen (313@somerset to Orchard Central), and Toy Story (Orchard Central to Plaza Singapura).

The brilliant display of lights and well-loved Disney characters will surely enchant both the young and young at heart! Additionally, visitors will also be treated to Instagram-worthy photo opportunities of life-sized set pieces of their favourite Disney characters, including Mickey Mouse, Elsa and many more.
That’s not all! Launched last year, the Great Christmas Village, will return this Christmas for an even longer run from 15 November to 26 December 2018 at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza. On top of that, the 2018 edition will feature an array of exciting activities suitable for all ages, including amusement rides and a duplex carousel that is suitable for wheelchair riders too! Hitachi, the main sponsor of the Orchard Road Christmas Light-Up, will set up a lovely and cosy Santa House. Children can participate in arts and craft activities for free and even meet Santa Claus in person here! Dreams really do come true!
