The most wonderful time of the year simply just isn’t without an abundance of lights to add to the festive cheer. Singapore has some of the best and this year, for the first time ever, you’ll be able to catch Mickey, Minnie and other familiar faces from Disney as Orchard Road undergoes a spectacular transformation.
Visitors to the iconic street will be welcomed by various Disney characters set upon a glittering main arch – the stunning centrepiece in a dazzling show of lights. They’ll then have the option of moving through four different themed zones: Disney Princess (Tanglin Mall to Shaw House), Mickey Mouse & Friends (ION Orchard to Mandarin Gallery), Frozen ([email protected] to Orchard Central) and Toy Story (Orchard Central to Plaza Singapura).
Spanning 2.8km, ‘Disney Magical Moments’ promises to be a feast for the eyes and a treat for the whole family. There’ll be Instagram-moments galore as life-size set pieces offer the chance for fans to snap a pic with their favourite characters.
As part of Christmas On A Great Street celebrations, revellers can also look forward to exploring the Great Christmas Village at Ngee Ann Civic Plaza for a second year running. With activities for all ages, there’s no shortage of fun and games here. There’ll be a fun variety of amusement rides and a duplex carousel (which can also accommodate those in wheelchairs).
For kiddies wanting to meet Santa, they’ll get the chance at Santa’s House where they’ll also be able to participate in arts and craft activities for free. The village will be available from 15 to 26 December 2018, so don’t hesitate to make your way there!
This is a celebration which truly is for everybody. And if, after all those fun and games you’re ready for a pit stop, there will be food kiosks, a craft beer bar and nightly performances to add to an atmosphere of yuletide cheer. Wander amongst different pop-up stores while you sup – Uniqlo, Häagen-Dazs, OWNDAYS and OPPO will all make an appearance and will have an array of experiential shopping experiences for those who are still looking to fill their stockings.
This year marks Christmas On A Great Street’s 28th consecutive year and will be Disney’s largest Christmas street light-up in Southeast Asia. So don’t miss out on a chance to celebrate Christmas with Mickey, Minnie and your favourite Disney characters. Visit Orchard Road between 10 November 2018 and 1 January 2019 for your most magical Disney Christmas yet.
