  • [Question] Small World Lighting Moment

    Hi, everyone. I was at the Park last night waiting for A Christmas Fantasy Parade in Fantasyland but was puzzled to see Small World in the dark from dusk until 5:15. When I was there four years ago, the lighting moment occured sometime before 5:00 p.m but last night it was delayed. Does anyone know about the delay?

      Don't know for sure, but it could be a couple of things. They may have been on set timers before and they now use photocells. Or, wonder how much those things cost to run? Shave off 3 to 4 hours per week could save thousands.
      Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

        Thanks for the insight. I always assumed by a timer tied into the Parks Audioo system.

            It's been scheduled to occur at 5:15. When I was there on Sunday, waiting for the parade, if I remember correctly, the lights went off after the 5pm clock and projection show and stayed off until the "lighting ceremony"(announcement) at 5:15. I believe the way it has been scheduled, the Main Street tree lighting happens at 5pm, then, Small World at 5:15. Since the parade time was moved up to 5:30 from 6:30, now, the first Castle lighting/Snow Moment has been happening at 6:30, with the second one at 7:30. At least that's what happened on Sunday. My guess is they have spread out the timing of the "lighting moments" so that guests can catch each of them if they wish. (Except that the times aren't in the printed entertainment guide. I got the times from an app I have on my iPod.)
