Christmas Light-Up : Orchard Road
November 10, 2018 - January 1, 2019
The lights are up, the season has come, Disney is in town and Christmas will soon be here !
Said to be Disney’s largest Christmas street light-up in Southeast Asia, this year’s light-up, from Tanglin Mall to Plaza Singapura is all things Disney.
This stretch has been divided into 4 zones, each given over to a Disney theme – Disney Princess (Little Mermaid and others), Mickey Mouse & Friends (Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy Duck), Frozen (Anna, Elsa) and Toy Story (Buzz Lightyear, Woody) et al.
Each zone has its own colours and embellishments – glass slippers from Cinderella, the apple from Snow White, Mickey’s gloves and signature head, snowflakes … apart from hanging lights and numerous featured set pieces for photo-ops.
All this, in addition to pop-up stores, light-ups, set-ups and celebrations outside individual malls and buildings, have created about 2.8 km of magic and fantasy, perfect to set the mood for the coming festive season and provide hours of selfie opportunities, strolling, exploring, gazing, eating … and of course, shopping.
Outside Ngee Ann City is a Christmas Village offering food and drink, amusement rides and nightly live performances.
Sundays through Thursdays : 6.30 p.m. to 12.00 a.m.
Fridays & Saturdays : 6.30 p.m. to 2.00 a.m.
Christmas Eve & New Year’s Eve : 6.30 p.m. to 6.00 a.m.
