Tips for Fashion Island Tree Lighting:

-10,000 guests are expected to arrive for the Tree Lighting each night; another note to arrive early for parking.
The show will last 20 minutes and starts promptly at 6 p.m.
-Courtesy trams and shuttles will be operating throughout the evening to take guests to their parking spots.
A night to remember:
Mickey Mouse and his famous pals will again kick off the holiday season with yuletide cheer and holiday greetings from “The Merriest Place on Earth” with an exclusive tree lighting extravaganza at Fashion Island on November 14 and 15. Shoppers, families and friends will be invited to sing along to festive wintertime tunes as Fashion Island’s towering Christmas tree twinkles to life with a custom light display from Disneyland® Resort along with magical snowfall on both evenings.
In addition to the tree lighting ceremony, every night at 5:00pm from November 16 through January 4, 2015, enjoy the lighting of Fashion Island’s towering tree, Disney style, as it twinkles to life with custom Disney holiday music and glittering lights.
