I keep hearing things about the Goodbye Kiss. I have pretty much done everything at MK, but never this. Heading down in 19 days, and think I want to do this. I have heard conflicting things. Is it in front of the castle, or at the Main Entrance?

It is the castle. It will light up, change colors a bit, music comes on over the PA and a little monologue is read about Walt Disney. Sometimes they do it more than once a night but that's usually during peak times.

It's actually called the "Kiss Goodnight". :)

It's a small(er) light show *on* the Castle, along with the "Thank You for coming" announcement(s). You'll be able to see/hear it from anywhere along Main Street, USA :thumbsup: We're usually somewhere near Casey's/Ice Cream Parlor winding down for the night before heading out of the park.

We always sit on the benches around the hub to wait for the crowds and have watched this a few times. Kind of special because nobody is around and you feel like it's your own private show.

Enjoy....

The first time we saw it, it was just a fluke since we were hanging around waiting for crowds to clear.

It is kinda neat, the castle changes colour and there is a recorded message. Sometimes though, we feel like it is saying "you've had fun, now get out and go home". ;)

...and *only* at MK.

EPCOT has their "Inferno barge burn-off" about an hour after the park closes.

Weve never seen that. Will give that a look on next trip. Is it still ok to linger in world showcase after closing time?

I have always wanted to be one of the very last people to leave MK one night.

The first time we saw the Kiss Goodnight we were eating at Ohana's and had a view of the castle. It was neat to watch the colors change. We didn't know then that there was the thank you announcement or that the lights had a name.

Another trip we were relaxing at Casey's after the fireworks while the crowds left and got to hear the announcement as well.

Another cool thing about WDW that isn't a ride. :D
