Ahead of the holiday season, Disney is taking over a street in Singapore. The street has been lit up for Christmas every year since 1984, but this year popular Disney characters are adding extra festivities.

Starting November 11, Orchard Street will become the epicenter of holiday cheer. Underneath a halo of twinkling Christmas lights, Disney characters will parade up and down the 1.8-mile shopping belt, entertaining visitors of all ages.

Each building along the belt takes part in the fête. As you’re walking through, cast your vote for the “best-dressed” holiday building. Pop-up stores from Häagen-Dazs, SK-II and Uniqlo, among several others, will help you complete your holiday shopping without having to leave the festive spirit.

A holiday market, called the Endless Wonder Christmas Village, will have an array of activities for kids, including bouncy castles, live music and yuletide treats. Decorations will transform the street into a “Frozen” wonderland or a “Toy Story” jamboree.

Other attractions include a “snow room,” DIY workshops and several different themed photo booths.

Christmas Eve plans are particularly decadent this year. Dance the night away at a countdown party with holiday drinks on tap. The whole shebang ends in a firework display at midnight.

The event will last for six weeks, with lights on display through January 1.
