Now on its third year, Nuvali’s holiday light and sound spectacle has been titled “Reimagine the Magic: A Festival of Lights.” Visitors will enjoy well-loved Disney soundtracks such as “When You Wish Upon a Star,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and “Let It Go” in orchestral renditions arranged by the seasoned composer and former musical director of Hong Kong Disneyland, Mr. Rony Fortich.
The medley is complemented by the spectacular lighting effects, a field of 5,000 LED bulbs light up like an enchanted field of tulips, once again by Mr. Voltaire de Jesus and Ian Bautista who has worked on previous light shows.
Aside from the musical of laser lights, the crowd favorite 50-meter light tunnel makes a return. Guests will also be enchanted by a number of Disney installations.
For the first time, guests can also enjoy the “Festival of Lights” while supporting a cause. The show will have a fundraising event for the Hero Foundation which supports the families of fallen soldiers. Part of the P50.00 will be donated to the foundation: As a way of thanking donors, each donation will include a fast past access to the show, a spot in the bleacher seats and Disney-themed bottled water. Interested guests may register and pay online or inside the venue itself.
“We’ve had guests coming from Metro Manila and from neighboring provinces such as Batangas, Cavite and Laguna. Our intent is to bring Ayala Land’s Christmas tradition to the communities south of Metro Manila.” said John Estacio, Nuvali General Manager. He adds that aside from spreading the yuletide cheer this season, the show emphasizes the natural beauty of Nuvali by deriving inspiration from nature as seen with the tulips and Anahaw-like light installations. The estate’s open spaces and cool holiday breeze also encourages the community to spend more time outdoors.

The Solenad Christmas Bazaar, featuring food and holiday gift items will run every weekend until January 6, 2019 and the Dirtweekend Fun Ride on December 15. Families may also opt to spend the weekend in Nuvali by staying in Seda Hotel.
