    It's a special light show on the Castle, with music and a "thanks for coming" message, that takes place after the park has closed. Very short, and happens about a half hour after the closing time, and again every half hour for up to 2 hours. You can find the schedule here: Walt Disney World Live Entertainment under Magic Kingdom, scroll down to fireworks and parades. It doesn't happen every night, at least according to his schedule.

    Search YouTube for "Kiss Goodnight Disney" and you'll find a bunch of videos of it.

    Unfortunately I cannot do Youtube because of my internet connection. It would take forever for a video to download and then be very choppy.

    But why do they do it after the park has closed, If the park is closed who would get to see it?
    and I guess if you can see the castle from your resort from far away, I wouldn’t think you’d be able to “Hear” a message of thanks for coming”

    Just wondering.....

    I have been way back in Toontown when the park closed before. It takes a long time for some of us to finally make our way out of the park so I am guessing that is why they do it, to entertain us as we file our way past.

    It takes time to clear the park - in fact, the shops on Main Street stay open sometimes as much as an hour after "closing".

    I see, I did not know that, because I read somewhere that its been done around midnight, and I always thought the park closed long before that.

    Thanks for the answers.

    Attractions are closed, but the hub and Main St are still populated. The show hours change according to park hours. It is basically a show to close the park - much like opening shows. Note the audio is only heard in the hub.
