Castle Dream Lights lighting show question

This year will be our 6th consecutive Christmas in Disney, so we generally know what we are doing. However, this year MVMCP is ending later than usual. We normally arrive on or after the last party, and we don't attend because we stay past Christmas Day and thus can see the parade/fireworks for free after the parties end.

One thing I love to see is the show where they light the Dream lights. Does anyone know if the show is done prior to 7:00 on party nights? Typically in late December the lights go on around 5:45, so I'm thinking yes. This would be for the last couple party nights, the 20th and 21st of December. We are hoping to see the lighting show, then leave at or before 7. Thanks!

Castle lighting usually takes place around 6:15.

Yes, Castle Lighting is done during regular park hours, not during the party. Usually around 5:45-6:00, so you can see it if you aren't staying for the MVMCP.

My own thought is that they do it at 6:15 to encourage guests toward the front of the park 45 minutes prior to closing on party nights so they just decide to head on out.
