Sleeping Beauty’s holiday decorations are lit!

The princess’s iconic castle at Disneyland has undergone a massive holiday makeover, outfitting the famous resort’s landmark in faux snow, twinkling lights and ornaments galore. Even better — you can watch the magical transformation for yourself, all in less than two minutes.

In a time lapse video posted to their Facebook page, the theme park showcases just how the holiday dream comes to life. The white-capped turrets are one of the most mystifying revelations, as they are simply placed over the existing ones to make application easy.

The towers’ twinkling lights also appear to be built into the temporary toppers, while strands of icicle lights are hung by hand. Strands of garland with colorful bulbs and an oversize wreath above the entrance serve as the décor’s fairytale finishing touches.

Besides the princess’s spirited digs, Disney’s seasonal specials also include Mater’s Jingle Jamboree in Cars Land, the World of Color – Season of Light show, visits from Santa, fireworks, a Fantasy Parade and more.

But if you can’t make it to the happiest place on Earth before January, you at least have the massive amounts of Instagrams and the above video to give you a boost of good cheer.
