MANILA, Philippines — The popular lights show in Ayala Malls, "Symphony of Lights," will be lit in more of its malls across the country in time for the holiday season. 

Mariana Zobel de Ayala, Executive Director of Ayala Corporation, revealed some of the Christmas offerings of Ayala Malls earlier this month. 

"Christmas this year for us at Ayala Malls is about giving your presence and unwrapping the present, pun intended. 

"With 2023 as a year of recovery, we're happy to welcome back our customers across generations to enjoy well-loved traditions at Ayala Malls. We know that for our customers, time is the ultimate commodity and holds the greatest value. 

"Therefore, we thought, for this year, it's apt to highlight how Ayala Malls has been a constant in the life of Filipinos and their families, friends and significant others because the moments that have been created in our spaces and the special memories that those moments have brought, recognize the value and importance of each of our time," the eighth-generation Zobel de Ayala said during the malls' Christmas offerings launch held in Glorietta Activity Center, Makati City.

Ayala Malls already kicked off its Holiday Trails, hop-on and hop-off experience last November 8, as well as tree lighting ceremonies across its malls that weekend. 

The anticipated light show, "Symphony of Lights," will be seen in several of their malls, including Ayala Center Cebu, Ayala Malls Capitol Central, Centrio, Abreeza, Fairview Terraces, Manila Bay and Vermosa. 

There will also be themed weekends throughout November and December and meet-and-greet sessions with Santa Claus. 

Zobel de Ayala shared she is most excited about one thing in their Christmas offerings.

"Personally, I'm really excited about the unveiling of a very new gift exchange concept. I love that it looks to pay forward all the wonderful fortunes we've received this year. Stay tuned for that," she said.

This holiday season, Ayala Malls, the premier lifestyle destination in the Metro, is turning dreams into reality, and wishes into unforgettable experiences.

Collaborating with Disney Animation Studios, Ayala Malls Cinemas hosts an invitational screening of "Wish," the latest musical-comedy from Walt Disney Animation Studios.

"Wish" tells the captivating tale of Asha, a quick-witted idealist, whose powerful wish is answered by the cosmic force, Star. Together, they embark on a magical—and at times perilous—adventure to conquer their most formidable foe, the ruler of Rosas, King Magnifico.

With its inspiring narrative, top-notch visuals, and enchanting music, "Wish" promises to be the must-watch movie of the season, tailor-made for families and friends. Ayala Malls
adds an extra layer of magic to these family-friendly outings by offering fun activities for everyone.

On November 18, Ayala Malls hosted the Philippine premiere of "Wish" in Glorietta Cinemas, and delighted guests with exciting pre-show games and activities in Glorietta Activity Center, sponsored by Disney. These fun activities included hair braiding, coloring corners for the kids, and face painting as well as a special performance of “Aking Hiling,” the special Filipino rendition of the movie’s main soundtrack, by Zephanie Dimaranan who performed it for the first time live. 

Zephanie is also set to perform the song on the Wish 107.5 Bus this November 25 and at her upcoming meet and greet at Ayala Malls Central Bloc. Starting this November 22, "Wish" will be shown in cinemas across the country. And because not everyone was able to catch the premiere, Ayala Malls happily invites friends and families to the movie’s grand opening weekend, this November 25 and 26, and to experience the same fun activities.

Come this Way to Rosas as the cinema lobbies will be beautifully transformed with stunning floral archways and a Wishing Wall installation inspired by the Kingdom of Rosas, that will surely transport moviegoers into a fantastical space.

Find not only picture-perfect corners but also fun activities to keep you entertained. At the “Hairstyle Inspired by Asha” Corner, young guests can elevate their dos with stars, ribbons, and butterflies, just like Asha. At the “Have Fun Like Valentino (the goat)” Corner, enjoy fun face-painting activities for the kids. The Wishing Wall, on the other hand, illuminated by brilliant lights and balloons, serves as a grand canvas where guests are invited to post their drawings and write down their wishes on the wall.

A  20-foot installation of Star can also be spotted at the center of the space. But don’t worry, for those around Ayala Malls Manila Bay and Ayala Center Cebu, you will have your Stars to gaze upon, too. From the activity center to the cinemas, be wonderfully enveloped in the whimsy of "Wish" as even the cinema lobbies will all be dressed up, inspired by the Kingdom of

"In Ayala Malls, we strive to create exciting opportunities for families and friends to come together—whether it's through shopping, dining, or catching a movie. We ensure that these experiences are not just fun visits to the mall but memorable moments spent with loved ones," said Chrissy Roa, Group Head of Marketing and Communications for Ayala Land Estates and Ayala Malls.

Watching movies at cinemas has always been a great parent-child and family bonding activity that cuts across generations. Discover the large-than-life displays of "Wish" in Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide. Tickets are now on sale at all Ayala Malls Cinemas, Zing app, or
