This year, more than 8 million lights were strung up to create displays for this year's theme, "the beauty of mother nature."

The main attraction is a 98-foot-tall tunnel that changes color to reflect the changing of the leaves every autumn. The walk through is an immersive experience which includes music.

It takes thousands of workers four months to install the intricate displays, the resort's spokesperson told CNN.

Last year the park received 2 million visitors.

The lights are on display until May.
