I use this code to create jquery dialog and CKEditor instance

 <input class="boton_fancybox" onclick="createEditor(this);" id="boton_texto" type="button" style="text-decoration:none;" value="Editar el contenido de este campo">

<textarea rows="5" class="campo" cols="90" id="texto" name="texto" style="display:none;"></textarea>

<script type="text/javascript" src="../../contenidos/ckeditor5/ckeditor.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.10.0/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.10.0/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css" />    
<script type="text/javascript">
var editor, html = '';
var config = {};

function createEditor(campo)
 var temp = campo.id.split("_");

       if ( editor )

        $("#div_"+temp[1]).bind('dialogopen', function() //JQ
                editor = CKEDITOR.replace( temp[1],
						height:"600", width:"780",
						toolbar: [
	{ name: 'document', groups: [ 'mode', 'document', 'doctools' ], items: [ 'Source' ] },
	{ name: 'clipboard', groups: [ 'clipboard', 'undo' ], items: [ 'Cut', 'Copy', 'Paste', 'PasteText', 'PasteFromWord', '-', 'Undo', 'Redo' ] },
	{ name: 'basicstyles', groups: [ 'basicstyles', 'cleanup' ], items: [ 'Bold', 'Italic', 'Underline', 'Strike', 'Subscript', 'Superscript', '-', 'RemoveFormat' ] },
	{ name: 'paragraph', groups: [ 'list', 'indent', 'blocks', 'align', 'bidi' ], items: [ 'NumberedList', 'BulletedList', '-', 'Outdent', 'Indent', '-', 'Blockquote' ] },
	{ name: 'links', items: [ 'Link', 'Unlink', 'Anchor' ] },
	{ name: 'insert', items: [ 'HorizontalRule', 'SpecialChar', 'Iframe' ] },
	{ name: 'tools', items: [ 'Maximize' ] },
	 { name: 'colors', items: ['TextColor', 'BGColor'] }

		enterMode : CKEDITOR.ENTER_BR,
						shiftEnterMode: CKEDITOR.ENTER_P
        }).bind('dialogclose', function()
        .dialog({autoOpen: false,
                maxHeight:0.95 * $(window).height(),//1
                width: 800,
                modal: false,
                position: 'top',
                resizable: false,
                autoResize: true }).dialog('open');

function removeEditor()
        if ( !editor )

        editor = null;

Open in new window

Of course there is, just make sure you reference your js file AFTER the ckeditor.js reference.

Also make sure the DOM is ready...
The easiest way is to declare your script last thing before the end of the </body>

This way you're sure all dependencies are loaded and the DOM is ready.
Also like this you don't need to use jquery DOM ready function.
