elcome to our magical Christmas castle! We've been hard at work planning plenty of activities and special events for the holiday season. To secure your preferred activity times, we highly recommend making reservations well in advance. Events are complimentary to hotel guests unless otherwise noted.


As we get closer to the festive season, more events & activities will be added. 
Check back often for updates to this schedule.​



All events and activities have been planned with your safety in mind. Frequent surface sanitation, maximum number of participants and advanced reservations have been put in place to allow for proper social distancing. For more information, please see our FAQs.


New this year, each activity can only be reserved once throughout your stay. This is to ensure that all guests have the opportunity
to participate and enjoy the magic of Christmas at the Castle, while still allowing for social distancing. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation towards making this a wonderful and safe holiday season.

If you are interested in booking an activity for a second time during your stay, please check availability on the day of the session.
