Hop aboard the Holiday Express train ride, get into the holiday spirit with festive entertainment on select evenings, and share your wish list with Santa. Stop by Atwood’s Merry Creations in the Activities Building where kids can decorate an Atwood’s Bakery cookie and make a craft.
Warm up with tasty winter treats from the Palm Café. Hot chocolate, meals and snacks will be available for purchase. Wrap up the evening with a stop at the Zootique Gift Shop where a variety of wild gift items, perfect for the animal in everyone, await.
