Christmas Town at Busch Gardens is a family friendly event that the whole family can participate in. If you have ever been to Busch Gardens before you will be amazed to see the entire park transformed into a Christmas wonderland. My family and I have been to Busch Gardens for the first time this year and we are season pass holders. However, Christmas Town is not a part of the one-year park pass but you do get a special discount being a season pass holder. A fun card, which allows you to have unlimited visits to Christmas Town is only $30. However, pass holders will get a discount. In my opinion, it is a very good investment because there is just so much to do and see here. I know from experience because my boys and I did so get to see everything so we will definitely be going back before the holiday season is over.
The Highland Stables
Since I did go to Busch Gardens as a blogger, we had our day rather planned for us. When we first arrived, we started at the Highland Stables where we were able to interact and take pictures with the Clydesdales. I must tell you these are some beautiful horses and my boys enjoyed the experience here. They were able to take photos with the Clydesdale when we first got there and we have a beautiful photo on our mantle that will provide us with memories for years to come. Then, we were able to go back and get to know the horses up close and personal by name. This was an experience that I thought was very cool, as I am a big horse lover.
Santa’s Fireside Feast
Next on our list of things to do was Santa’s Fireside Feast. Here the boys were not only able to take photos with Santa, the newest elf “Jingle”, and enjoy some amazing food but they were also able to here an amazing Christmas story told by Santa himself. The show was wonderful, everyone was so kind, and the food was awesome too. We have special cups that we were able to bring back with us and the boys enjoyed listening to Santa tell the Christmas story. The video shows a snippet of the show so you can know what to expect.
The last stop on our list for the night was to go make a personalized ornament. This was a cool experience, as you know I have reviewed personalized ornaments in the past yet I have never actually done one myself. The experience was fun but after the boys were finished with the ornaments, they were a little cranky so we had to go home but as I mentioned earlier we will definitely be returning soon because I really want them to be able to see the penguins and experience other sections of the park.
If you are near a Busch Gardens and have been debating about whether or not you should go to Christmas Town you definitely are going to want to go. It is something for the whole family to do. The park is decorated beautifully, they have select rides open, there is shopping to do for Christmas, and so much more. Regardless of your age, you are bound to have a good time if you decide to go to Busch Gardens.
