Santa’s Fireside Feast
The grand dining room of Castle O’Sullivan springs to life as Santa and Mrs. Claus host the most intimate and exclusive event of the season, Santa’s Fireside Feast. Guests gather cozily around the majestic castle as Santa captures the attention of the entire family while recounting a classic Christmas story. Enjoy a scrumptious buffet prepared by expert elves under the direction of Mrs. Claus as she dazzles the dining room, passing the cookie tray and spreading holiday cheer. This is one dinner children of all ages will not soon forget. 

Santa’s Workshop 
Create memories that will last a lifetime at Christmas Town. Catch a sneak peek of Santa and Mrs. Claus through the snow-covered windows of his North Pole workshop. Excitement builds as families peer through a paned window into Santa’s study nestled between two reindeer stables. Children are greeted by elf attendants who guide them inside as they eagerly await a visit with Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Children are invited to sit on Santa’s lap and pose for a photo that will forever capture the memory of this experience.
