There will be a variety of special characters and performers to help lead guests to Santa. And you can experience a Merry & Bright forest all lit up, with the musical sounds of your favourite Christmas carols that you can sing along to.

The journey then goes to the Polar North, where there’s an iceberg cave, igloos, polar bears and penguins, as well as a Teddy Bear Brigade that will bring dreamland to life.

You’ll also find a 50-foot purple Christmas tree and some dancing elves while in Candy Cane Lane.

The magical event will take place on several dates throughout December.
