Christmas Festivities Planned
We’re happy to announce that Santa will be arriving for the holiday season on the weekend of December 1st & 2nd! He’ll be posing for pictures and talking with children in our New Frontier lobby from 9-11 a.m. Then he’ll be back December 8th, 9th, 15th, 16th, 22nd and 23rd.

For those children who are shy and don’t want to meet the big guy in person, we will also be collecting letters to Santa. They can pick up the special holiday stationery at any front desk. Once completed, they can drop their letters in the mailbox by Fast Molly’s Mercantile or at the Wild West front desk for special express delivery right to Santa.

Our WildKids’ team, and one of Santa’s elves, will be decorating Christmas cookies with children on Saturdays (December 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd) from 1-2 p.m. in our Glacier Canyon WildKids’ room.  There will also be various foam Christmas themed craft projects in our WildKids’ room for kids to get creative with.

New this year, you can order in advance holiday themed packages that can be placed in guest’s room as a surprise. It includes two Wilderness metallic silver and green mugs with hot chocolate mix and marshmallows, mini candy canes, a Christmas ornament and storytime book for just $40. Extra mugs (complete with hot chocolate mix) can be purchased for $5 each and a Wilderness blanket can be added for $20 more. The holiday package comes wrapped on a holiday tray with paper shred, a cellophane bag, and bow. Please call 608-253-9729 ext. 4552 (at least 48 hours in advance) to secure your special package.
