2020 Yuletide Weekends

Although Santa's Workshop will be open this winter, there will be no Yuletide Weekends in 2020. Typically, parents can treat their kids to something special during the holiday season at the North Pole, where they can enjoy the magic of a Christmas Village and visit the big man himself at Santa's Workshop! Special Yuletide Family Weekends are typically offered through November and December. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for families with children ranging from 2 to 10 years.

An example of what Yuletide Weekend dates would typically be:

  • November 13 - 15 (smaller weekend, more intimate with Santa and his helpers)
  • November 20 - 22 (fills up quickly)
  • November 27 - 29 (Thanksgiving Weekend - most popular, fills up quickly)
  • December 4 - 6 (fills up quickly)
  • December 11 - 13 (fills up quickly)
  • December 18 - 20 (typically a smaller weekend - great way to start Christmas week!)
