50 Days of Lights

If it’s festive, it happens during our 50 Days of Lights. A 7-foot-tall gingerbread house, an elaborate Victorian village and visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus create a holiday wonderland. Hear music of the season at both hotels and revel in larger-than-life decorations – not to mention nearly a million sparkling lights.
