The temperatures have dipped below 80 which means we can practically taste the eggnog and see sugar plums dancing in our heads. And with the imminent arrival of the most wonderful time of year, means the annual Christmas at the Princess festival is also just around the corner. The family-friendly event is entering its 9th year as the best way to get your holiday spirit on with plenty of Christmas cheer and festive fun.
This year’s event will be open nightly Nov. 20 through Dec. 30. Festival-goers can look forward to joyful faves like Santa’s Secret Scottsdale Headquarters, a Build-A-Bear Workshop pop-up store, S’mores Land, holiday character appearances and holiday shopping. The 6,000-square-foot Desert Ice Skating Ring will return with its magical nightly snowfalls, along with the Lagoon Lights and Princess Express Trains. Marvel at more than 4.5 million LED lights with fun displays including toy soldiers, a candy cane forest and more. And to top it all off, the four-story tree with 70,000 LED lights will twinkle and dance to classic holiday songs in the Enchanted Plaza. And make sure not to miss the resort’s upcoming holiday events like the tree lighting ceremony, breakfast with Santa and more.
