Celebrate the magic of the season at Rosen Hotels & Resorts, Where Christmas Happens™. We invite you to join our family as we give thanks and celebrate in style with holiday fun. Here is just a taste of the family-fun activities we’ve hosted in the past.
Letter Writing to Santa
Let Santa know what you really want for Christmas in a carefully detailed letter to him. Drop your wish list in Santa’s Mailbox at the Letter Writing Station located in the lobby. Throughout the month Sparkle, Santa’s most trusted elf, will drop by to pick up the letters and deliver them to Santa.
Holiday Origami lessons
Learn a new crafty skill this holiday season. Our resident origami artist will teach you to fold paper into delightful holiday shapes. Save your origami and decorate your Christmas tree with your miniature creations.
Visit from Santa Claus and Holiday Cookie Decorating
Join us for our All You Can Eat Buffet at Plaza Garden Restaurant, you also get a cookie to decorate. Turn your cookie into an edible ornament, snowflake, present, Christmas tree, or a mitten—or whatever you can imagine. Santa will pop-in during the evening to say hello to all the good boys and girls who may be dining with us. Spend some time with Santa, letting him know what you’d like for Christmas. Grab your cell phone and have your photo taken with jolly old St. Nick. Good boys and girls can expect a special treat!
Breakfast and Story Time with Mrs. Claus
Visit with Mrs. Claus during breakfast for coloring and holiday story time. There will be coloring contests for the kids. Mrs. Claus will bring your best artistic creations to Santa when she returns to the North Pole.
Holiday Balloon Artist or Face Painting
Get in the spirit of the season with our balloon artist or face painter. Kids of all ages will delight as she fashions holiday shapes using balloons. On select nights, she provides festive face painting to get you ready for your holiday adventures.
Holiday Photo Booth and Reindeer Games with Sparkle the Elf
Did you write your letter to Santa? You’ll want to have that done before this event where Sparkle the Elf comes to pick up your letters to Santa. But first, playtime! Sparkle plays reindeer games with the kids. Bring home proof that elves do exist with your very own holiday photo with Sparkle in the photo booth located in the lobby. Photos are complimentary. A little elf says you may see some “snow flurries” on Friday nights too!
Holiday Karaoke & Cocktails
Oh come all ye faithful (adult) carolers and sing your favorite holiday (or other favorite) tunes at Zebra’s Sports Bar & Grille. Grab a late night bite to eat and enjoy one of our specialty holiday cocktails guaranteed to ignite the holiday spirit within.
