Food is the Star of the Show
Hearty Holiday Chicken Gumbo
It's not called "Taste" of the Season for nothing! Get yourself a tasting card and come hungry, because Chef Mitch has created an incredible menu of holiday sweets and savories. Honey Hot Tenders, Shrimp and Grits, Southern Poutine, Sweet Potato Pie Sundae, Fireball Cupcake...there are 30 scrumptious options to choose from on the tasting menu. I plan to try them all!
Ho Ho Hots Mini Donuts
There are Specialty Sips Too
When Chef Mitch sat down to create the delicious Taste of the Season menu, he didn't stop at food. He also came up with a menu of hot and cold holiday beverages. They can be served with or without spirits so all can enjoy them. Cheers!
Be Ready to Make Fun Holiday Memories
Once your belly is full of holiday goodies, there are lots of things to do. Stroll the decorated park enjoying live entertainment, join a dance party, compete with the kids in a holiday-themed game, and take a walk through the Reindeer Treat Trail. You may even see a few holiday characters from a safe distance. Look for the big guy himself!
