Fairy Winterland is the wintertime celebration that takes over Children’s Fairyland with twinkly lights and Santa Claus December 17-23 and 26-30 (yes, Santa will appear after Christmas this year so kids can thank him!). Just like a daytime visit to Fairyland, it is best for toddlers through kindergarteners and the adults that love to see them smile.
For these exciting days, Fairyland gets a special holiday makeover with thousands of twinkling lights, free cocoa, candy canes, and a visit from Santa Claus (Black Santa since 1993!). Look for this year’s celebration to go beyond Christmas to celebrate more cultures and faiths.

Santa Claus will be avoiding lap-sitting for 2021 to keep himself and all the children healthy for the holidays. There will be a letter deposit box in the Chapel of Peace. Write a letter with your wishes before coming, and grab a small candy cane on the way out.
