Climb aboard the Springs Preserve's Holiday Express and be whisked away on a magical train ride to Santa's village. Your very merry adventure includes personal time with Santa in his cottage, festive crafts, cookie decorating, story time, reindeer games, "snow" (yes, snow!) and more.
It's a family-fun winter wonderland with multiple departures each day, every half-hour from 2 to 6 p.m. on Fridays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on all other event days. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time to ensure all guests have checked-in and boarded prior to train departure. Trains depart promptly at the listed tour start time. The Springs Preserve Holiday Express experience is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Remember your camera! Keeping your time with Santa personal, there won't be a professional photographer at Santa's village. You are encouraged to bring your own camera or smartphone to document your Santa sighting.
