Guests will enjoy a hot breakfast buffet in the Pilot Special Exhibit Building and festive holiday crafts and games inspired by the season. Guests can also have a personal visit with Santa to reassure him that they have indeed been very nice this year, and pose for a keepsake photo, so be sure to bring your camera.
