How should we prepare for our visit?

When should we arrive?
Arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled train. Then train leaves promptly on the hour and 1/2 hour.
How do we check in when we arrive?
Visit the "Elf Station" which is an outdoor stand in front of the market. Santa Elf will check you in and give your a group # and name. This is the order you will visit Santa at his cabin. The cabin elf or Mrs. Claus will call your group at the cabin
ex. "Dasher's Group #3".
You will also be seated on the train based on your group name/number.
You will also fill out a "Donut Slip". This will let the bakery know what donuts & drinks you want after you return, so that they can prepare a "to go" package for you. There will be heated outdoor seating for your to enjoy cider and donuts.
What about Social Distancing this year?
The train has windows for ventilation and the seats are more than 6 foot distanced. Seats are taped off for family groups.
Multiple bonfires at Santa Cabin for distancing.
Patio heaters set up in an outdoor waiting area so people aren't congregating inside waiting for the train, but still have a warm space.
Socially Distanced Santa visit. Santa will be distanced with his work bench and sleigh. He does have a mask on under his beard (Yes, he has a fake beard). Mrs. Claus and elves will be wearing a mas. You can tell Santa what you want for Christmas and give him your letter. Mrs. Claus will be available too! We're still working on this setup and may need to make tweeks once we get started. We are trying our best to keep it magical.
Donuts & Cider: Fill out a slip before you leave on the train and the Bakery will make a "to go" package of donuts and cider to pick up when you return. Enjoy Cider & Donuts in the outdoor area heated by the patio heaters or take home to enjoy.

January 18 and 20 Winter’s Cold Chill: Jolly ol’ England to the Rescue: Perfect Roast Chicken with Current Jelly, Yorkshire Pudding and Treacle Tart
Julia Child often claimed that the worth of any cook is best determined by the quality of his or her roast chicken. And while Yorkshire (pronounced york-sure) pudding is often restricted to roast beef, we need not be so narrow in our own definitions.Treacle, or lemon tart, is a quintessentially British finish.
