Over the weekend we hopped on up to The Sweetest Place on Earth! to enjoy this year’s Hersheypark Christmas Candylane attraction! This annual event is always one of our favorites to help get us in the Christmas spirit and enjoy the holiday season. Today I’m sharing six experiences you do not want to miss at the 2019 Hersheypark Christmas Candylane attraction!
Santa’s reindeer are always sure to make a stop at Hersheypark before their big night in late December! Don’s miss Santa’s Stables to experience the magic and allow your children to see the reindeer for themselves!
Staff from ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park are on-hand with fun reindeer facts and information tidbits. It’s so cool to see actual reindeer this close!
Hersheypark and chocolate go hand in hand, so of course the Hot Chocolate options make our list! Make sure you pick up a Hot Chocolate Souvenir Mug! The All-Season Souvenir Mug Deal pictured below ($17) allows you refills for FREE every visit to the 2019 season.
You can also opt for the All-Day Souvenir Mug Deal ($12) allows you to drink FREE all day on day of visit, and receive $1 refills the remainder of the Christmas Candylane season. Either way, these Mug Deals are a great way to not only give warm yourself up, but also to help out the Children’s Miracle Network Hershey! Hersheypark donates a dollar from each Mug sale to CMNH!
New last year was the Simply Chocolate Hot Chocolate Bar! We were super excited to see the menu return again this season. Of course I don’t want you to miss out on these delicious beverages!
Simply Chocolate offers a variety of flavor themes! My son loves the Peppermint, while I’m a big fan of the Toasted Marshmallow.
The Littlest Tree
Every year I recommend that when visitors need a break from the cold, they head into the HEATED Chevrolet Music Box Theatre. This year’s holiday production The Littlest Tree was such a joy to watch, I knew I needed to add it to my “Don’t Miss!” list!
The show is packed with holiday tunes and colorful costumes! It’s a fun show, with heart. The positive message is a wonderful one, that is perfect for the holiday season of giving. I may have even teared up a little…
Hershey Holiday Characters
Hersheypark is wonderful when it comes to offering holiday photo opportunities! While the Santa photo op is a popular one, I’m always on the look out for Hershey Characters! Since Hershey Characters are unique to Hersheypark and other Hershey, PA attractions, I love to grab a photo with them in their seasonal holiday garb!
There is an indoor, heated photo opportunity with three of Hershey Characters across from Santa in Kissing Tower Hill themed area. This is great if you don’t want to scout out Hersheypark for the Characters.
Dry Gulch Rail Road
If there is one ride you must enjoy while attending the attraction, do not miss the Dry Gulch Railroad!
The railroad ride is definitely one of our family’s favorites for the holidays. Hersheypark does an amazing job with all the light displays! It truly is a magical experience for all ages.
Hersheypark is covered with over 4 million lights during the Christmas Candylane attraction! A number of those lights are part of the NOEL light show!
This breathtaking light show that features more than 200,000 dancing lights, all synchronized to festive Christmas music. The shows start every half hour starting at 5 PM.
Check out our quick “Hersheypark Christmas Candylane” video below that includes peeks at the NOEL light show!
