This and That

Irvine Park Railroad and Santa

Posted on: December 12, 2011

Every Christmas the Irvine Park has their Christmas Train which carries children a light filled “forest” to Santa’s wonderland.  I have to say I love going to this because it’s an event and more of an experience then just taking the boys to see Santa at the mall.

Before we got on the train we hung out at Santa’s Village just next to the train stop. You do have to buy tickets for some of the fun here but there are free things to do too.

Of course there is a Santa themed bounce house,

a cookie decorating area,

Ms. Claus reading stories (free),

and fun cardboard cut outs.

Then we jumped on the Christmas Train for the highlight of the night.

The boys were so excited.

The whole park is full of twinkling lights which make for such a magic experience, for the kids and the adults. It really seemed like the train was taking us to another land.

As we rounded the last corner we saw Santa’s stage and after a relatively short wait in line it was our turn to see the big man…

The best part was the boys didn’t freak out and we got this cute picture! Woohoo!

The Santa was great too. He was very kind and had a little conversation with Isaac; it was very cute.

Another great perk is they let us take our own pictures for free and only if we wanted could buy one of their for $10.

We had a successful, fun-filled trip to see Santa at the Irvine Park Railroad. I highly recommended this to everyone. Note: because of it’s popularity you need to go online and get a reservation here.
