Guests are invited to gather around fire pits and warm up with specialty holiday beverages in the Fireside Lounge. They are also encouraged to make a donation to Make-A-Wish Foundation, and make a wish while lighting a candle in the magical Make-A-Wish Candle grotto.

Kids can have fun making music with recycled instruments, or play the piano and sing along to holiday tunes in the garden.
