We’re kicking off the Christmas season with a Christmas Tree Lighting celebration at Sundial! Resort guests can enjoy complimentary hot chocolate and cookies while getting into the spirit with holiday music. Once you’ve had your nibble, visit the Letter writing station to pen your Christmas wish list to Santa. Next, create your own holiday ornament to add to our tree. Keep the holiday cheer going with a visit with our winter celebrities, The Grinch, Elsa and Tropical Santa!
