Winter Wonderland is back, and it’s growing!  We’re supersizing our sparkling Christmas Tree Forest with a 30-foot Christmas tree! Plus, we have nightly “snow” flurries, sparkling holiday décor, visits from Santa and other holiday characters and special events for the whole family from December 2nd through Christmas Day!

Enjoy a Sleigh Ride down The Wekiva River on Saturday & Sundays, Visit with Santa & Mrs. Claus every Friday, Saturday & Sunday, wander through the Christmas Tree Forest, check out the shenanigans of The Grinch, Cindy Lou Who & The Whoville Elves, watch a beloved Holiday movie outdoors, listen to a story read by Mrs. Claus, enjoy Breakfast With Santa and simply enjoy the Holiday Season while relaxing along The Wekiva River.

In the spirit of the season, Wekiva Island will be collecting new and unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots. Wekiva Island will also be offering specials and discounts at its General Store, in addition to free gift wrapping on ALL gifts brought to the Island—so guests can kick back with a beverage with Island elves do all the hard work.

Winter Wonderland is open to the public. There is a $2 admission fee, and select events require and additional ticket.
