Here’s what’s in store at American Dream’s “The Heart of the Holidays” celebration throughout the month of December:
Daily – Elf Workshop: Tucked inside Nickelodeon Universe, near Jelly Fish Jam, is Santa’s Workshop. Here, Santa’s elves are setting up shop to share holiday magic. There will be stations, run by elves, where guests can write a letter to Santa, decorate ornaments, or color some pictures. Santa’s elves will be buzzing about and creating wonderful holiday memories for all.
Daily – Toy Soldiers Stilt Walkers: As guests wander around, they will be greeted by our toy soldier friends! Dressed in Nutcracker-esque attire, these performers are easily able to take photos with guests and add some high-flying holiday fun throughout American Dream.
Music Mondays: Live from American Dream! Take a break and tune in as American Dream brings the magic of weekly, holiday-themed performances right to your living room. Talented local performers will be showcased across American Dream’s social channels and live pop-up performances throughout American Dream.
Wish Wednesdays: Beginning December 9th and every Wednesday from 12:30 – 6:30 pm at American Dream, make a wish in the Garden Court with one of American Dream’s holiday elves. Post your wish and tag @americandream on Instagram and you may get a holiday surprise! All wishes will be collected and delivered to Santa.
Thursdays – Candy Cane Passport Hunt: Come to American Dream each Thursday for a trip around American Dream with a festive scavenger hunt. Pick up your passport at the entrance to Nickelodeon Universe and look out for the signs where American Dream’s holiday helpers will be stationed with stamps and a little surprise! Follow American Dream on Instagram for clues every Thursday. Post your completed passport and tag us, for a chance to win a special holiday surprise. Ticket for Nickelodeon Universe is not required to participate.
Fridays and Saturdays – Night at The Rink: Spend your night at The Rink with a different theme each night. Groove to disco-themed music, top hits, and more being spun by Santa himself. Join us every Friday and Saturday from 5 – 9 pm through December 19.
Holiday Sweater Saturdays: Every Saturday in December, don your most festive holiday-themed sweater and join us–the tackier, the better! Guests are encouraged to post pictures of themselves in their holiday sweaters and tag American Dream on Instagram @americandream for a chance to be “Instafamous” on our social media channels. Don’t forget to follow along and vote for your favorite sweaters – one of the top holiday sweaters will get a holiday surprise!
