There is also valet parking available at the Tower entrance for an additional fee. VIP Holiday Package holders will receive complimentary valet parking as part of their package.

Do I need a ticket to enter Peppermint Park?
Yes. If you are a hotel guest, your room key is your ticket (whether you have a hard key or are using Digital Key). Once your room key is presented, you will be issued an official wristband. Non-hotel guests can purchase tickets online or on-site, and will need a hard ticket or e-ticket in order to be issued an official wristband.

How can I attend Breakfast with Santa?
By booking one of our exclusive holiday stay packages. They really are the best way to go because we take care of everything!

I attended Breakfast with Santa last year, but wasn’t a guest of the hotel. Can I do that this year? What gives?
Unfortunately, we are not opening up Breakfast with Santa tickets to the general public. So, yes, you can attend, but you must be a guest of the hotel. Package holders receive complimentary entrance as part of their stay, and non-package holders will have the opportunity to buy individual tickets provided they can present a confirmation number and/or room key.

Why should I book a package?
The average family will save over $100 by booking a package as opposed to buying everything a la carte. Plus, package holders receive extra perks such as late check-out and complimentary admission to Breakfast with Santa.

You’ll be able to enter the park by presenting you room key or digital room key at the entrance. Once presented, you’ll receive an official wristband.

Only super special elves are able to attend the meet and greet, but you can join in the fun by booking the VIP Holiday Experience Package.
