Giveaway: Irvine Park Railroad {Christmas} Train 2013

+
Disclosure: I was given tickets for review purposes. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
It is that time of year again when the Irvine Park Railroad decks the train and 
Santa arrives for the 18th annual Christmas Train!!!!
There is something special about twinkle lights, trees, and a train that takes you to Santa.
It makes me feel like I am a kid riding on the Polar Express.
It's just magical!

And the Christmas Train isn't just for Christmas adoring adults, the kids love it too!
We love having this Christmas tradition with the kids and I love to see how excited they are to visit with Santa and share their Christmas wishes.

Some helpful tips you'll want to remember when coming to ride the Christmas Train:
  • BUY YOUR TICKETS ONLINE! This is the only way to purchase tickets this year. It's a new policy, so be sure you purchase ahead of time ONLINE and don't show up empty handed.
  • Bring your camera. There are so many photo opps! You get to take pictures with Santa and you can take your own or purchase the photo taken by the Irvine Park Railroad Staff.
  • Dress warmly! It can get chilly and the North Pole and you don't want to be left shivering. So be sure to dress in layers and don't forget a your scarf.
  • Arrive early so you can avoid the crowds and have plenty of time for fun!

Irvine Park Railroad Christmas Train 2012


Although we are big fans of the Irvine Park Railroad and have taken
the kids to the train since JT was little, we've never been on the Christmas Train.
This weekend we had the chance to experience the train for the first time
and I have to say that it was magical!
There is something special about twinkle lights, trees, and a train that takes you to Santa.
I felt like I was a kid riding on the Polar Express.


The kids loved it too!
It was exciting to begin a new Christmas tradition and share
the experience with the kids and see how excited they were to visit
with Santa and share their Christmas wishes.
