It’s that time of year again, yes Winter Wonderland time. So every year I make it a ritual to visit (well I’ve been twice this year so far and I have a couple more trips planned) and I must say it looks better and better each year. They have made an amazing use of park space I must say, it’s like walking into a little theme park with all the stalls, rides and games. This year was a slightly different experience; I went with my gorgeous little boy and I think he enjoyed it more than I did!
Ok so he was asleep on arrival but that didn’t last for long. I got too excited seeing the rides, I had to wake him up…oooh bad mum, but it was well worth it. He throughly enjoyed himself on the train ride.
I must say Winter Wonderland is very kids friendly with all the rides, Santa Land, Lycamobile Ice Rink, Magical Ice Kingdom (which looked spectatular but kept it at a distant as it looked far too cold to be near ) and toys to be won. The games stations are often plagued with adults trying their hardest to win themselves a teddy bear and from what I could see, 99% of those sucked at it.
After the train ride with our little ones, me and my friend took some time out to take a stroll and wonder through the various stalls with hot chocolates in tow of course! It is far from the best but amidst the cold and christmas aura, it somehow tasted reasonably good:) We stopped off at various game stalls and tried endlessly to win ourselves a fluffy friend but failed miserably at every attempt, from throwing rings over a bottle, throwing of balls in hoops to archery (just to name a few). With the amount of money we had spent on these games, I think a trip to the Disney store would have been well spent.
Trip number 2 also involved a visit to the hot chocolate stand and a couple more failed attempts at winning a fluffy friend. Oh well, better luck next year, I hope!
It was a cold day, so dress code:
