Winter Break Activities

Looking for something to do with the family over the winter break? we have some great ideas on where you can go.

On Wednesday December 20th, I chatted with Laura Casella on Global news morning about some great activities to do with the family over the winter holiday break. Here is all the info on the events we discussed.

Immersive Disney Animation

is an innovative celebration that takes you inside the greatest films of Walt Disney Animation Studios, from their very earliest, groundbreaking features to the beloved hit movies of today.

Imagine stepping into the Casita with Mirabel from Encanto, being at Pride Rock as Rafiki presents Simba – surrounded by the animal kingdom as the sun rises. Imagine hopping on a train with Judy Hopps and going into Zootopia or taking a magic carpet ride with Aladdin and Jasmine, and so much more….

Now you can! Step into the art and legacy of Walt Disney Animation Studios and celebrate the music, artistry and animation from the creators of FrozenThe Little MermaidBig Hero 6 and many more.
