Walks Through the Park

Please note that there may be several nights, especially Friday and Saturday nights, with high visitor capacities, creating long wait times for train & carousel rides. We ask for your patience and understanding. Visitors who would like to view the lights without waiting in line for the train or carousel are always welcome to stroll through the park on their own to view the majority of the displays.
