9th Annual Christmas at the Princess

The resort's holiday friends Princesses Angelica and Noel, a huggable Yeti named Shivers and the squishable Grahm, a walking s'more, plus Peppermint Penguin and Selfie Elfie each bring their own special charm from the North Pole each night at the opening at 5 p.m. and through the closing ceremonies at 9 p.m. 

At S'mores Land, families can roast marshmallows around one of the 17 campfires, take an icy slide down the four-lane Polar Glide, a whirl on the Christmas Carousel or a twirl on Frosty's Ferris Wheel, with 15 gondolas seating up to six passengers.

The resort's Christmas tree twinkles and dances to 18 holiday songs from 6-10 p.m. nightly.  A high-definition, animated video show features holiday scenes set to music and projected against the resort's facade on the hour from 6-9 p.m.

Made with real ice and surrounded by picturesque saguaros, ice skaters experience magical snowfalls beneath a star-filled Arizona sky. $20 per person and $5 for skate rental. 

Board one of two Princess Express Trains nightly for a ride around the Lagoon Lights. 

Christmas at the Princess is open to the public. General admission includes access to Enchanted Plaza with the four-story musical tree, Enchanted Plaza video show, a walk-through experience of 4.5 million Lagoon Lights, the Nativity Garden and S'mores Land.
