Irvine Park Railroad Christmas Train 2013


one of our family’s favorite holiday traditions is going to Irvine Regional Park and riding the Irvine Park Railroad Christmas Train. it’s a magical experience, especially for those little ones who love trains, to ride the Christmas Train to the North Pole and visit Santa Claus.


once you arrive to the North Pole on the Christmas Train, you can purchase hot chocolate, cookies or popcorn while you wait for your turn to see Santa Claus. when it was our turn, the boys gave their wish lists to Santa and we were able to get this family picture!


back at the Irvine Park Railroad train depot, there is a wonderland of lighted Christmas Trees, a holiday maze, a Christmas house where you can also purchase holiday treats and lots of places for photo ops.


you can also have a special story time with Mrs. Claus (no additional charge) or for a small additional fee, decorate sugar cookies, play carnival games, jump in the bouncy house or get your face painted.


we even took a family #selfie in the Christmas house. it was a wonderful evening of family fun.


if you would like to visit the Irvine Park Railroad Christmas Train, you must order your ticket ONLINE. and when you do visit the Irvine Park Railroad Christmas Train, make sure to tag them in your Facebook, twitter and instagam posts! they love to see your photos.


{disclaimer: i received complimentary tickets for may family to enjoy the Christmas Train. we would have gone either way….all thoughts and opinions are a bazillion times my own. we love the Christmas Train. }

    My favorite family Christmas tradition is being together with my daughter every Christmas morning and spending the whole day together!

  2. My parents host an annual Christmas open house on the second Sunday of December. It’s a flurry of people (about 100 over the course of the evening) with tons of food and fun. I love seeing everyone and celebrating together.

  3. It’s definitely time to start baking!!! I love getting in the spirit and all the wonderful photos I get this time of year!! The family time too! :0)

    Decorating the tree, watching old and new christmas movies, listening to christmas music, riding around looking for christmas lights at night…..just the whole time is wonderful! Hard to pick just one!
