Must Haves of Christmas Town Village
COOKIES & COCOA
Name a better duo. We’ll wait. You can’t go wrong with a classic cup of hot cocoa, but if you’re looking to spice things up, opt for the gingerbread, peppermint, or caramel cocoa. No matter which you choose, any specialty hot cocoa will pair perfectly with our deep dish cookies.
PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE CUP
Did you really go to Christmas Town if you didn’t have the pumpkin cheesecake cup? Enjoy the decadence of cheesecake with the seasonal comfort of pumpkin. Stop by the North Pole Bakery Cabin in the Christmas Town Village to find this holiday cheesecake. You won’t regret it.
LOADED MASHED POTATOES
The Holiday Comforts cabin is your one-stop shop for loaded mashed potatoes. With the choice of Impossible™ chili or shredded turkey in gravy, every mashed potatoes bowl comes topped with shredded cheese, crumbled bacon and crispy onions. Not to mention, you can choose Impossible™ chili as a savory dish all on its own!
CHICKEN AND WAFFLE SANDWICH
Conquering tall coasters calls for enjoying a tall sandwich, right? This Christmas Town spin on the classic, chicken and waffles, is elevated with an apple-butter spread and maple syrup. Find this savory dish at the Waffles Wonderland cabin in the Christmas Town Village.
PUMPKIN AND BLUE FROST CHRISTMAS THRILL SHAKES
Thrill shake seekers, rejoice! Christmas Town wouldn’t be complete without its own holiday themed thrill shakes. You can choose between the festive blue frost Christmas and the indulgent pumpkin thrill shake. Look for these wintry concoctions at the Frosty Floats & Shakes cabin in the Christmas Town Village.
