Christmas at the Anatole basically consists of many events but there are THREE BIG events that require tickets to be purchased in order to see/attend:
#1 Geppetto’s Theater
#2 Sparkle now called Peppermint Park
#3 Breakfast with Santa

For free: At anytime you can view the inside of the hotel which is transformed into a magical wonderland (see pictures above) full of elves working hard for a life-size Santa’s workshop, a reindeer bar, the tallest nutcracker in TX (I somehow missed the Nutcracker when I went), an old-fashion running train, gingerbread houses, Christmas trees and more.

#1 Geppetto’s Theater
Our review post of Geppetto’s Theater has been a popular post and we are so excited to share our LOVE of this theater with our readers. That post provides a detailed view of the theater itself: how to get to it once at the Anatole, parking info, stroller info, age appropriateness for kids, food, drinks, puppet, and marionette defined, and more.
