The later in the day that you arrive and if you arrive after 3:30pm, the less you will be able to see and you may also have to move through the complex more quickly than you would like as sections start closing at 4:00pm and the complex completely closes at 5:00pm. If you arrive between 3:30 and 4:00 pm, you will not be able to see the full Christmas Experience.  We recommend at least 2 to 2.5 hours to see the Christmas Experience.
