The Holidays Are Here, Knott's #MerryFarm Is Now Open!

Disclosure: My family and I were invited by GigaSavvy to a media day at Knott's Berry Farm just so I can share with you all the awesomeness they have going on. Please note, all opinions are 100% mine. 

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know how much we love Snoopy and how excited we were for Knott's Merry Farm to start off the holidays this year. Knott's Merry Farm is the perfect place for families to make memories while experiencing fun attractions and holiday cheer. From November 22 through January 4, 2015, visitors are invited to experience all that Knott's Berry Farm has to offer as well as some extra holiday excitement including new shows, snow, food and holiday decor. Keep on reading to find out some more fun details. 

There was a lot of excitement in our house when we prepared for #MerryFarm this year. My girls already love the rides in Camp Snoopy and when I mentioned to them that they would be able to meet Santa and watch an Ice Show, then they were just over the moon excited. Little did they know, that was just the tip of the excitement that was coming their way.  

During Knott's #MerryFarm the Wilderness Dance Hall in Ghost Town transforms into Santa's Christmas Cabin and trust me when I tell you, the whole place smells delicious. Everything here is freshly baked and you can taste all of the limited time holiday treats like Milk and Cookies, Pastries, Candied nuts, Egg Nog and Coffee. That chocolate chip cookie was right out of the oven and clearly, brought a smile to my little ones face. 

Meeting with Santa is a must every year when the little ones are this little, and I was so happy that the #MerryFarm Santa (also located in Santa's Christmas Cabin) lived up to our very high expectations. Santa took the time to ask each of the kids what they wanted for Christmas and mentioned that they should be good boys and girls. And to be honest, that is exactly what my littlest needed to hear. 

One of the Holiday traditions at #MerryFarm that I sadly missed was the Christmas on Engine 41. I  need to go back and check out the fun vintage train ride I heard so much about. I am still hoping to gift our family with Season Passes to Knott's so we can go back and see everything we missed.

While visiting #MerryFarm this year, make sure not to miss the "Merry Christmas, Snoopy!" Ice show at the Charles M. Shulz Theater. The look on my daughters face when the snow began to fall is something I'll never forget. The ice dancers were all so amazing and talented and honestly I got a little emotional when the dancers performed to the song, "I'll be home for Christmas" and when Linus came out and gave his speech about the true meaning of Christmas.

I missed all the showtimes while running around but of course the Camp Snoopy Theatre has a fun show Lucy's Wish List, perfect for the kids to sing and dance along to. I've only shared some of the holiday highlights that Knott's #MerryFarm has to offer and you have to visit and make some of your own memories. 

Don't forget to buy your 2015 Season Pass now and receive one free admission this year and of course unlimited visits in 2015 with no blackout dates. Oh and since we are talking about next year, which is just around the corner, get ready to experience the brand new interactive 4-D attraction, Voyage to the Iron Reef, in spring 2015.

So tell me: What are you most looking forward to at #MerryFarm this year?

Celebrate the Holidays with Snoopy at Knott's #MerryFarm!

It's that time of year again! The 2014 Holiday season is upon us and here in Southern California, we have some of the best places to visit with the family.
 This year we are starting a new holiday tradition at Knott’s Berry Farm’s special holiday celebrations Knott’s Merry Farm. Merry Farm celebrates the Christmas season November 22 through January 4, 2015 and is a fun filled event that includes park-wide lavish decorations, live entertainment, festive food, and a shopping wonderland filled with local artisans. 
 It's no surprise that everyone loves Snoopy and the Peanut Gang, but you know who everyone else loves? Santa Claus! At Knott's Merry Farm you have all the fun in one place. The Wilderness Dance Hall in Ghost Town becomes home to Santa’s Christmas Cabin for the holiday season. Here, the young and the young at heart can share their wish lists with jolly Santa Claus and take home a picture of the occasion. Guests can also indulge in holiday delights such as:
● Santa’s homemade cookies 
● Hot fudge sundae bar
● Decadent hot chocolate topped with hand carved chocolate shavings 
● Winter wine and craft beer tastings paired with fresh fruit, cheese and more!
One of my favorite things about Knott’s Merry Farm is the live entertainment. I love the shows and I love that my girls get to experience fun shows too. While at Knott's Merry Farm, make sure to catch a performance by the world famous beagle, Snoopy as he performs a brand new ice spectacular, Merry Christmas, Snoopy! inside of the 2,100 Charles M. Schulz Theatre. And don't forget to check out a unique live performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol or O. Henry’s A Gift of the Magi in an intimate setting of the historic Bird Cage Theatre.
 The amazing decorations and characters completely transform Knott's Berry Farm into a Winter Wonderland filled with Holiday magic.
When the sun sets on the Farm, Calico Stage lights up with the celebration of the season in Snoopy’s merriest, musical, whimsical tree lighting featuring a cast of Toy Soldiers, Snowmen, Elves and America’s most famous beagle, Snoopy!
One of the things I am most excited about experiencing this year is Christmas on Engine 41. Introduced in 2013, guests can climb aboard a vintage railcar and meet an ever-changing group of Ghost Town residents eager to share their Christmas plans and songs with you.
Oh and of course, the food, you can't forget the food. Knott’s Merry Farm’s elves have created delicious festive treats including Santa’s homemade cookies, sundae bar, decadent hot chocolate topped with hand carved chocolate shavings, and winter wine and craft beer tastings. Savor the ultimate comfort foods with Knott’s world famous desserts, including fresh made-to-order Maple Lollipops, churros from the Churro Factory, cakes, cookies, muffins and gingerbread men in the Farm Bakery, as well as the legendary cooking at Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant.
