Culinary Christmas Capers


This little Santa is so sweet you’ll eat him up.

Reindeer Games

Design your very own reindeer out of yummy ingredients like Nutter Butter Cookies, M&M's, pretzels, and frosting. 

“Deck it Out” Cookie Workshop

The holidays aren’t complete without a batch of fresh baked cookies. Our Chef provides the cookies, icing and sprinkles. You’re in charge of the scrumptious decorations!

Gingerbread Junction

Home building never tasted so sweet! Bring your family and friends for a stroll through Gingerbread Junction, on display in The Club November 26 through January 4th. The tastiest neighborhood in Orlando will grow and change daily as our community of guests help us build new gingerbread houses.

Reindeer Care 101

Create a special reindeer treat scrumptious enough to satisfy even the pickiest of reindeer. “Granola Sparkles” is Rudolph's special recipe, featuring just a touch of magic dust!    

The Candy Factory

Why do arts and crafts with paint and glue? We think it’s much more fun to create with candy canes, gumdrops, and gooey frosting! Come see how delicious you can design your own candied jewelry or make a scrumptious gumdrop Santa, snowman, or Christmas Tree.

Tinker Away in Santa’s Workshop

Santa’s Workshop

Use your imagination for blueprints and create something magical! Make a Christmas ornament that shows your holiday spirit. 

Let it Snow

The shimmering magic of snowfall is always transfixing, however, the chance of a white Christmas in Florida is slim. Homemade snow globes let you create a wintry scene that you can take with you anywhere!
