Holiday Wish: Follow the Magic at the Stamford Town Center
We have been loving all of the magical holiday experiences in Westchester (and beyond), and another one to get on your radar is Holiday Wish: Follow the Magic, an indoor, interactive, walk-through experience that takes you and your kids from room-to-room, unveiling a new and enchanted illuminated moment every step of the way.
Held in the Stamford Town Center in a 20,000 square-foot space, the experience starts where your kids are given a passport where they are asked to go through the space and search for specific elements. They are then greeted by a helper who asks your child what they’d like for Christmas, and then carted off to the next moment.
The visual storytelling of Holiday Wish was quite stunning as we meet an inventor, saw some gorgeous illuminated Christmas trees, saw the Elves’ workshop and reindeer, took pictures with a live Elf on a Shelf, and even saw six-foot-tall animatronic singing polar bears!
My kids and I loved the illuminated tunnel filled with bright ornaments, twinkling forest, and illuminated animals like the bear, wolf, and penguin.
Towards the end of the experience, my daughter was greeted by Mrs. Claus who took her letter and helped her mail it off to Santa. Other interactive elements included a snowball fight game and tons of areas to take pictures amongst the most beautiful backdrops!
For an additional fee, families can also meet with and take a photo in the mall’s grand court. There is also a store where you can buy beautiful ornaments, candy, and mementos at a gift shop.
Fun for kids of all ages, Holiday Wish: Follow the Magic will transport you and your kids to a magical world filled with joy and magical holiday moments that they will remember forever.
