Parking Tips

  • On-Site Parking does sell out quickly! We highly recommend purchasing a parking permit in advance!

  • Planning to use our Free Off-Site Parking? Space is limited, so plan to arrive early! Shuttles begin running at park opening each night.

  • Although there are FREE handicap parking spaces available, they will fill up very fast. To ensure that you secure a parking spot on-site, it is highly recommended to purchase a parking permit in advance.

  • If you have purchased a parking permit in advance, please be familiar with the Parking Map AND have parking permit pulled up and ready for the attendant to scan! This helps keep wait time to enter the parking lot at a minimum! 

  • Parking Permits do work as a reservation! Please arrive as close to your chosen time slot as possible! Early entry to the lot will not be granted more than 30 minutes prior to your reservation! Please note that each on-site lot will not open more than 1 hour prior to park opening each night.

Oversized Vehicles, like dually trucks, vans, trailers, and RVs, must park in the Prancer Parking Lot with an Oversized Vehicle Parking Permit. Make sure to obtain the permit for Prancer Parking Lot specifically for your oversized vehicle. For more information and to purchase those parking permits, please visit our Ticketing Page here:

What Day Should We Visit?

Like other popular attractions, Santa's Wonderland experiences higher attendance on weekends compared to weekdays. If you're visiting on a weekend, be prepared for larger crowds and longer wait times. As Christmas approaches, all days, including weekdays, become busier with bigger crowds.

What Time Should I Arrive?

Check our operating hours for your planned visit to Santa's Wonderland! We open early on select nights, so arriving early is recommended for maximum park enjoyment. Note that Parking Permits are reservations, so arrive as close to your chosen time slot as possible. Avoid congestion by not arriving to park earlier than 1 hour before opening.
