    The CITO Family Party is sold out. No tickets will be sold at the door.

    Family Preview Party

    Kids get the royal holiday treatment at their own Celebration in the Oaks Preview Party and – bonus! – mom and dad can enjoy this family experience without lifting a finger. Your little ones will feel like the kings and queens of the ball at this fun-filled party.

    And special this year at the Celebration in the Oaks Family Party - we'll have the characters from FROZEN! That's right, Princess Anna, Queen Elsa, Kristoff and the lovable Olaf. They'll be walking around and will be ready to take photos with the kids (and those who are kids at heart, too). Don't forget your camera!

    Please note: we know it can be a nightmare stuffing them into dress-up clothes, so give yourself and the kids a break. This is one holiday party where casual attire is recommended.

    Admission includes:
    * Unlimited rides at the amusement park, including the miniature train and carousel. (Pssst! Don’t tell the kids, but we have great new surprises all along the train route this year to delight the whole family.)
