My kids are huge Sesame Place fans and we have already visited in the summer and during their Halloween Festival. But we hadn’t visited during Christmas time and my kids were so excited. Before we left, we checked out their website and planned all the things we wanted to do during a Very Furry Christmas! Even before you enter the park you are surrounded by Christmas spirit. The walkway to the ticket counter is filled with multicolored Christmas trees and there was a giant toy soldier Cookie Monster and Elmo greeting us. We couldn’t wait to get in the Christmas spirit with our favorite Sesame Street friends.

Sesame Place A Very Furry Christmas Activities

Our first stop once we entered the park for a Very Furry Christmas was to check out the giant Christmas tree in the center of the park. It was covered in lights and even though it was still light out the tree was impressive.


Then it was time to check out some rides. My kids love all of the rides at Sesame Place but their absolute favorite is the roller coaster, Vapor Trail. So that was our first stop. We also found time to ride Elmo’s Free Fall, The Count’s Swing, and Oscar’s Rusty Rockets.

My kids could have spent the entire day on the rides but we didn’t want to miss out on all the Very Furry Christmas fun! We made it to the Elmo’s Christmas Wish Show. Elmo isn’t sure what to wish for when he sees the Christmas star, so some of his friends help him out by telling him their wishes. Cookie Monster wishes for cookies (Of course!) and Grover wishes to fly with the reindeer. Everyone shares their wishes by singing and dancing to some of our favorite Christmas songs. In the end, everyone gets a chance to make a wish on the Christmas Star!

We also made sure to see the Neighborhood Street Parade during the Very Furry Christmas! All of your favorite Sesame Street characters join in the parade, singing and dancing about Christmas. Even Santa makes an appearance in the parade. We rode Santa’s Furry Express. On this train ride, we got to watch the Twiddle Bugs make Christmas cookies for Santa.


What would Sesame Place Very Furry Christmas be without the characters? You can find character meet and greets throughout the park (we saw Bert and Ernie, and Cookie Monster), and of course Santa is there too. New to Sesame Place this year is Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and some of his friends. We ended our trip to Sesame Place by watching the light show at the giant Christmas tree. It was so fun to listen to our favorite Sesame Street characters sing Christmas songs while the lights flashed to the beat.


We loved our visit to A Very Furry Christmas and plan to make it a yearly tradition. Our advice is dress warm since almost every attraction is outside. But you won’t notice the cold for all the fun you’re having! (Or take a Starbucks/hot chocolate break!) There are also heaters located throughout the park in case you need to warm up a little.
