On December 10, Warner Bros. Movie World held their annual White Christmas Community Charity Night, that launched the beginning of White Christmas 2015, and I was fortunate enough to attend and bring along some company (ty Marina Mirage).
Elf tip: Leave home early to arrive early, the traffic struggle is real!
The gorgeous and ginormous Christmas tree greeted us as we entered the park – not even the rain could dull its light. Colourful themed foil balloons and light sabers being sold on carts, the ‘snow’ falling gently all around and excited children and adults alike getting into the Christmas spirit. The entire Gold Coast SUNS Team also participate in the event; White Christmas being the the biggest community event of the year for them. The event allows thousands of the disadvantaged on the Gold Coast and their families to enjoy free entry to Movie World for the night, a free meal, the chance to get autographs and take photos with the SUNS players. I’m so glad I was able to go to this year’s Charity Night as you see how Movie World and their partners really give back to the local community; to those who need it most.
Okay, so maybe the regular White Christmas nights aren’t the same as the Charity night but there are still loads of the same cool things happening and mounds more to offer:
There’s heaps to see, such as the snow (don’t eat it, we’re not that advance just yet), the dazzling display of more than one million lights at 7pm, and the special themed parade at 8pm where all the Looney Tunes Charcters, The Gingerbread Man, Frosty, Santa’s little helpers and the big fella himself come out to play on spectacular Christmas floats and sing and dance to Christmas carols.
Elf tip: Grab a good spot for the parade, Santa’s helpers hand out sweet treats!
There are also heaps of magical things to do too which are included in your ticket: like visit the fairies in the fairy garden, take an Elfie, take awkward family photos with full on matching beanies, scarves and Christmas shirts – capturing the awkward is easier than expected, take pics with Santa and if you’re lucky, the Looney Tunes in their Christmas wear, and of course experience the best rides Movie World has to offer like the Superman Escape, Batwing Spaceshot, Scooby Coaster and the rides in WB Kids (weather permitting)! For an extra $28 for adults and just $13 for kids, you can also enjoy a delicious Christmas feast at Rick’s Cafe for event nights before Christmas Day, which include a traditional roast and Christmas pudding. You can also decorate a yummy gingerbread man for $6 – best part is you get to eat it and don’t have to clean up your mess! There’s also the Elf Club and the North Pole Pass that you can book! 😀
Elf tip: Go watch the Ice Age Christmas 4D adventure in the Roxy theatre – definitely one of the best 4D experiences.
Movie World’s White Christmas began on December 11 and will continue on selected days until December 31. Pre-booked tickets are selling quick so book online to guarantee you get a hold of the experience. For more information, check out their website here.
Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year. Excuse me while I turn on the a/c, make myself some good hot chocolate and watch Polar Express. 🙂
Until next time, stay fabulous ❤
