Each year the Hilton Anatole transforms its outdoor area into a winter wonderland. This year's North Pole Texas runs from Nov. 26 to Dec. 24. Kids can write letters to Santa at the North Pole mail room, jump in the Giant Snowman Bounce House, decorate cookies in Mrs. Claus' Kitchen, attend an elf academy, build a take-home Teddy Bear at the Toy Workshop, dance at the Reindeer Dance Party and tour the North Pole Mission Control Station. Train rides, light displays, s'mores and face painting round out the experience. Overnight hotel guests receive 30 percent off the price of admission for North Pole Texas.
In addition to exploring the North Pole Texas, the Hilton Anatole also offers Breakfast with Santa. Each weekend from the end of November until Christmas Eve, Santa and Mrs. Claus will host a breakfast which includes all the morning-time favorites like chocolate chip pancakes, Belgian waffles, omelets and assorted pastries. While the little ones are noshing, Old Saint Nick will make his entrance and greet each table before he reads the group a holiday story.
