Holiday Family Fun At Sesame Place: A Very Furry Christmas

Looking for something fun to do with the kids this Holiday season? Head to A Very Furry Christmas, at Sesame Place.

We made our way to Sesame Place in Langhorne, PA this weekend for their annual holiday celebration, A Very Furry Christmas. While it was definitely a little chilly, it was totally worth the trip! 

The entire park is brought to life during the holiday season with thousands of brightly colored, twinkling lights and decorations. The friendly furry cast of Sesame Street is also at the ready to put everyone in a festive mood!

When you enter the gates of the park, your immediately greeted with an enormous Christmas tree. It's more than your average Christmas tree though! The beautiful display springs to life several times throughout the day with lights, characters, and holiday carols, in the 1-2-3 Christmas Tree Show.
We arrived 45 minutes before the first Neighborhood Street Party parade was set to start (there are 2 most days - 4:30 PM & 8 PM).

While we managed to squeeze into a fairly decent spot to spectate, we definitely underestimated the large volume of visitors on the day of our visit. There was quite a crowd already lining the parade route, when we arrived. My best advice would be to find a good spot about an hour in advance, if you are visiting on a busy day.

Our youngest was delighted at the mere sight of Elmo and Cookie Monster and our older two children enjoyed it just as much. After the parade was over, we let the kids hop on a couple of the open rides. If possible, I would definitely recommend taking advantage of the "Abby's Magic Que" [additional fees apply]. It allows you to bypass the long lines for rides and offers up reserved seating at one show; Elmo The Musical Live. While there are 3 fun holiday themed shows offered throughout the park for A Very Furry Christmas, it can be challenging to navigate the long lines and wait-times in the colder temperatures {especially with with little ones}. So, Abby's Magic Que is definitely your best bet.

We did make our way into the "Elmo's Christmas Wish" live show, and we all had a blast singing along with our favorite furry friends! Check out the videos below from the show.  Be sure to visit our YouTube channel for more videos from the day.

Overall; there's tons of fun to be had [for the entire family] at Sesame Place, A Very Furry Christmas! We would definitely recommend a visit to this fun holiday event at Sesame Place.
