Over the weekend, we attended an exciting media preview party for Gaylord Texan Resort’s SummerFest 2016 featuring Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland! We had so much fun kicking off the summer with some unique family-friendly entertainment!
This summer, whether you’re staying at the resort or just want to drive over for the evening, Gaylord Texan is going big with a variety of Wonderland-themed activities for kids of all ages. Our own little Alice couldn’t wait to get in on the fun!
We were immediately greeted by the Wonderland characters including the Hatter, the white rabbit, and the Queen of Hearts! The Queen of Hearts was definitely a highlight for our daughter. She was perfect for the role and told her to “curtsy in the presence of royalty!”
We enjoyed so many delectable treats including cupcakes, cakes balls, and ice cream with lots of toppings. The service was first-class!
The resort atriums and gardens have so much to offer including some magical sculptures, paintings, and displays that are perfect for photo opps! One of the highlights, however, is Alice’s 4D Wonderland Adventure where you travel through a vortex tunnel and wear 3D glasses for your own adventure. This was probably our favorite part! The spinning tunnel was really entertaining for our entire group!
We ended our evening with the Queen of Hearts Light Up the Night party which included more characters, face painting, and a balloon artist. The party was followed by the Breaking Through the Looking Glass 3d visual light show. Set to music, the Mission Plaza walls transform before your very eyes, and it is such a cool experience! The best part is that the party and light show are free AND it is all air-conditioned! I don’t know about you, but air-conditioned entertainment in Texas during the summer is a must for us!
You won’t want to miss Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland at Gaylord Texan during SummerFest 2016! It is such a worthwhile family experience. While you’re there, you might also like to attend the Hatter’s Tea Party, the This Way & That Way Scavenger Hunt, or better yet, get a Wonderland All-Access Pass! Be sure to attend SummerFest 2016 events and activities between May 27 and September 5.
