Enchant Christmas’s food and drinks are anything but ordinary. Several local food vendors attend this festive event bearing innovative “urban fare,” with a wide variety of cuisine and drink choices. One dining option, Pacific Counter, serves an impressive range of healthy meals. One of their past dishes was fresh, healthy bowls. One item was called Avocado Bomb! You can also dine at Santa’s corner where there’s a variety of German-inspired foods, such as bratwurst, pretzels, Pierogies, turkey legs, and more! But before heading back to the resort, you have to check out the ice bar and lounge. Guests can indulge in premier cocktails, mulled wine, spiked ciders, Enchant Hot Chocolate, local beers, and more! A friendly bit of advice: avoid eating before Enchant Christmas.
