What should I expect from The Elf on the Shelf’s Magical Holiday Journey in Los Angeles?
Get swept away by the Christmas Spirit as you immerse yourself in an original story brought to you by the creators of The Elf on the Shelf.
At The Elf on the Shelf’s Magical Holiday Journey, you will walk and trolley through an outdoor enchanted elf-sized world with holiday surprises around every bend. Meet some of your favorite Scout Elves from last year as you embark on a quest to save Christmas, experience larger-than-life scenic and light installations and unforgettable yuletide entertainment.
This year you can also stroll through our brand-new outdoor Christmas Village where you can sweeten the season with holiday treats and gifts! Plus, lace up your skates and take a spin on our open-air ice rink. Don’t miss the chance to start a new, fun-filled holiday tradition with your family and friends!
Is the experience the same as last year?
