Don’t Miss Christmas At The Anatole in Dallas #Giveaway #ChristmasAtTheAnatole

Christmas is all about making memories, and The Hilton Anatole is ready to provide just that. My family looks forward to visiting this hotel in Dallas each year for Christmas, and there’s good reason why. With decorations not to be missed, Christmas at the Anatole has a variety of activities that children will love.

We stayed in the hotel over the weekend, starting with a Christmas themed Marionette Puppet show, waking up to Breakfast with Santa, then going on a fun Scavenger Hunt around the Atrium! 

The Marionette Puppet show is always one of our favorites! My children stare at the stage for an hour, soaking in the hip Christmas music, while parents try to figure out how much of a talent it is to work those puppet strings! It’s definitely a show to see (make sure you go behind the scenes after the show!) 

Breakfast with Santa at the Anatole is my number one Christmas event in Dallas! The breakfast includes a buffet of eggs, pancakes, bacon, pastries, cereal and more.  While guests are eating, Santa and Mrs. Claus walk around, greeting children at tables, posing for pictures and noting the nice (or naughty) list.  The two then gather around the front of the crowd to read a story to the children before they are dismissed to the Scavenger Hunt!

The Scavenger Hunt is an activity not to miss.  Children are given a map of 10 stations, consisting of a hot chocolate bar, cookie decorating, crafts, face painting and more! (All included with your Breakfast With Santa tickets!)


Breakfast With Santa Experiences will take place on December 10, 11, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23.

    I would take my husband and two kiddos! It is our daughters very first Christmas and I can’t wait to see what she thinks about Santa and all things Christmas!

    Favorite Christmas memory would be the year that we had our son, we spent so much time on gifts for him and he could care less about any of it! He refused to open a single gift and wanted to go play instead!!!! It was our favorite because it reminded me the most important thing about Christmas is not gifts or wrapping paper but being together and surrounded by those you love!!!!!!

    Favorite Christmas memories….a tie between the year I got a stuffed skunk when I was little, my first married Christmas and decorating our own tree, my son’s 1st Christmas and all the Christmases since then with both of my kids. Each Christmas with them is a wonderful memory made.

  22. Amber Goddard says

    Favorite memory is decorating the Christmas tree. Looking at all the ornaments we had made in the past (or that year) and the ornaments we had brought home from traveling.

  23. says

    My favorite Christmas memory (technically post Christmas) was stepping off the plane after returning post deployment from Iraq to Germany and then on home stateside a few weeks later and having a wonderful belated Christmas with my Mom, Dad, and Brother who had waited for my return to celebrate. It was wonderful :)
