Santa's Lodge isn't fancy. Our first impression was the lobby--dark and a bit overdone with décor, but I guess it is Santa's Lodge... The one desk person was in need of help, but had none. We finally got our room cards and proceeded to our...More

Is this for Santa's Lodge you just need your clothes. For Holiday World bring towels and swimsuits. Good shoes and lots of energy. I don't believe you can bring food in to the park.
