I am looking for dec 2013 and are undecided whether to go for the day or stay for anything from 1 to 5 nights maybe even going for Xmas.
Although cost is a consideration this is something that we may only do once and probably the most important factor in my decision would be the meeting with Santa. I want this to be the most magical thing for the kids ideally a woodland setting even better if you go on a sleigh ride and discover his woodland retreat and obviously not being rushed. I can pretty much work round anything else but if we did stay would prefer a decent room with 4 beds ( no double sofa bed for the kids to share)Can anyone help? Is a day really long enough or would such young kids struggle to fill 2-3 days with. Also which tour operators, locations and hotels should I consider or rule out?
