Plan Your Enchanted Evening


Enchanted Forest of Light is a one-mile path through 10 lighted areas, and takes about 90 minutes to complete. It is accessible for strollers, wheelchairs and mobility assistance devices. We recommend wearing walking shoes. Please remember, Enchanted is a rain or shine event, so dress warmly. And bring an umbrella, if needed. We encourage photos. Selfie sticks are OK, but please no tripods.
