Make Your Holiday Memories at Georgia’s Lanier Islands

Enjoy an Evening of Enchantment at the 25th Anniversary of Magical Nights of Lights

For countless families throughout the Southeast for the last quarter of a century, Georgia’s Lanier Islands has served as a cherished part of their holiday traditions. Ever since the Magical Nights of Lights first debuted on November 20, 1993, it has been a source of joy and wonder for children of all ages — adding a little more holiday magic with each passing year. This year, the lakeside destination invites families from the Peach State and beyond to drive through seven miles of twinkling holiday light displays that wind throughout the scenic resort. Representing lasting holiday memories in the making, the 25th Anniversary of Magical Nights of Lights at Lanier Islands is open nightly from Nov. 17, 2017 through Jan. 3, 2018.

It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas…

In addition to old favorites like the twinkling lights of the shimmering Snowflake Bridge, a whimsical illuminated interpretation of the Wizard of Oz, and a sparkling sneak peek at the elves at work inside Santa’s Workshop, fans old and new are sure to delight in a sing-a-long with the beloved, newly refurbished and awe-inspiring “12 Days of Christmas” light displays and so much more at the holiday light extravaganza. With their children’s faces pressed up against the glass and holiday music filling the air, families can follow the animated lights to the Holiday Village at LanierWorld. While there, they can visit with Santa and his elves in Santa’s Workshop, take a keepsake photo with the Jolly Old Elf himself, shop for holiday gifts and have a special ornament personalized to hang on the tree back home. Outside the Workshop, guests can craft s’mores from marshmallows they roast over a roaring firepit, fend off the chill with a warm cup of hot chocolate, and delight in amusement rides that add an undeniable air of fun to the festive atmosphere.

Unlike other holiday light shows, Laner Islands prices entry to the Magical Nights of Lights by the carload, not by the person. Regular admission to Magical Nights of Light is just $45 per vehicle (up to 10 passengers) at the gate and $35 per vehicle when purchased in advance online. As thanks for their service and in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Magical Nights of Lights, Lanier Islands is extending a very special rate to military families to tour the lights. Both active and retired U.S. military personnel are invited to simply show a valid military ID at the resort gate to receive one car entry to Magical Nights of Lights for JUST $25.

There’s No Place Like Home (Away from Home) for the Holidays…

Visitors who wish to transform their night under the lights into an overnight stay will enjoy free entry to the Magical Nights of Lights as guests of the resort. Choose from a deluxe hotel room at the Legacy Lodge – a proud member of the esteemed Southern Living Hotel Collection, a luxury stay at the spacious lakeside Legacy Villas or a home-away-from home experience at the Legacy LakeHouses. Guests of the Lodge have two on-site restaurants from which to choose, as well as a year-round heated saltwater leisure pool, access to Legacy Kids Club activities and Kids Night Out, resort cart and bike rentals, state-of-the-art gym and so much more. As an early Christmas gift to its overnight guests, Lanier Islands provides a couple of holiday-themed accommodation packages for added savings.
