LAS VEGAS — Opportunity Village works diligently each year to improve the Magical Forest by introducing exciting rides, new foods and special attractions. This year was no different as they debuted food trucks, The Orbiter ride, and Elf The Musical. To wrap up the 2019-20 Magical Forest season, the park will host two very special character events geared towards children ages 13 and younger.

The event will include meet-and-greet opportunities with some of your favorite princesses, courtesy of A Magical Day Princess Parties & More and their magical surprise guests. Kids will enjoy cookies and cocoa (or milk) as they enjoy story time after they take part in a variety of princess-related activities and smile for professional photography provided by Las Vegas Baby Magazine.

On January 4th, at 5:00 p.m., Opportunity Village will be hosting A Galaxy Gathering … far, far away where children will join forces with some of their favorite characters from the Star Wars universe.
