 “A great destination filled with Christmas cheer. A great trip for young & young at heart.  It’s [Bronner’s] a lot more than a Christmas store. I would take this tour again!” 

Daniel, Maplewood (A Frankenmuth Christmas 2018) 

Day 1 – Home to Ft. Atkinson, WI 

With bags all packed and in hand, we are ready to take an unforgettable Christmas themed journey. We’ll have breaks along the way and make our first stop in Ft. Atkinson, WI. Upon arrival we will check into the Country Inn & Suites, all dressed up in its Christmas finery. We will get settled into our rooms before heading to the Fireside Dinner Theatre. Our evening begins with their famous dinner buffet featuring many delicacies created by their chefs. We’re sure everyone will find an item or two to their satisfaction! Following dinner we will be treated to the spectacular production of “A Christmas Story: The Musical.” Ralphie wants only one thing for Christmas: an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle. “A Christmas Story: The Musical,” is the hilarious account of Ralphie’s desperate quest to ensure that this most perfect gift ends up under his tree this Christmas. It is based on the classic 1983 movie that has become a holiday tradition that millions wait for every year. The Fireside is one of America’s premier dinner theatres with superb professional musicians, memorable dining, spectacular shops and fabulous service.

If you’ve never been to the Drury Lane Theatre, you are in for a very pleasant experience! Classy and beautiful, it is famous for outstanding theatre productions. We will have a wonderful dinner before seeing “Mary Poppins.” Mary Poppins flies to the stage delivering whimsey, excitement, and memorable songs that will melt your heart.
