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 Holiday Inn Express, 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 “Elf the Musical!” Elf is a musical based on the movie by the same name. William “Buddy” Hobbs, a young orphan child, mistakenly crawls into Santa Claus’ bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. After discovering the baby, Santa and his elves decide to raise the child as an elf. Years later, Buddy finds out that he’s actually a human being and, at Santa’s prompting, heads off to New York City in search of his father, Walter Hobbs. Faced with the harsh reality that Walter is on the naughty list and his half-brother, Michael, doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his birth family and help New York City remember the true meaning of Christmas.
