  • The Mystic Light Walk does contain lasers and strobe lights, but there is an option to bypass it. If someone in your party is sensitive to lighting effects in any way, we suggest not visiting Winter Realms. 
  • Is Winter Realms accessible to guests with mobility disabilities? Thanks to the flat pathways throughout the event that are paved in some areas, and covered by high-quality rubber mats in other areas, Winter Realms is wheelchair accessible. Some areas, like the snow park and picnic plaza are located just off of the path and on the ground which may or may not be covered in snow. While our dedicated crews work diligently to maintain these areas, pushing wheeled means of transport through them may be difficult. Click here for more information.
  • Once you have exited Winter Realms, you cannot re-enter.
  • Shoes with high heels or flat soles can be slippery and not recommended. For more on what’s best to wear, click here.
