Heraldic horns sound throughout Yosemite National Park's elegant Majestic Yosemite Hotel, calling guests to enter Bracebridge Hall. Come travel back through time to a Christmas of centuries past, where glorious music and sumptuous food are but part of America's best-loved holiday tradition.
In a manor hall with fifty-foot beamed ceilings and huge windows looking out to snow-clad mountains, this celebrated Yuletide extravaganza allows guests to travel to a Christmas that is rich in every aspect. In a perfect balance of the mystical mixed with mirth, this 3-1/2 hour holiday feast transports guests to old England as Squire Bracebridge welcomes all to "food and riches without measure, joining voices raised in festive sound. Let our conviviality abound!" A splendid array of singers and court characters tell the story of Lord Neville Bracebridge and his household, while guests are entertained and tended by an attentive Bracebridge staff.
