Christmas time is here! Well, at the time of this post, the holiday is still months away. That hasn’t stopped us from already starting to plan reindeer games for the kids, movie night for the family, karaoke and cocktails for the adults, and a Christmas dinner for everyone.
For the Elves in Training
There’s more to Christmas than presents and eggnog—think games, fun, and writing letters to Santa. How else is he going to know what we want for Christmas? We bring the reindeer games to the Elves in Training right here in the lobby!
Holiday Balloon Artist
Ever wonder how a long, skinny balloon twists and turns into a dog? We’ll see, step by step, how the magic happens when a balloon artist comes to visit. I hope the artist makes some cool giraffes and a cutlass (a pirate’s sword). What’s your favorite balloon creation?
Face Painting and Photo Booth
These two activities are being paired together because you will want pictures of the face painting. As soon as your little ones transform into an animal, superhero, or mythical beast, step into the booth or click a selfie on your cell phone! The memories will sure to bring smiles for years.
Letter Writing Station
One of our favorite memories as kids was writing letters to Santa. You sit down to carefully list what it is you want for Christmas because, according to you, you’ve been good all year long. So, yes, I deserve all the toys listed in this letter. Mom and Dad will back me up, right?
Sparkle the Elf
Sparkle has become somewhat of a legend here at the hotel. She’s the ringmaster of reindeer games. Make sure the kids DO NOT miss a visit from this playful elf! After the kids have their fun, Sparkle takes all the letters written to Santa and delivers them.
For Adults Who Love Singing and Getting Jingled
Of course, we’re assuming you’re old enough to drink AND staying at our hotel. If both apply, then this suggestion is for you. Also, if you’re wondering what it means to get jingled, it is slang for mildly intoxicated. Thankfully with karaoke, the song’s lyrics are provided so there’ll be no excuse to ramble through a song. All you’ll need is effort that is pot-valiant (a fancy term for “liquid courage”).
Fun for the Family
Christmas Movie Night
For one night we slow festivities down so families can gather and enjoy a Christmas-themed movie. Weather permitting, we host this movie night outside. If you haven’t been outside at night in Florida in December, the weather is typically divine. All the movies we’ve ever shown are family friendly.
A Christmas Feast for All
Rosen Inn International is a fun hotel to stay at during the holidays. We love the holidays and the joy it brings. Knowing you’re probably far from home when you stay with us, we love to create an environment that feels like home, which, of course, includes a hot, special Christmas buffet. Every year in the Fountain View Café we host a Christmas buffet in the afternoon. No reservations are needed. Simply show up, grab a plate, and enjoy a cornucopia of holiday favorites including meats, seafood, a smorgasbord of sides, and tasty sweets.

We’re still working on the details, so please check back soon. We’ll link to the list of events and menus from this blog as our plans solidify.
