That’s when the zoo really sparkles, with giant glowing animals and every-color-of-the-rainbow holiday lights for you to discover, all set around an epic “disco ball forest.” Grab a hot cocoa and your phone – the selfie ops are strong with this one.

Glowing animals welcome you on an unforgettable nighttime journey that includes the world’s largest illuminated pop-up storybook, a magical disco ball forest, giant glittering snowflakes, and a twinkling tunnel filled with dynamic swirls of color.
