Discover the Essence of Christmas Magic

The Candy Cottage of Christmas Magic, discovered many, many years ago nestled inside the trunk of a Christmas Tree, has a sweet and storied mythology. Its sole purpose is to help guests find their own Christmas magic, unique to each person’s particular taste.

Over the years, the cottage has been flooded with magical sugar pouring in at its seams; the only way to save the cottage from decay is for the cottage workers to take the sugar, magically turn it into edible candy, and give it to all who enter.

Each holiday season, people travel far and wide to delight in the cottage’s magic, and they leave feeling the holiday spirit at its sweetest, eager to share their festive finds and feelings with everyone they meet.

Immerse Into a Swirling Sugar Rush Fantasy Unlike Any Other

As the first stop on the sugary adventure, guests of all-ages enter The Candy Cottage of Christmas Magic and get their fill of delicious discoveries inside the cozy cottage.

The story then takes them on a memory-making magical holiday hunt only possible at Rockefeller Center, where kids and kids-at-heart alike connect with the childhood joys of Christmas across the storied New York landmark campus.

The Christmas cheer is topped off back inside the cottage in a truly enchanting memory-making moment that wonderfully wraps the most perfect way to experience NYC this holiday season.
