Our Favorite Holiday Tradition with Enchant Christmas

Are you located in the Seattle, St. Petersburg, or Washington DC areas, or traveling to these areas this holiday season? If so, this blog post is for you! My boyfriend, Josh, and I attended our first Enchant Christmas in Seattle last holiday season during its first year in Seattle and immediately fell in love with it and knew it was something we would be doing every Christmas season.  We were so excited when we heard they were coming back to Seattle again this year!

So, what exactly is Enchant?

Enchant Christmas is an actual Christmas wonderland maze located at T-Mobile Park in downtown Seattle (along with Washington DC and St. Petersburg this year) and is the most perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit. There are seriously so many things to love about attending during the holiday season and I cannot wait to share with you all the things we love about making this a special part of our holiday season.

Reason #1: The Staff Are Some of the Most Friendly People

Walking into Enchant is like walking into the North Pole, everyone is so happy and friendly and is such a warm and inviting environment to come into and spend your evening. The staff is also incredibly helpful if you ever have any questions or need anything!

Reason #2: It’s Absolutely Beautiful!

The entire maze is full of Christmas lights in every single form you can imagine: hanging string lights, lit-up Christmas trees, and other decorations, and there’s even an ice rink “enchanted forest” you can go ice skating through too! It’s the most beautiful setup of holiday lights I’ve ever seen and is so dreamy and so magical, not to mention also super Instagrammable for the holiday season!

My favorite part each year is the hanging string lights section, it’s super pretty!

Reason #3: They Play Christmas Music

Throughout the entire ballpark, they are playing Christmas music to enjoy while walking through the maze and taking in all of the lights and beauty. Christmas music is some of my favorite music ever and I just can’t get enough of it during the holidays. So fun to listen to while enjoying a fun Christmas-y evening!

Reason #4: It’s More Than Just A Maze!

Outside of the maze itself, walking through the main floors of the ballpark where you would normally get ballpark concessions, it’s like a little Christmas market! There are so many little booths and pop-ups of hot chocolate stands, little gift shops, pictures with Santa station, food carts, and even a little Build-a-Bear pop-up workshop to build your own Christmas stuffed animal decoration (along with even more beautiful holiday lights lighting up the entire walkway)!

Reason #5: They Have Themes Each Year!

One thing that I thought was pretty cool about Enchant is that each year there is a different theme that switches off between the cities hosting the event. This year’s theme in Seattle is Mischievous, following the theme of an elf character and the enchanted forest.

So fun if you plan on attending each year, you get to experience something a little different each year you attend!

I had the incredible opportunity this holiday season of partnering with Enchant Christmas in Seattle and it is by far one of the best collaborations I have had the opportunity of doing throughout my blogging career so far! Josh and I attended Enchant two nights this year instead of one-night last year and we had so much fun both times we attended and cannot wait to attend again next year!
