--Families will enjoy searching for Fiona fairy statues in Fiona'€™s Fairyland
--Take holiday photos in the Hippo Hut, which will be decorated to provide a festive backdrop!
--More giant lanterns, including some that fit the soon-to-be-open Roo Valley theme, will be placed around the Zoo.
--Guests will feel like they'€™re blanketed by stars in the new, immersive '€œNorthern Lights'€ light experience.
--This is the last year for the 4D Theater and Polar Express. After PNC Festival of Lights ends on January 4, the space will be transformed into a new food and retail space slated to open in 2020.
