Rosen Hotels & Resorts Holiday Buffet and Events

There’s no better place to celebrate the holidays than at Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista. Every year we treated guests and family to an amazing line up of activities, events, live performances, and celebrations. This year we’ll feature many new activities, which are listed below. One will be to have photo opportunities during our holiday buffets. Take some fun pictures with Patches, our 7 ft. scarecrow, at Thanksgiving. During our Christmas dining event, celebrate Grinch-mas with a Who-ville themed buffet starring the Grinch himself. We’ll have photo opportunities with the Grinch every half hour during the buffet. Don’t procrastinate. Make plans now to spend some time celebrating with the Rosen family!

Holiday Events Calendar

Letter Writing to Santa

December 1 – 24 | Hotel Lobby

In this age of emails and texts, letters are still important. Especially when you’re asking the jolly man from the north pole what gifts you want for Christmas! Engage in the time honored tradition of writing a wish list. We’ll make sure Santa Clause receives your letter.

Visit with Sparkle the Elf

December  2, 9, 16 | 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. | Hotel Lobby

If you thought Santa’s crew of elves just toil away making toys in Santa’s Shop, then you and your kids need to meet Sparkle! Enjoy reindeer games for the family with the jolliest of elves, Sparkle!

Face  Painting

December 3, 10, 17 | 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. | Hotel Lobby

During the holidays, we do more than decorate Christmas trees and the hotel. We like to have fun playing make believe which includes face painting for the family!

Balloon Artist

December 4, 11, 18 | 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. | Hotel Lobby 

Our balloon artists will have you captivated with every twist and turn of the balloon. Will it turn out to be a hat or a giraffe? Only time will tell. Even more amazing is how the artist can bend the balloon without popping it!

Dinner and a Movie

December 5, 12, 19 | Time TBD | Boardwalk Buffet 

A cute holiday vacation date or quality time with the family, that’s what Dinner and a Movie can be for you. We’ll list show times and the movies on schedule once.


December 13 and 20 | 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. | Comfort Zone Bar & Grille

Be merry and jolly with friends during our nights of modern caroling, aka karaoke! There’s no better combination of specialty cocktails, revelry, and song to get any soul in the holiday spirit.

Super Secret Guest Appearance

December 24 | 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. | Boardwalk Buffet

Someone important will make a guest appearance Christmas Eve to all enjoying breakfast. It’s kind of a big deal, so we have to keep this one a secret. But we promise, it’ll be worth the surprise!
