Where do I find directions to Fantasy In Lights?
If you are visiting for Fantasy In Lights, use the Robin Lake Beach entrance located on US Highway 27.  We recommend using the Inn address for Google Maps.  The Beach entrance is located just North of the Inn,  17800 US Hwy 27 Pine Mountain GA 31822.  Overnight Resort Guests, review your reservation confirmation for check-in location.  Resort Guests may use complimentary shuttle service to Christmas Village to enjoy Fantasy In Lights. 

How do I travel through Fantasy In Lights?
Guests can choose to see the lights in an open-air Jolly Trolley, the most popular option and our recommendation, or drive their personal vehicle. If you ride the Jolly Trolley, masks are required. If you drive your personal vehicle, you will be routed back to the Beach area.

What is a time slot? When do I see the lights?
Time slots are used to manage the flow of guests.  Time slot listed on your ticket is not the time you will see the lights.  You may enter the line anytime within the hour displayed on your ticket, or 15 minutes prior (e.g. 6 p.m. ticket holders can get in line as early as 5:45 p.m. and as late as 7 p.m.).  The Jolly Trolleys run continuously.  If you arrive after your time slot, we’ll accommodate you as well.

Are tickets per person or per vehicle?
Fantasy In Lights tickets are per person.  Each person riding Trolley or riding in a personal vehicle must show a ticket. Children ages 2 and younger are admitted at no charge and will not require a ticket. Please be sure to specify children’s ages when ordering.

What are the Fantasy In Lights hours of operation?
Fantasy In Lights show begins at 6 p.m. The Christmas Village located at Robin Lake opens daily at 4 p.m. and closes one hour after the last trolley departs. Tickets are sold on the hour for Jolly Trolleys and the half-hour for personal vehicles.  Advance purchase is recommended.  For same-day purchases, tickets are based on first-available time slot. Ending times flex daily based on volume of ticket sales.  We try to accommodate everyone but each evening at some point there is a “last trolley” time and a “last vehicle time.”  It does take approximately one hour to see the lights.

What are the Gardens hours of operation during Fantasy In Lights?
Your Fantasy In Lights ticket also includes one complimentary admission to visit Callaway Gardens during the day between the date of your visit and the end of the Fantasy In Lights season (Jan. 4, 2021).  The Gardens are open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. during this Season.
