Gateway’s Festive Play Park inspired by Disney

Open during the peak holiday season, Gateway’s Festive Play Park inspired by Disney is a delight for children, from tots to tweens. A panoply of play activities can be accessed with a single ticket per session. The Play Park hosts a mix of kids activity zones, the towering Disney Chari-tree and fun photo booths for capturing unique merry holiday memories.

A haven designed just for the littlest adventurers, the Soft Play Zone is a toddler’s play paradise! Soft moulds in numerous shapes and sizes create an enchanting space for toddlers to explore, crawl, and giggle. It’s a joyful curious corner where wonder and pure, unbridled fun challenge motor skills and burn energy.

Kids of all ages can have a blast aboard the Festive Disco Bus where Disney’s beloved songs will have them dancing, playing and singing along. A joyful experience capturing the season’s spirit, this ‘bus’ trip is one of laughing, bonding and creating unforgettable holiday memories.

The festive LEGO Build Zone is a hotbed of creativity, where children can build their dreams, brick by brick. Embracing the holiday spirit, kids can construct their Christmas fantasies, from whimsical winter scenes to merry holiday characters, using LEGO.

The Christmas Creative Hub is a craft area and a crafting enthusiast’s bliss. A treasure trove of Disney-themed crafting delights featuring vibrant colouring equipment, glitter glue, buttons, and eclectic craft materials summon unfettered self-expression. From collages to sculptures and everything in between, kids pursue their own creative direction.

Visitors can also experience the towering Disney Chari-tree, proudly presented in association with VISA and Investec, with support from Toys R US, at the centre of the Park. Decorated with popular Disney characters as plush toys, the Chari-tree is an opportunity for visitors to spread festive joy and generosity through the Reach for a Dream Foundation.

The Play Park inspired by Disney opens daily from Friday 8 December to Sunday 31 December.

The first 45-minute session starts at 10 am and the final session of the day runs from 6 pm. The Park will be closed on Christmas Day, 25 December.
