I recommend that you buy tickets ahead of time to ensure you can go. They only have a certain amount allotted for that evening!
I'm trying to get us dinner reservations for 5:30 at the Piedmont room. However if I cannot get us reservations we'll just eat at a local establishment near by.
Depending how many sign up, we can make a central spot to meet up and convoy to Pine Mountain!

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.

Overnight Guests, review your reservation confirmation for lodging check-in location. Resort Guests may use complimentary shuttle service to the Callaway 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 you can choose to drive their personal vehicle. If you ride the Jolly Trolley, your ride will start and end from the Trolley Loading area in the Callaway Christmas Village. If you drive your personal vehicle, you cue up your vehicle in our car cue lot and will be routed back to the Callaway Christmas Village at the end of your ride.
What is a time slot? When do I see the lights?
Time slots are used to manage the flow of guests and vehicle traffic. Time slots are listed on your ticket and will display a loading timeframe. You may enter the loading 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.). Trolleys, and vehicles will go into to the show on a flow during the ticketed time slots. Please arrive during the time slot listed on your ticket to avoid any show disruption, there is a 15 minute grace period honored at the end of each ticket time slot.
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 for entry to the event. 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. Tickets will be available for purchase on site in the event you need to purchase any additional tickets.
What are the Fantasy In Lights hours of operation?
The Callaway Christmas Village located at Robin Lake Beach opens daily at 4 p.m. and closes at 10 p.m. each night. Fantasy In Lights drive-through show begins nightly at 6 p.m. 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. **We recommend later timeslots come early to enjoy the Callaway Christmas Village before closure, as later timeslots may arrive back to the beach after Christmas Village closure.
