Titanic Fantasy Princess Brings New Holiday Magic to Branson
Legend has it that Missouri's ancient Ozark Mountains are home to blithe spirits and woodland fairies, often sensed but seldom seen. Just in time for the holidays, the Titanic Museum Attraction will bring an enchanted forest to life with help from a mystical Fantasy Princess. The magic begins Thanksgiving Weekend Thursday November 28 and continues every Wednesday through Sunday to December 29.
"Our Fantasy Princess will be here soon to greet little girls and boys and help make their holiday dreams come true," announces John Joslyn, expedition leader of the first private exploration dive to Titanic and owner of the Titanic Museum Attraction. "She will embody the holiday season's magic and mystery shared by children of 1912 and today."
The Titanic Fantasy Princess is this year's beautiful addition to the annual Titanic Christmas Winter Wonderland, which features thousands of holiday lights, Edwardian-style decorations, costumed merry-makers and a Gift Shoppe brimming with one-of-a-kind selections. Also available is a magical photo op with the princess herself.
"Every day we remember and honor the men, women and children who sailed on Titanic, but this is especially so during the holidays. You'll truly experience what a Titanic Christmas voyage might have been like 100 years ago," says Joslyn.
