It’s no secret that we’re big fans of SkyPark at Santa’s Village (you can see all of our previous coverage here) as it offers a rustic outdoor escape all year round with extra special magic during the holidays. So when we found out you can now STAY over night in and amongst the magical alpine setting at the SkyPark Camp & RV park (in converted vintage AirStream trailers, no less!) we knew we had to give it a whirl.

MouseInfo was provided a hosted stay in exchange for a writeup on what a stay at the SkyStream Resort AirStream trailers have to offer.

SkyStream Resort

The SkyStream Resort is set within the SkyPark Camp & RV Park. There are six AirStream trailers nestled together into a small section within the camping park. Each trailer has its own picnic table and private firepit ready for s’mores making and weenie roasting. They share a communal camp kitchen inside a mini bus as well as camp-wide common area which includes heated restrooms with showers, a laundy room, a sink, and seating areas positioned around communal firepits. One designated parking spot near your AirStream is provided although an auxiliary lot is available with plenty of additional parking.

Far from roughing it, the SkyStream Resort experience is glamping at its finest.

The Views

Nature is all around you and aside from the views overlooking the gorgeous valley below, there’s wildlife and the verdant alpine landscape to take in.

Camp Christmas #1

To get into the Christmas spirit, we stayed in the AirStream trailer called Camp Christmas #1. It’s one of the larger of the AirStreams available and is decorated all year round with a bit of yuletide cheer.

Interior

True to its name. the rustic Christmas vibes here are incessantly charming. The queen bed boasts a DreamCloud matress while the sofa features two twin trundle beds. We didn’t require use of the overhead AC unit but the faux fireplace does function as a heater and it was just enough heat to keep us comfy once the temps dropped into the high 20s over night. The bedding was also quite warm and there was a small basket with additional lap blankets that came in handy when sitting outside by the firepits. Of course, you also have towels and a hairdryer to take with you to the communal restrooms.

The room also features a mini retro-style fridge that was stocked with bottles of water plus a Keurig coffee maker. The drawers were stocked K-cups for coffee, a kitchen lighter, and a few games (Candy Land and checkers and the Ugly Sweater card game). There was also a delightful book on the history of Santa’s Village.

Your eyes do NOT deceive you, there IS a leg lamp in the room just like the one from A CHRISTMAS STORY. For the full fantasy, there are also BB-guns in the park at the shooting range, just be careful not to shoot your eye out!

We couldn’t resist bringing some of our own Christmas cheer with our own Disney holiday decorations. We brought hot cocoa bombs and used the kitchen microwave to heat up the milk and prepare our popcorn.

Bathrooms

There are several communal restrooms, each with an individual toilet and shower. They are heated which was a blessing during our stay when the weather dipped into the low 30s. The showers do have a timer on them, you’ll get 6 minutes of shower usage before a 5-minute waiting period kicks in before they can be used again. Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are provided via wall-mounted fixtures. There is a dressing bench and plenty of hooks available, as well.

Mini Bus Camp Kitchen

A small bus has been retrofitted as a camp kitchen for SkyStream Resort guests. Inside, you’ll find a microwave, toaster, cutting board, and disposable cutlery. Additionally, a selection of communal cookware items are available including plates and bowls, cooking utensils, pots and pans. You are free to use them as long as you clean them up when you’re finished and return them. A picnic table is available here along with a BBQ.

Free Breakfast

Your stay at SkyStream Resort includes breakfast at Kringles Coffee & GIfts inside SkyPark at Santa’s Village! You are entitled to a free breakfast item (sandwich or pastry) and free drip coffee, tea, or hot cocoa. These are available one hour before the park opens and redeemable with a voucher in your AirStream upon check-in. This is a great time to take in the fresh air and snap some great photos in the park before the crowds enter. Paid admission into the park is required to stay after the park has opened.

We each opted for a breakfast sandwich which included eggs and cheese with choice of bacon or sausage served on choice of croissant, bagel, or English muffin. We couldn’t resist staying in the spirit of the season getting flavored hot chocolate. We found the combination of peppermint and toasted marshmallow together to be a truly enchanting combination! The location’s specialty drinks, lattes, frappes, etc. are all available at extra cost.
