In the background across the lake you can see some lights. That is the "North Pole Toy Workshop". You can take a 40 minute cruise that offers spectacular views of the holiday light displays. The most memorable point in the journey lies across the lake, as Santa awaits your arrival at the North Pole Toy Workshop where it magically snows each night! They wait to light up the "North Pole" until the boat goes buy. So we must have been looking just as a boat showed up. As after the boat leaves that area the lights go out again.
