Tip #1: Bring your own skates
Although admission to The Rink is completely free, we do charge a small fee for skate rentals. If you'd like to avoid this fee, bring your own skates and skate completely free of charge! We won't ask admission fee and your skating time is completely unlimited - we won't kick you off the rink (unless we need to resurface it or it's closing time).
|Many people show off their customized skates that they brought from home|
We recommend that our skaters, particularly the younger among us, wear helmets to protect themselves on the ice. Although we do offer helmet rentals for $6, bring your helmet from home (a regular old bike helmet will do!) to keep the penny pinching going.
Tip #3: Leave your bag at home or bring a lock
As a safety precaution for all our skaters, we do not allow bags of any size on the ice. If you want to avoid paying the fee for our bag check service, we recommend that utilize our lockers, which are provided free of charge. To stay cost savvy during your trip, bring your own lock to avoid paying the small fee for a lock rental.
Tip #4: Check out Ice Bites
Once you work up an appetite skating and walking around the Holiday Shops, step inside and warm up in the Skating Pavilion for some snacks and treats at Ice Bites. This food option is perfect if you want to grab a quick bite to eat and only spend a few bucks. Or, bring your own from home.
Tip #5: Buy a Season Pass
If you're someone who knows you'll be skating often, the Season Pass is a perfect way to save some time and money while still taking advantage of all Winter Village has to offer. If you don't own your own skates but are wary of paying for skate rentals each time you visit, the Season Pass (for the full season or the half season) gives you a discount on skate rentals, VIP access to the rink, and a free lock to use for the season.
