 We had been to Yankee Candle Village some years ago, but never during the Holiday Season.  It seems to be even more festive than when we were there in the summer.

This huge, flagship is so much more than just a store. It is a huge, family friendly venue, where the magic of the season seems to come to life. With more than 100,000 Christmas ornaments, over 200 fragrances, snow coming down every four minutes, a six-foot nutcracker, a huge reindeer that moves, model trains chugging around throughout,  and much, much more, it is really a destination. It can be a somewhat long day-trip from Long Island, about 190 miles. It took us three hours. If that is too much for a day trip, please put it on your list if you are headed up Route 91.

There are many accessible parking spaces throughout the very large lot.

Stone pavers lead to the wooden porch (with many benches) and the double glass doors. 

A lovely host greeted us and explained that there are wheelchairs and strollers available to anyone requesting one. You can even get a map of the store (that’s how big it is). There are twelve different areas. From watching animated figures putting on a “show,” singing characters celebrating the season, snow falling every four minutes, areas to make your own candles, design you own scents, and shop to your heart’s desire. It’s a wonderful mix where the whole family can eat, shop and be entertained. 

We made out way through more candles than you have ever seen in any one place, the Bavarian Christmas Village and Black Forest, General Store, Top Shop, Make-A-Bear Workshop, the Nutcracker Castle, Home, Kitchen and more that I have probably forgotten. We passed up the Ben & Jerry’s, cafe and bakery. There is also a brewery and Pizza Cafe within the Village.

The area where you can make your own candle, personalize your own candle, create your own scents, was particularly busy. If you are thinking of doing one of these things, it is probably best to get there as early as you can!

As we make our way around the areas, we notice a carney of flooring, from smooth concrete, to wood, to a sort of cobblestone. None of the people we saw in wheelchairs, or with carriages seemed to have any difficulty getting around. There is plenty of space everywhere (except for the people)! If you need a rest, there are some seats throughout and a great many in the cafe/market area. 

There are three sets of clearly mariked, multi-stall restrooms with accessible stalls, throughout the Village. The accessible stalls are large. There are baby-changing stations in each.

As in our previous visit, we suddenly realized that we had been here for almost two hours – and we hadn’t even made a candle!. It was a great holiday experience.

Yankee Candle Village is a unique venue with New England charm, fairy-tale fantasies, and a wonderful atmosphere!

As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website,, when planning a visit, to know about special events, so you can “know before you go,”
