The Roosevelt New Orleans Makes Old Traditions New Again with the
Waldorf Wonderland Lobby and Teddy Bear Tea
Holiday Display Runs November 26 through January 6, Featuring Gingerbread Village; Teddy Bear Tea Schedule Also Announced

NEW ORLEANS - October 30, 2012 - The Roosevelt New Orleans will continue its tradition of offering a spectacular display of New Orleans holiday wonderland decorations that are as luxurious and memorable as the historic property itself, this season scheduled for Nov. 26, 2012, through Jan. 6, 2013.

The Waldorf Wonderland Lobby returns as the grand lobby is transformed into a canopy of white birch branches and thousands of twinkling lights.

A 6-foot by 12-foot gingerbread village depicting Storyland in New Orleans City Park, featuring 15 children's storybooks, 10 buildings, more than 20 storybook characters and a revolving carousel, all made out of candy and gingerbread, will be displayed inside Teddy's Café, located off the hotel's grand lobby.

The lobby also will be lined with Christmas trees decorated with bows and ornaments, poinsettias and other holiday-themed displays. The festive attraction is a favorite near and far among locals and guests and is free and open to the public.

"The Waldorf Wonderland Lobby is a must-see for visitors and locals alike," said Tod Chambers, general manager of The Roosevelt. "It's our way of spreading the holiday cheer and offering guests and visitors a memory that will last a lifetime."

The holiday delight, an attraction for everyone who visits New Orleans during the season, has been a tradition since the 1930s. Also adding to the holiday spirit is The Roosevelt's beloved Teddy Bear Tea, which returns Dec. 1 with a special new set that is sure to impress. The event hosts guests and their children for a special tea party featuring children's menu items, as well as traditional tea, a cash bar and menu for adults, plus complimentary free-flowing champagne. Children also will receive this year's commemorative Roosevelt Teddy Bear. Entertainment will include storytellers and trumpeters, as well as appearances by Santa, his elves and Mrs. Claus. Commemorative photos with Santa will be available at an additional cost.

Guests can participate in Teddy Bear Tea Dec. 2, 8-9, 15-16 and 21-23 in the Crescent City Ballroom, with seatings at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Regular admission tickets for Teddy Bear Tea are $59 for adults and $39 for children 10 years of age and younger, plus tax and gratuity. VIP tickets are $74 for adults and $54 for children. All tickets may be purchased by calling The Roosevelt's Holiday Line at (504) 335-3129. Children ages 3 and under will be admitted free of charge.
