Santa will be sitting in his big chair in Center Court and wants to hear your wishlists and take photos safely! Our Photos with Santa set will allow for social distancing. The kids (or the whole family!) will be positioned beside Santa for all photos, at whichever distance is comfortable to you and your family. Kids may share their wishlists with Santa from this safe distance as well. To prioritize the health and safety of everyone all season, Santa and his elves will be following all state mandates and face covering policies. Guests will be able to remove their face covering for the photo.
Before Your Visit
While we love the tradition of visiting on Christmas Eve too, an early visit in November will reduce your wait time AND give Santa more time to gather all of the gifts in December. Reservations for Photos with Santa are not available. Thank you for planning in advance with us this season!
After Your Visit
As you shop, know that many stores are locally-owned businesses who appreciate your support this season. We have worked very closely with the local health officials and our retailers to ensure the highest level of safety during your visit. Scroll to the bottom of this page for more information on our safety and sanitization protocols.
