SANTAtized Photos With The Big Man

In between checking that famous list of his, Santa Claus will be happy to stop and take some memorable, mask-free photos with your family. While it may seem a bit “Grinchy” that Santa’s lap is unavailable for sitting, the elves have whipped up some photo magic that will make it appear as if you’re standing right next to him!

On the photo set, a plexiglass barrier will be set up on Santa’s chair between the big man himself and the children. They will be able to have all of the same interaction and connection as normal, but without the direct contact. Plus, Santa’s elves have magically made the plexiglass barrier completely invisible in the photos.


All Aboard The Pearl Express Train

The Pearl Express Train decked out in its holiday best will be picking up registered children for free directly from the parking garage. Parents simply show their reservation and the train will transport their family to Santa’s workshop so make sure to reserve your space ahead of time!
