Over 20 years experience

The Santa Experience was created in 2007 after years of growing popularity and LONG lines. The Santa Experience introduced a Santa visit by scheduled time slot to help reduce the wait time.

The Santa Experience works tirelessly to share the spirit of Christmas by creating a unique, more private and quality Santa interaction for families and children of all ages.  We are not a walk-through “winter wonderland” or “light extravaganza” with a high budget set and decor.  We focus on what children care about most…their visit with Santa.  Our genuine Santas bring an unparalleled level of talent, warmth, and positivity to make all visitors feel special when they visit our personally decorated store locations.  Countless families have made The Santa Experience a holiday tradition, returning year after year and growing up with the same Santa.

We invite you to embrace the magic and create memories that will last for years to come!

How it works

  1. Choose a Santa and schedule your appointment.
  2. Arrive at your Santa Experience location and check in for your appointment.
  3. Join the waiting area.  There may be a short wait (up to 30 minutes) as your appointment is in a time slot with other families.  It’s almost your turn to see Santa! Do you remember what you’re going to ask Santa for?
  4. Time to see Santa! Relax and enjoy a unique interaction and more private visit with Santa. Interacting with Santa is typically 3-5 minutes long depending on the age, number of kids and/or how the visit is going.  Sometimes longer, sometimes less.
  5. View the photos and video of your Santa visit with the assistance of a Santa helper.
  6. Choose from a variety of Christmas merchandise: Frames, snow globes, ornaments, keychains, etc. We’ll frame and assemble for you in store.
  7. Purchase your photos and merchandise.
  8. Merry Christmas!  See you next year!
