Ho-Ho-Ho! Santa Claus is coming to town.  Santa’s Winter Garden provides a festive background for your holiday photos. Take your own photos at the many photo opportunities around the set, free of charge, during mall hours or with Santa by donation during set times below.

How it Works:

  1. Make your donation of any amount at the welcome desk.
  2. Santa’s assistant will lead you onto the set to meet Santa.
