There’s nothing quite like the Santa’s Village during Christmastime. Between the festive decorations, colorful lights, and jolly music throughout the park, you’re sure to feel the Yuletide cheer. If you’d like to make your visit even more memorable, consider booking Breakfast with Santa or Tea with Mrs. Claus (spaces are limited). And don’t miss performances by our friends, Kids Imagine Nation, as they sing and dance to upbeat versions of your favorite seasonal songs. Check the entertainment schedule when you get to the park or download our free mobile app for showtimes.


When you arrive at the park, you’ll check in through the main entrance. Then, head to Santa’s House to reserve a time to see the big man himself. Elves will be standing by to assist you.

All reservations to see Santa must be made in-person and on a first-come, first-served basis. There are a limited number of reservations per day. Once they are filled, guests will be asked to wait in the Standby Line.

Please note that visits with Santa are not guaranteed. While we do our best to accommodate all guests in the Standby Line, the sheer volume of visitors means that Santa doesn’t always get to see everyone.

During your visit with Santa, our elves will assist with photos.

The holiday season is the busiest time of year at Santa’s Village.
As a result, wait times will be longer than usual.
Thank you for your patience.
