Jewelry & Jeans: The Best Santa Experience at the Awesome SantaHQ

The Best Santa Experience at the Awesome SantaHQ

Tuesday, December 3, 2019

This really is the most wonderful time of the year. There is something so magical about all the lights, the sparkle, the trimmings and good cheer. We always start listening to Christmas music early to get us in the spirit. I just love everything about Christmas and of course, the boys do too, and I just know Keira will as well. We always kick off the season by a visit to see Santa with our annual trip to the Santa HQ event at Fashion Fair Mall

I have been taking the boys to the Santa HQ at Fashion Fair for 4 years and each year they have the best Santa. He was so patient and engaging with the boys, read to them when I was checking out (perk of going early and not having a line!) and looks incredibly realistic. 

Gone are the days of waiting for hours in line only to have your kiddos tired, frazzled and checked out. You can spend less time in line by purchasing a Fast Pass. You can select the date, a 30-minute window of time to use Fast Pass, and pre-pay online. Talk about easy. Plus, Santa HQ offers so many activities for your kids from checking if you're on the naughty or nice list, making your own elf ID, or even transforming into their very own elf in the elf mirror.  You also get two seperate photo opportunities; one with Santa and one at a winter wonderland backdrop and the photos are ready for you to view and order the minute you're done.

Best of all, the Santa is AH-MAZING. He is always so patient, kind and sweet with the kids.  He greeted the kids before we even started, listened to each and every wish while on his lap and even read them a story at the very end since there weren't any other kids waiting to go next. 

Check out our vlog about this years visit. 

In addition to the traditional Santa experience there are several other events held at Santa HQ including a sensory experiences with accommodations made to support the sensory, physical, and developmental needs of this special audience, the yappy hour where fur babies can also meet and take pictures with Santa and even an opportunity to meet some of Santa's elves.

We love this little tradition of ours. What's one of your favorite traditions? Be sure to add the Santa HQ experience to your Christmas bucket list this year. I promise, you won't be disappointed. You can score reservations ahead of time HERE with their Fast Pass opportunity so you can spend less time waiting and more time enjoying.
