Ready or not, here come the holidays. In fact, the Mall of America's 'Santa Experience' began taking reservations this week, and things are filling up fast.

A bit different from the traditional 'sit on Santa's lap at the mall photo experience' we've all come to know and love; the MOA 'Santa Experience' is a unique, appointment-based, and personal Christmas moment in time.

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 time 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 locations.

You basically get to customize the entire experience for your family, including choosing from several available Santas, picking the time & date that work for you, and choosing a photo package option and selections that you want. They even have select 'Pet Nights.'
