Plan ahead tip: Make an appointment to see Santa so you don’t have to wait in the long line! (Kinda like the Fast Pass in Disney World!) Yes, there is a $10 non-refundable fee. However, if you were planning on purchasing photos anyway, your $10 fee is going straight to the purchase of your photo package!

Not worried about the long line? Check out Santa’s schedule here! It’s always free to see Santa!
