ONCE UPON A CHRISTMAS

Forget the lines at the mall, waiting for hours for a less than dazzling few seconds! Our personalized Santa Experience promises that Santa will know ALL about your children the moment they enter the room, from their names to what they got last Christmas... even their reports from the Elf on the shelf! They'll have no doubt that they just met the one and only Santa Claus... and hey, you may even leave a believer yourself!

Tucked away on Balboa Island lies a magical portal straight to the North Pole! Santa Experiences will never be the same once you travel to the workshop with us! Come see why our magical, personalized Santa experience is unlike ANY other!

First, meet and talk to Santa's reindeer in the North Pole Reindeer Barn. Next, a magical hidden portal will open before your eyes to transfer you directly into the Elf's workshop & help them build a special toy before finally heading into Santa's living room where he waits for you by a cozy fire! Prepare to be amazed all all Santa knows about your little ones & see their reactions in this one-of-a-kind, magical holiday experience like no other!
