ZOOm with Santa

ZOOms with Santa can be scheduled every Saturday starting Nov. 21 until Dec. 19 between 2:00 and 8:00 p.m. Calls will last 7-8 minutes, depending on the number of children and questions for Santa. Your call will be recorded and emailed to you afterwards, so you'll have a lasting memory to keep and share on social media. You can even have friends and family join in on the call for some extra fun!

Schedule with Santa!

Please note:

  • After selecting your date, be sure to answer the participant questions to help personalize your experience.
