Gather with Santa
Our Santa photo set helps the whole family to get together for a photo while your kids and Santa talk! Your whole family can meet Santa for beautiful photos!

A Photo Experience for the Whole Family

Every night of our tours, Santa Claus will be waiting for you in his sleigh in Downtown Pensacola. Santa's sleigh has been redesigned for your whole family! Large groups can sit on presents outside of Santa's sleigh for the perfect photo.

Only one reservation is needed per photo group. Large groups or families who want several photo setups should reserve additional time. Guests with reservations are welcome to bring their own cameras and take photos and videos during their visit with Santa.

Get Your Reservation


No more lines!

Skip the line with a reservation time to visit Santa. Make your reservation online or stop by to see what times are available during the event. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to your reservation and check in at the photos table in front of Santa’s sleigh.

What if we miss our reservation?

We will do our best to work in late arrivals on the same night. Please expect a wait as we are often fully booked. If you need to change to another night, [/support](please let us know). A rebooking fee will apply.

Intrude Upon the Grinch

And of course, Santa’s favorite nemesis, The Grinch, will also be available for photo opportunities. Just like for Santa, guests can reserve their time to visit online or in person at Winterfest!

You will be led to the Grinch’s throne, located behind Santa’s sleigh. While he LOATHES visitors, the Grinch will reluctantly allow you to intrude upon his solitude and sit on top of a few trashcan seats for a photo.

Elves Await

You will be guided to meet one of Santa’s elves, who will be there with a list, ready to ask your children — and even parents! — what they want for Christmas. From there, the elf will guide your whole family to sit just outside of Santa’s sleigh, atop presents! Santa will read your Christmas wishes aloud with you before striking a pose to take photographs.
