Santa & Mrs. Claus will be visiting Lakeside Village this holiday season! Bring your camera for free photos with Santa.
This year, things will be just a little different. An appointment is required (bottom of this page) , this will help us limit the number of people in line, and shorten your wait time too. Instead of being at the tree, he’ll be near the roundabout at 1473 Town Center Drive, Lakeland, FL 33803 (near Sunglass Hut) .
We will have a Christmas set for families to safely take photos with Santa. Santa will be in the photos, however, he will be at a safe distance and will not allow touching or hugging for everyone’s safety. In an effort to let as many people see Santa as possible, each appointment is limited to around 3 minutes. We ask that one appointment be made per family. For everyone’s safety, Santa, Mrs. Claus, and any other event staff are prohibited from touching guests’ phones for photos.
SAFETY: For the health and safety of Santa and his elves, we’re asking that everyone in line please wear a mask. Masks may be removed only for the photo. We are requiring appointments to limit the number of people waiting in line at one time. We are asking that anyone in line please maintain their distance from other guests and any staff on site.
Our photo set will be decorated to look like a living room, Santa will be at a safe distance in the photos, either decorating a Christmas tree while children are watching, or Santa will be sitting on a couch reading to children while they sit on the rug. We will be sanitizing the area between each appointment, and Santa and Mrs. Clause will be changing their gloves on a regular basis.
Please choose ONE time slot for your entire group. We ask that you please be considerate of Santa and their team, and please do not attend your appointment if anyone in your party is not feeling well.
