Same Day Reservations:

The Mall at Millenia offers a Same Day Reservations to allow families to enjoy holiday shopping and dining while waiting to meet with Santa at Hollyville.

How it works:

  • Guests are entered for a Same Day Reservation once the wait time exceeds 30 minutes.
  • Guests’ name and mobile phone number are added to a reservation list.
  • Approximate length of wait time will be communicated.
  • A notification text will be sent when it’s time to return to the line.
  • Upon entering the line, the wait to see Santa is approximately 30 minutes.

Additional Information:

  • At least one person in your photo session must be present to make a reservation.
  • You may not reserve for another party.
  • Each reservation admits one immediate family.
    • Friends/neighbors/relatives (including aunts, uncles, cousins) if photographed, constitute a separate photo session and require their own reservation.
  • Specific times may not be requested, as the anticipated time to return to the line is determined by the number of guests who have arrived before you.
  • There is no cost, the system applies to all guests, whether purchasing photos or visiting with Santa.
  • Once the system is active (when line exceeds 30 minutes) all guests arriving must make a reservation to return later, there is no option to join the line prior to your designated time.

Helpful Tips For Your Visit With Santa:

The Santa set is open during all mall hours through 4pm on Christmas Eve.

  • Shortest wait time tends to be weekdays during the afternoon and early evening hours.
  • Mall doors open two (2) hours prior to mall opening.
  • Sunday mornings are the busiest and often reach capacity in early afternoon.
  • Reservations are issued once the wait time exceeds 30 minutes.
  • The Santa set typically opens with a minimum 2-hour wait time on weekends.
  • As the holidays near, expect wait times to grow to 5-hours or longer on weekends.
  • The Santa photo set closes when the mall closes.
  • Once wait time extends beyond mall closing time, guests are accommodated on a standby basis. A limited number of standby reservations will be issued and a visit with Santa is not guaranteed.


The art of photography incorporates the positioning and repositioning of subjects and props at the discretion of the photographer. This is a professional photography studio. Your entrance acknowledges your understanding and acceptance of this right.
