Santa Access Tickets:

The Mall at Millenia offers its Santa Access Ticket system once again to allow families to enjoy holiday shopping and dining while waiting for their turn to meet with Santa at Hollyville.

How it works:

  • Guests will receive a Santa Access Ticket if the wait time exceeds 1-hour.
  • The numbered ticket indicates an approximate time to return and enter the line.
  • A screen at the line entrance indicates ticket numbers accepted for the time-frame of entry.
  • Upon entering at the recommended time, the wait time to see Santa is approximately 30-minutes.

Please Note:

  • Santa Access Tickets are not a reservation system, reservations are not accepted.
  • Tickets are provided at no cost as a first come, first served basis. Santa Access Tickets apply to all guests, whether visiting with Santa or purchasing photos.
  • When the wait time exceeds 1-hour, all guests are provided a ticket to return at a later time. Only ticket numbers indicated on the screen will be accepted for line entry and numbers that have not yet appeared on the screen will not be accepted.
  • At least one person from your photo session must be present to receive a ticket.
  • Each ticket admits one immediate family and only one (1) ticket will be issued per person/immediate family (A ticket may not be collected for another party).
  • Friends/neighbors/relatives (including aunts, uncles, cousins), if photographed, are considered a separate photo session and require separate tickets.
  • A ticket is required to enter the line. If lost, a new ticket will be issued. The new ticket number will be based upon the tickets currently being issued by the greeter.
  • The anticipated line entry time is determined by the number of guests that arrived before to you.If the wait time extends beyond mall closing time, a visit with Santa is not guaranteed.
  • Please plan to arrive a minimum of 2-hours prior to mall closing to allow a time for guests who are in line. In December, a minimum of 3-hours prior to mall closing is recommended. A visit with Santa is not guaranteed when the wait time extends beyond mall closing.

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