Open every year since 1964, we continue the tradition so many families look forward to each year. See what it’s like up at the North Pole, where Santa’s elves are busy building, repairing, polishing, baking, tending reindeer, and all of the other chores that go into making Christmas happen. You’ll hear carols being sung by our Fantasyland School children’s choir and the figures in the Shadow Boxes The aromas of peppermint, cookies, and chocolate hang in the air. Be sure to see the trains upstairs in the Lincoln Park Train Club.

Make your visit with us even more special by taking a few moments to chat with Santa himself!
