A new Santa workshop and more!
Santa is all about the experience and this year Scottsdale Fashion Square has again partnered with HGTV to present “Santa HQ.” Families are invited to experience the wonder of Santa’s workshop in the digital age while als getting Santa photos taken. One of the SMB Contributors, Renee and her family were guests at Santa HQ last weekend.
We were blown away by the magic and wonder HGTV creates at the Santa HQ!
First off, this is not your typical mall set up. You can actually go online and reserve a time slot for your visit. Make your reservation now by visiting Santa HQ. If you don’t have a reservation and are scared of waiting in the line, trust me when I say NOT to worry! Your kids will be entertained as you wait for your turn. As soon as you step into the magical Santa house, you have opportunities to find out what list you are on, create dancing elf videos and even explore the hidden elf world! My boys were captivated and we actually had to let other families go on and meet Santa ahead so we could explore a little longer.
Photos for the whole family
How often do you get a family photo? Santa HQ has you covered with a family photo opportunity right before you meet the Big Man. My boys were just thrilled to get called up by name to meet Santa. Aside from getting the cutest photos ever, Santa spent time talking to each boy and hearing them out. Or in my little guy’s case who is only two and not very talkative, he took the time to read his written list with him. We ended our visit with a photo package to take home and share with family and friends. The boys are still talking about meeting Santa and are counting down the days until he makes his big run and surprises them with something special just for them.
Thanks, HGTV, for making our Santa experience so memorable!

Shoppers are also invited to bring in an unwrapped toy and participate in Help Through Holiday Giving. Scottsdale Fashion Square hopes to gather 1000 toys to be donated to the Salvation Army Angel Tree.
