Food For Thought for a Most Memorable Visit image
Things to consider for an ultra successful visit:
  • Some type of grand arrival
  • Secure any pets, if necessary
  • Provide chairs or a bench for Santa and Mrs. Claus
  • Freshly charged batteries in the camera(s) and phones
  • Pick a desirable setting and background for photos
  • Discuss in advance any plans for book reading or story telling
  • Reserved parking near the entrance for Santa's land sleigh
  • Clearly label all gifts and discuss Santa's bag requirements ahead of time
  • When large numbers of children are involved, assign an honorary elf to help Santa with names, etc.
  • Distribute gifts just prior to departure
  • Eliminate surprises - make special requests prior to arrival
  • Pay Mrs. Claus or Santa upon arrival
