Macy’s Santaland experience is an immersive 13,000-square-foot display of all things Christmas and is an annual tradition at the Macy’s flagship store. This year, doors to the North Pole, and all those Christmas deals, officially open on Friday, November 25.
Each year, the eighth floor of Macy’s Herald Square location is transformed into a winter wonderland where you’ll find reindeer, elves, trees, and a bunch of photo ops for you and the whole family.
And since Santa’s such a busy guy, it’s required you make a reservation.
Just to be clear, the reservation is the time you will enter the line, not necessarily when you will meet Santa. Reservations will open five days in advance of the desired visit date to allow for the most access possible to guests wishing to attend in-person. You can make your reservations on their website.
Admission to Macy’s Santaland is free to the public but keepsake photos are available for purchase. If you don’t want to purchase your official photo with Santa, be sure to bring a camera or smart phone to snap some pics along the journey (although it is encouraged to buy your photo at the end of the experience no one will force you to do so).
Where: Herald Square, 151 West 34th Street, 8th Floor
When: Friday, November 25 – Saturday, December 24
Price: Free + cost of purchasing your photo
