Santa Claus has landed at Ontario Mills Mall!

This post is sponsored by Ontario Mills Mall

This one is for my fellow SoCal families! This past week I took my kiddos an hour west for our first Santa visit of the season + some holiday shopping at Ontario Mills, one of my favorite malls.  Santa has landed and is now ready to take gift requests and pose for photos.

Last year I had no desire to decorate for Christmas until the first week of December. I don’t know what the difference is this season, but the day after Halloween, I was pacing in front of my fall decor, debating whether or not to swap it out for green boughs, sparkly cone trees and grinning Santas. I caved a week later.

The holiday fever seems to have caught a lot of people early this year as my Instagram feed is already full of decor and seasonal events. Keep spreading that early cheer with a visit to Ontario Mills, Santa is waiting! Ontario Mills has a beautiful set up this year featuring a very sweet Santa and helpful staff ready to snap your photo.

Beat the lines to see Santa by going early in the season (like right NOW). Ontario Mills also offers Santa’s Fast Pass which allows you to make an appointment with Santa! How awesome is that – because who has time to wait in a line during the hectic holiday season? When you are online getting your Fast Pass, you can also pre-order your photo package.

Choose from four different photo packages ranging from $24.99 to $49.99. If you plan on displaying a Santa photo at home or giving them as gifts, festive holiday frames are available for purchase as well!

The very helpful staff at Ontario Mills take great photos that they print out immediately after. While I was there, she even asked me which photo I liked best, which in my experience doesn’t happen often – so thank you!

No personal photos allowed in the Santa area, but there are a few great photo opportunities around. The whole space is so festive and decorated perfectly for a quick Instagram shot or 5 – lots of big trees and chances for creamy bokeh!
