Taking photos with Santa at the mall just got a bit easier for 2015: in many areas you can now reserve your time and date online.
MySantaExperience.com announced it is accepting reservations for appointments with Santa at 260 malls nationwide.
The program even works for pets in select locations on designated nights.
Customers who book their appointments online before December 12 can receive up to 30% off photo orders and a $25 coupon good for holiday cards and other products at TinyPrints.com.
For an additional minimum $1 donation during the photo visit, parents can opt to have a personalized letter from Santa sent to their child. Proceeds from the donation go to Adventures in Movement, an organization that helps children with special needs learn through the use of music.
WorldWide Photography is the provider of Santa’s new online booking system, which is also smartphone and mobile compatible and lets users check availability on-site.
“The new reservation system will make that wonderful Santa experience even more convenient for visitors,” said Denise Conroy, President and CEO of Event Photography Group, in a news release.
“Being able to make online reservations sooner rather than later gives our customers more flexibility to plan before the busy holiday season. Through our partnerships with the top mall developers across the country, we are pleased to offer this streamlined experience to the more than 1.1 million consumers visiting My Santa Experience locations across the country.”
