NEW in 2019 families can make a fast pass reservation for greater flexibility in visiting Santa for holiday photos. The Fast Pass system will allow guests to choose a full hour time slot for their visit, not just one specific hour. Each hour slot is limited to 10 Fast Passes so that there are never too many appointments at one time. Guests will also pre-purchase photo packages, which will streamline the check-out process at the set, ensuring a positive experience for every guest. Visits with Santa are always free and each child receives a free activity book and candy cane. Santa’s Village is located between Gap and Bath & Body Works and is open daily from November 9th through December 24th.Looking for the perfect gift? Our mobile-friendly gift guide will have some great ideas when shopping for your friends, families, co-workers and more. In between visiting stores, the pop-up ice skating rink will be open throughout the season, with several nights of character skating. Admission is $10 per person and includes skates and a one hour session.

The whole season kicks off with our annual Tree Lighting Celebration on Saturday, November 23rd. This festive event includes a holiday concert with the Music with a Message band, from the Youth Renaissance Center in The Bronx, strolling characters including Mrs. Claus, character skating, a DJ, food trucks, and giveaways. The event takes place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and the countdown to light the tree is at 7:45pm.
