Santa has arrived in the most spectacular fashion at Fair Oaks Mall and we were there to welcome him and his elves to kick off the holiday season. Santa’s Flight Academy is now open, and kids of all ages are encouraged to go online to grab their official badges. Kids will love reporting to sleigh duty, because it’s a fun interactive experience to take part in as they wait in line to visit Santa.
This is the second year we’ve enjoyed helping Santa get his sleigh off the ground and my kids got quite comfortable spending time with Santa during a delicious breakfast at BRIO Tuscan Grille, before they headed downstairs to Gran Court West to break in his lap with their long lists of holiday toy requests.
Santa had such a great attitude and demeanor with the kids and he’s full of a jolly spirit which made our visit extra special. I highly recommend Fair Oaks Mall as your family’s stop to see the big man in his red suit. This location is especially great for family’s with very small children. This Santa is excellent with babies.
