Families of children with special needs are invited to enjoy a Santa experience with limited sensory distraction on December 8 from 8:00 am until 11:00 am. The event is free, but registration is required beforehand and can be accessed at galleriadallas.com/holiday
Galleria Dallas has minimized the impact of crowds by creating specially managed and curated experiences. When families arrive at Santaland, they’ll have their own elf, a special helper who will guide guests through the experience.
Within the experience, Galleria Dallas has moved Santa himself to a private, custom created study so that anxious children no longer have others watching their moment with the head elf. After a private photo opportunity with Santa, guests continue through gorgeous walk through moments until arriving at the image preview area. There is a special area for kids to write a thank you note to Santa with a quaint North Pole mailbox on site, while parents use the digital stations to select, edit, and purchase any photos they like.
