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

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.
