You don't have to go all the way to the North Pole to visit Santa's workshop. He's bringing the magic of Christmas to Toronto this month for the ultimate holiday experience.
You can book a private visit to Santa's Secret workshop, a pop-up shop at Toronto's Scarborough Town Centre this month. Not only could you go behind the scenes of Santa's secret workshop, but you and up to four friends could get a one-on-one meet and greet with the big guy himself.
The private visit includes a chance to hang out with Santa and some of his elves in a one-on-one experience. There will be a professional photographer on hand to capture some pictures that will be sent to you by email after. Beyond that though, you will also be allowed to take as many of your own personal photos as you want.
This is different than most Santa meet and greets, where you're often forced to buy an overpriced pic of you and Santa Claus. With this private experience, you can essentially have an entire Instagram photo shoot with Santa in the most beautiful Christmas room.
Another plus side to the visits is since they are by appointment only you don't have to wait in any lineups ever. Simply show up five mins before your appointment and then you'll have Santa all to yourself. It'll cost you, though.
A private visit for up to five guests costs $50. That may seem steep, but if you break it down that's actually only $10 per person. You may want to get there sooner rather than later though because the closer to Christmas we get the more expensive it becomes.
From December 17th to December 25th the cost of one of these private visits to Santa's workshop will be jacked up to $75.
The visits have to be booked in advance, which you can do on the mall's website. Scarborough Town Centre is also hosting other festive events right now like their regular visits with the mall Santa and a magical holiday market you can visit right now.
