These are statements that we hear often about our Santa Experiences!  We can't put into words how much parents and children love this time with Santa.  Our experiences are not the typical "sit on Santa's lap and tell him what you want" experience!  They are interactive from the moment that Santa greets your child(ren). The family limit is set by Santa to make sure that the everyone has a great experience.  No lines and very relaxed.
