Stamford Town Center is offering a brand new Santa experience this holiday season. While it looks the same on the outside… on the inside it is much different than in years past because of the pandemic. But it’s really a lot of fun!
Santa is staying in the North Pole this year. The shutdown in March has him behind on toy production for Christmas Eve. But, he sent his helpers to make sure local children can still give him their holiday wishes.
My family had the opportunity to go this week and we really enjoyed it. Santa’s helpers are very welcoming, full of joy and the whole experience is so creative and different than usual that I honestly did not even compare it to a typical visit with Santa. We knew we weren’t going to get the perfect photo. Instead, we were going for a fun holiday experience that would make the kids smile and that we could enjoy as a family.
The set is a living room with blocks for the kids to sit on in front of the fireplace and TV where the magical portal brings Santa LIVE to you. Santa appears on the screen and your child can have a chat with him!
Monday – Sunday: 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.*
Santa will break for milk & cookies from 2 p.m. – 3 p.m.
*Set closed on November 26. Set hours on December 24th are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. with Santa breaking for milk & cookies from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Do I need an appointment?
