Welcome, Macy's Santaland 2017! Oh, how we've missed you! Of all NYC's amazing opportunities to meet Saint Nick, not a one can claim to be more iconic than Macy's Santaland at Macy's Herald Square. This year, we're happy to announce that wait times to see the big guy in red might be a little bit better. Visits with Santa are by reservation only, and reservations can be made here starting on November 20, 2017 (or call at 212-494-4495). Macy's Santaland remains free and open to the public.
As one of our favorite Christmas events for kids, we can definitely say the experience is worth a visit at least once (if not every year). You'll find epic displays and beautiful scenery, and Bryant Park Winter Village is also close by in case you'd like to do some last-minute shopping. Seeking even more holiday cheer? Plan a family movie night with our favorite Christmas movies for kids.
What is Macy's Santaland?
Macy's Santaland is a 13,000-square-foot holiday display and indoor landscape that makes your kids feel like they've entered the North Pole. You'll find caroling snowmen, reindeer, twinkling lights, trees and more (some absolutely awesome photo ops, even while waiting in line)! The winter wonderland-esque path to Santa is worth it: Kiddos can sit on his lap, share their ultimate Christmas wishes and either get a photo package from a professional photographer, or pause to let guardians snap a few pictures with their phones (no one will stop you if this is your preference).
