The holiday season is right around the corner, which means Macy's Santaland is on its way.
One of the most beloved Christmas events for kids—and one of the best places in the city to snap a few pictures with Santa—is going virtual this year. From Nov 27 through Dec 24, Macy’s Santaland will be transformed into an interactive, virtual experience, ultimately bringing a little piece of NYC Christmas magic to homes everywhere.
When is Macy's Santaland 2020?
Macy's Santaland 2020 will run from Nov 27–Dec 24 virtually. You can access it on the Macy's website.
What is Macy's Santaland?
Macy's Santaland is a 13,000-square-foot Christmas village holiday display and indoor landscape that families can walk through! You'll encounter everything from a Rainbow Bridge to a giant Lionel train-scape, Santa's bustling workshop to a shiny red sleigh being prepped for the big night. Twinkling lights, snow-topped trees and other fun exhibits lead the way to Santa in this enchanting experience.
This year, you'll wander through Santa's village and workshop right from home.
Where is Macy's Santaland?
Macy's Santaland takes place on the eighth floor of Macy's Herald Square at 151 W 34th St. Although the store is typically transformed into a winter wonderland, now that experience will be held virtually.

Play interactive games and take a gander at Santa's village and workshop while you're on your North Pole-bound train. Make sure to stay until the end of the event, where a digital interactive video with Santa will allow kids to read off their wish lists and pose for a selfie.
