The holiday season is officially starting and we've got just the right activity to get you into the groove of things.

Starting November 15 through January 15, Bucket Listers is transforming Pier 15 at 78 South Street into Winter Wonderland at Watermark that’ll be a festive destination inspired by The Santa Clauses, the upcoming Disney series based on the popular The Santa Clause films starring Tim Allen. Tickets, which include entry and a complimentary cup of hot cocoa, start at $20 per person and can already be purchased right here.

There will be tons to do on-site during the 90-minute-long experience, starting with the chance to quite literally walk through Santa’s house, where you’ll get to sit in the figure’s cozy armchair by the fireplace in his very own living room. Don’t forget to snap some photos, of course.

Patrons will also be able to order seasonal treats and drinks at the gingerbread house bar, walk through delicious-looking candy cane pillars while filling up stockings at Mrs. Claus' candy bar. 

If you happen to stop by on a Saturday or Sunday in December, you'll be able to enjoy Santa's brunch as well. 

Fair warning, though: the majority of the experience is held outdoors so make sure to dress warmly as the weather is quickly turning frigid.

And if you're in need of more holiday-adjacent activities to add to your calendar this month, we suggest consulting our guide to the city's holiday markets (which officially have opening dates now!) and, of course, our list of best Christmas things to do in NYC.

What can we say? It's the most wonderful time of the year, indeed!
