Simon Malls announced today that children and their families can experience the joy and magic of the holiday season with a visit to the Simon Santa Photo Experience as Santa begins making his annual arrival this November, and will be onsite at the centers through Christmas Eve, Saturday, December 24th.

Save time, avoid the line with Santa by Appointment. Select malls now allow visitors to reserve your magical moment with Santa online at Photo packages and pricing will vary. Visitors can get more information at participating Santa Sets. The Simon Santa Photo Experience is again sponsored by The Gymboree Corporation and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

Come visit the Simon Santa Photo Experience and receive a fun-filled activity sheet, a custom The Secret Life of Pets holiday headband, and watch highlights from the movie.

This holiday season, Simon invites everyone to celebrate “The Joy of Giving.” Giving is contagious and this season Simon invites everyone to pass that spirit on and ‘Give Love,’ ‘Give Sparkle,’ ‘Give Warmth,’ and ‘Give Fun.’ Join Simon to experience the season’s good cheer with the best of holiday shopping and entertainment.

“One of the great traditions of holiday shopping at a Simon Mall is the annual family visit to the Simon Santa Photo Experience,” said Linnea Kelliher, Regional Director of Marketing New England. “I know Santa can’t wait to greet children that are bringing him their holiday wishes.”

Guests to every Simon Photo Experience will have another opportunity to share Santa’s heart by making a donation via The Noerr Programs to Save the Children. For nearly 100 years, this non-profit has given underserved children in the U.S. a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. Since this program began five years ago, Noerr has collected over $1,000,000 largely due to the generosity of Simon shoppers.

Additional holiday programming details regarding Pet Photos with Santa, Caring Santa, Santa celebrations, community partnerships, and more will be announced soon.
