Take photos with Santa and shop more than 200 local artisans in the new Open Market OC marketplace. COVID safety precautions including masks and social distancing will be strictly enforced.

  • Santa Photos: Located in the Macy’s Court, “The Polar Express” interactive set is inspired by the fan-favorite Warner Bros. film. Guests can visit a “contactless” Santa that begins with a walk through interactive set. To deliver a captivating experience, children will still be able to talk with Santa from a safe distance to share their wish lists, though Santa and each family member will wear masks during their visit. Photos with Santa will be taken with 6 feet of social distance between Santa and his guests, and each picture will be professionally staged to minimize the visibility of that distance. Santa will be available for visits and professional photos daily beginning Friday, November 27th, through Christmas Eve, December 24th. Santa’s hours will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., with a break from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. each day; on Christmas Eve, Santa’s hours will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with a break from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. To reduce overall wait times and promote social distancing and contactless payment, families are strongly encouraged to make a reservation in advance of their visit at While strongly encouraged, a reservation is not required, and walk-up visits will be accommodated on a space-available basis.
