We have been living with our mask mandate for some time, but we have heard from a number of you that all you want is a “normal Santa photo” this year. We have been sent numerous creative options for photo ideas, and we have considered all of them. One of the benefits that we strive to offer is a level of consistency.
So we are excited to offer Magical Santa Photos this year for any families that would like that one piece of normalcy and a matching photo to go along with the previous 12 years of photos. We aren’t judging and you are not wrong for wanting to forget 2020, so if normal is what you would like, then here is the North Pole Experience for you.
The process and procedure for Experience 3 and 4 will be the same. When you get to Santa’s Studio, however, he will not be there. He won’t actually be on site. We will take your photos just like he was there. You will be able to select your favorite photo on our touch screens. Later that evening, after we have put the image through the magical Santa Photometer, we will send you the high-resolution photo of your magical photo WITH Santa along with a rights release to produce the photo for personal use.
If you are accustomed to a CD full of 10-15 photos, this won’t be an option. The capacity of the Santa Photometer is limited to one digital photo per Reservation. After you preview the magic, you will have the option to order prints online and have them mailed or available for pickup at the North Pole.
This is as close to normal as we are able to offer this year.
