Santa’s Workshop at Aventura Mall

Now through December 24th

Santa returns for meet-and-greets and professional photo opportunities for all, including pets! The magnificent Santa’s Workshop is highlighted by a mountain of glistening gift boxes stacked 60 feet high, 10-foot teddy bears, classic English-style rocking horses, 12-foot-tall toy soldiers, and 13-foot candy canes. It is topped by a storybook 19th century sleigh pulled by eight reindeer, and a rotating, 140-point Millennium Star. Every half hour, an elaborate, five-minute holiday light and sound show dazzles visitors. Santa’s Workshop is open November 25th through December 24th on the lower level near Bloomingdale’s. Photo reservations can be made online by clicking here.
