5. WHAT IF I HAVE A SPECIAL REQUEST OR NEED TO MAKE A CHANGE TO THE SCHEDULE?

We understand that every event is different and special to the needs of the client, family and guests. If you have a special request just let us know at the time of booking and we will tell you if we can do it.

If you need to make a change in the schedule please remember that Santa is booked at many events throughout the season. He often has two to four consecutive events per day, especially on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Often it is difficult to make changes after the initial booking is made, as Santa has filled in all of his appointment. Because of this, changes made after confirmation are at the client’s cost, and must be made to us in advance when possible. Often we may be able to get other clients or families to adjust their schedules to meet your changes. The minimum additional charge for changes, after initial confirmation is $50.

6. WHAT IF I ONLY WANT SANTA FOR 30 MINUTES?

Thirty-minute bookings are limited to private home visits for single-families. All other home parties, corporate events and special events are a minimum of one-hour.
