Special Needs Santa Events
December 8, 2019 9 AM-10:30 AM
Throughout Philly area malls, this Santa event takes steps to reduce sensory triggers, creating a more comforting environment for children’s cherished visit with Santa Claus. The subdued environment is likely to include:
• Silenced in-mall music, stopped escalators located near the photo set, dimmed lights and shut-down fountains for the duration of the event.
• Eliminated queue lines by using a numbering system where guests approach the set when their number is called.
• Special activities geared toward the needs of the child during the wait period to help the child understand what activities will occur during the visit.
