The sparkle station for Santa is stunning, but I have heard from a couple of moms it may not be sensory friendly.  If you think the lights will bother your child you can enter via the exit if you feel that would be helpful for your child.

Vaughan Mills

Vaughan Mills Photos with Santa

From the moment you pass through the grand entrance of Santa’s Tiny Big Town, you experience the wonder of a classic snowy Christmas village nestled in a forest of twinkling trees. The queue inside Santa’s Tiny Big Town directs you in a zigzag pattern, with an immersive magical world at every turn: iPad game stations, touchscreen technology for letter-writing to Santa, an interactive mail box, traditional games and puzzles and a selfie station that provides free digital photos.

You will experience an enclosed private, distraction-free visit with Santa to capture your memorable Santa photo. After the photos and exchange of wishes a NEW video will be played for you to enjoy. With the help of you and Santa’s magic, you will receive Santa’s magical key to be included in your Christmas Eve’s tradition.

Santa looks forward to your visit and we thank you for continuous support for SickKids Foundation.

***This is where Kate’s family had their Santa Photos done in 2017 and it was a great experience.  There are some activities for kids to do if you have to wait in line, when visiting with Santa you are in his house so your kids can actually have a chat with him without everyone watching.  And the prices are so reasonable!***

Monday – Saturday: 10 AM – 8 PM
Sunday : 11 AM – 5 PM
Christmas Eve Hours: 10am- 3pm
