Santa Claus will be arriving at the Mall at Millenia in grand style to kick of the Christmas season on Friday, November 6th, 2015 starting at 5:30 PM. The holiday event features a family friendly dj dance party, with food and drinks available for purchase until 6:30pm, leading up to Santa’s arrival at 6:45pm with a little help from his elves and helpers from the North Pole.
Santa Claus Arrival at the Mall at Millenia
Every year, children everywhere go to visit Santa Claus at the mall. For Santa’s arrival at the Mall at Millenia, they roll out the red carpet. Santa’s arrival at the Mall at Millenia is a free theme-park worthy annual event that celebrates the arrival of Santa along with his helpers.
Annual Christmas Event
The costumes and makeup for this free event remind you of a Cirque Du Soleil show and the decorations adorn the mall all over. This a fairly new event that I believe will really become a holiday tradition for many locals within the Orlando area. I remember being in Atlanta several years ago for Thanksgiving for the lighting of the Christmas Tree in Lenox Square where Usher performed Christmas songs for the thousands in attendance. This is Orlando’s version of that type of event that you and your children will enjoy attending.
Santa Claus Visiting Hours
Santa’s hours are the same as the mall hours that vary throughout the month of December.
Holiday Food and Drinks
As part of the arrival event there is also an optional charity dining experience to raise money for the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children where:
- A $20 donation per family of up to four is required for food and drinks.
- Children under 2 are free
- The entire $20 donation goes to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, the food is being provided by participating Mall at Millenia restaurants and cafes and ends at 6:30 PM.
- Wristbands required at the food and drink tents will be available at the large Orlando Health tents located near the main entrance.
Donations will be made directly to Arnold Palmer Hospital; Cash is the preferred payment method.
