Visit Santa at Fair Oaks Mall: Sensory Friendly and So Fun

Santa’s Flight Academy at Fair Oaks Mall invited us to spend the morning with Santa and we had so much fun. This is the coolest Santa experience we’ve seen.


For starters, my little ones are still a little nervous around the big guy. Usually, we spend a ton of time trying to get them to sit on his lap and smile. The folks at Fair Oaks mall really get it. They asked Santa to read us a story instead. It was perfect. No tears and a gorgeous (stress free) family photo.


Before we got to Santa, the kids got to try their hands at Santa’s Flight Academy. Each one got their own little badges that they inserted into each stage of the flight academy. Screens flashed their names, they got to try on a flight suit and they got to fill Santa’s sleigh with lots of Christmas power.
