These sessions offer a sensory-friendly environment with dimmed lights and no music and are designed to allow children with special needs to access photo sessions outside of busy trading hours. This allows children to ease into their meet-and-greet with Santa and helps to provide a more comfortable experience without distractions. Santa and the team are trained on how to communicate with children who may experience some sensitivities and will take the time to ensure each child feels safe and special.
