  • Lenox Square, now through December 24 in Macy’s Court
  • Mall of Georgia, now through December 24 in Nordstrom Court
  • Town Center at Cobb, now through December 24 in Center Court
  • Northlake Mall, now through December 24 in Center Court

Lenox Square, Mall of Georgia, Town Center at Cobb and Northlake Mall will also be the places for Santa to greet special needs children and their families via the popular Caring Santa program.

HP is the presenting sponsor for the 2013 Simon Santa Photo Experience and will demonstrate its next generation PCs in select malls this holiday season. ABC Family, Universal and Gymboree are associate sponsors this year.

ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas is sponsoring the Simon Santa Photo Experience for the ninth consecutive year. 25 Days of Christmas is the holiday viewing destination for holiday classics, blockbuster movies and original holiday programming, December 1 – 25. Visitors to the Simon Santa Photo Experience will receive a 25 Days of Christmas programming guide and scented holiday ornament.

Universal Studios Home Entertainment is celebrating the highly-anticipated release of Despicable Me 2, available on Digital HD on November 26 and Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, and DVD on December 10. Come visit the Simon Santa Photo Experience and pose for photos with the Minions standee while watching highlights from the movie.

Returning again as a sponsor this year is Gymboree. The Gymboree Corporation is a specialty retailer operating stores selling high-quality apparel and accessories for children under the Gymboree, Gymboree Outlet, Janie and Jack, and Crazy 8 brands,

“One of the great traditions of holiday shopping at Mall of Georgia is the annual family visit to the Simon Santa Photo Experience,” said Carol Cox, director of marketing and business development at Mall of Georgia. “I know Santa can’t wait to greet children bringing him their holiday wishes.”

The popular Pet Photo Night also returns to the Simon Santa Photo Experience at Lenox Square, Mall of Georgia, Town Center at Cobb and Northlake Mall this year. Many pet owners view their pet as an integral member of the family and are just as extravagant in caring for their pets as their “human” family members. Because some of our customers may suffer from pet allergies, Pet Photo nights are hosted after regular mall closing and the set gets an extensive cleaning following the event to remove dander, etc. The upcoming Pet Photo Night schedule is as follows:

  • Mall of Georgia:  December 8 (7:30-9 p.m.)
  • Town Center at Cobb: December 8 (7:00-9 p.m.)

The Noerr Programs, operators of the Santa Photo Experience at Lenox Square, Mall of Georgia, Town Center at Cobb and Northlake Mall, is sharing the heart of Santa online this holiday season, through the “BeMerrySanta®” program where families can keep up with Santa’s daily musings on his Facebook page at facebook.com/BeMerrySanta or Twitter @BeMerrySanta. Parents can also input their child’s good deed into Santa’s Magical Badge Generator and then print out their child’s customized badge, or show it to Santa on a smartphone or tablet during their visit.

Guests to every Noerr set will have the opportunity to share Santa’s spirit of generosity by making a donation via The Noerr Programs to U.S. rural children in need through Save the Children, a 75-year-old non-profit organization. To create even more magic for donors, The Noerr Programs will offer a chance for a lucky family of four to win a trip to Orlando, Florida.

Caring Santa is a special event dedicated to families that have children with special needs, providing a subdued environment to visit Santa. Many steps are taken to reduce sensory triggers, creating a more comforting environment for their magical visit with Santa.

The Caring Santa event at Lenox Square, Mall of Georgia, Northlake Mall and Town Center at Cobb will be held on December 8 and reservations are required. The program is guided by AbilityPath, an online support organization serving the special needs community for over 90 years. Reservations can be secured at www.caringsanta.com.
