Waiting in an endless lineup to take your adorable children for photos with Santa at the mall is a rite of passage for every parent. But what if you could skip the lineups and focus on the memories instead?

Turns out you can. Bramalea City Centre is bringing back its VIP Santa experience again this year. You can book a personal session with Santa for the whole fam jam.

As part of the experience you get to wait in a private waiting room with toys and activities for the kids, then you get a completely private visit with Santa.

The package includes prints, a holiday ornament and a take-home gift for the kids. All sessions are by appointment and come at a price of $79.99.

VIP Santa will be available starting November 30 until December 24. They’re also hosting special pet sessions on November 25 and December 2.

Both the VIP Santa and pet sessions can be booked at VIPSantaVisit.com.
