Everyone can admire five spectacular giant deer and the tall Christmas tree. I also recommend you catch a ride in the glass elevator near the large water fountain to enjoy a good view of of the giant tree and the 40-foot high water spray spurting out of the fountain at regular intervals. From the glass elevator on the south side, you’ll have a better take on the dozens of geese suspended from the ceiling (and another giant deer).
For 2014, the Eaton has once again partnered with Timber Block to built a log cabin for Santa Claus OUTSIDE of the Eaton Centre (in Trinity Square, accessible from the north/west door). The 30-min. weekend sessions with Santa are quickly sold out (through online booking) but people can visit Santa in his cabin on a first come first serve on Fridays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Note that for 2014, they've also created a little maze lined with small Christmas trees, right by the cabin. (See 2014 photos here.)
The Eaton Centre includes over 150 stores + food services; The Bay is linked to the mall by a tunnel running over Queen Street; Disney Store, EB Games and Toys Toys Toys.
