2014: Santa in the forest until December 24
Square One used to host Santa in a wonderful and huge castle under the dome in Centre Court. In the last years they had a “Magical Video Christmas Tree” and the Melody & Magic show, a gorgeous 4-minute long lights & sound show where the small lights are lit through the trees and dozens of structures suspended from the ceiling, at the sound of lively music. Last, under this dome, they were down to a crystal tree... On the other hand, they have created a cute realistic forest for Santa near the Gap store. Note that any kid is welcome to sit on Santa's lap but you're not allowed to take your own photos. You need to buy their photo package if you want a souvenir (their cheapest option is $15 for a 5 X 7).
Square One includes over 250 stores (over 10 kids-only apparel stores), Hudson's Bay, Walmart and Target; Build-A-Bear Workshop, Disney Store, EB Games and Games Workshop.
