HGTV presents Santa HQ at the Deptford Mall! A must do! #SantaHQ

“This is a sponsored post on behalf of Santa HQ . All opinions are 100% my own.”

Have the kids visited Santa this year? Yes it is that time again, I know it feels as if it was just Halloween (well because it was!) but now it is time to get ready for the holidays and if you are like our family a visit and a picture with Santa is a must, no matter how many years go by. 
Visiting Santa is great  but what if I told you there was an even more exciting and fun experience featuring an interactive, digital experience at Santa’s workshop that you can visit? Well, get excited because Santa HQ is here at our local Deptford Mall! What is Santa HQ exactly you ask? HGTV, the place where you get some great decorating tips, has come together with the Deptford Mall to host the North Pole’s most prominent resident at ‘Santa HQ.’ Families are encouraged to partake in an interactive, digital experience at Santa’s workshop. 
Guests will be engaged during their visit with Santa due to Santa HQ’s incorporation of an augmented reality environment and captivating social media experience. Upon entering Santa HQ, kids will learn if they are on Santa’s naughty or nice list after being “scanned” at the Naughty or Nice O’Meter and spend time at an observatory to catch a glimpse of Santa’s remarkable world through special tablets. 

Visitors will also be able to take an “Elfie” (a photo opportunity as a dancing elf) and much more. On select Saturdays, elves Jack and Strawberry will interact with guests as they take their journey through Santa’s headquarters. They will also be providing live holiday entertainment and guests will even hear their original jingle.

In the spirit of the season shoppers also are invited to bring in an unwrapped toy and participate in Help Through Holiday Giving.  Deptford Mall hopes to collect and donate 1000 toys to the Salvation Army. The annual toy drive is sponsored by Inspira Health Network. There is nothing better than giving back, it really makes you feel great knowing a child will get a special gift and it will brighten their holiday. 

There are wonderful photo packages available starting at $39.99. As an added bonus, guests can start to make reservations with the man of the hour starting by visiting and the biggest bonus of this package is you can reserve the time you want to meet Santa! Save time. Avoid the big line, this is a priceless option… 

I remember standing in line for nearly 2 hours when my daughter was a baby, we really wanted the Santa holding baby picture, so we were going to wait, and wait we did…. We waited so long that my daughter started to get hungry, we had a bottle ready and the bam… it was our turn… Oh by she was not happy, so we have a Santa holding a crying baby picture… Oh well, if only we had the opportunity to reserve our appointment it would have been so much easier. Make a reservation for your photo package today.

You don’t have to be a kid (just a kid at heart) to visit the experience and take photos with Santa. Taking a photo with Santa is a family tradition, a tradition that dates back to before we were even a family! My husband (then boyfriend) would take a photo with Santa all throughout the years we were dating. It was just a fun remembrance of the holiday. I like to keep this tradition and we visit, and take picture with the big jolly man each holiday season, no matter how old my daughter gets, we still have fun doing this. Check out here Elfie video below, so cute!
My family and I has a nice time checking out Santa HQ, it was filled with great photo opportunities and the “Elfie” op, was hilarious! Make your plans to visit Santa HQ this holiday season, remember to make your photo package reservation to save time and get a great photo package. 
Santa's helpers who where working at the HQ could not have been any more nicer, they really made the trip extra special for all of the families attending. I would highly suggest checking out the Deptford Mall SantaHQ you will love it! There are also some great special events too, so plan accordingly…. Including Pet Night, where guests can bring their four-legged friends to Santa HQ on select Sundays for a photo with Santa. 

On Black Friday 11/24/17, random lucky shoppers will be surprised with a promotional gift card at the Santa HQ set as part of the Spreading Holiday Cheer sweepstakes. If the Deptford mall is a bit out of your travel range, don’t worry! There are other Santa HQ locations throughout the US. Be sure to check for a location near you! Would you like to take the kids to visit your local Santa HQ this holiday season?

That looks like such a fun place to visit. Boo Who our mall does not have it, kids would love it!

Wow, that is so much cooler than the simple Santa chair at our local mall. Now I have Santa envy!

That looks like so much fun! We need to see Santa early in the season so his elves have time to prep gifts. Luckily there are some California locations so he can visit Santa's headquarters.
