Schedule a time to have your photo taken with Santa at the Indiana Welcome Center. While you're there, make sure to tell him what you want for Christmas!

Santa will not be located on Santa’s Mountain in the main exhibit hall, but instead inside the theatre with a glass partition between him and guests. Families will be kept at least six feet apart while waiting for their visit.

Santa photos will be scheduled online ONLY here. Appointments are $10 and include one printed photo; additional photos can be purchased for $6 when you make your appointment or during your visit.*

We suggest you arrive at least ten minutes before your scheduled time. If anyone in your group has special needs and/or cannot use stairs, we will make accommodations at your appointment.

Mask Requirements

In compliance with the State of Indiana Executive orders, please be advised that masks are required during your visit to the Indiana Welcome Center for all adults and children who are old enough to walk. Once seated on the opposite side of Santa, families are allowed to take off their masks for a photo. 

Guests are required to put masks on again before exiting the theatre.

*Appointments cannot be cancelled and refunds will not be given. However you may reschedule your appointment up to one day prior if a new time slot is available. Use the rescheduling link in your confirmation email to reschedule or call us at 219-989-7979. In the event that the Indiana Welcome Center closes due to unforeseen circumstances, refunds will be given to all prepaid appointments.
