Christmas is coming, and so is Santa — to the Galleria, that is.

This year, there are two events at Galleria Dallas offering neighbors photo opportunities.

Beginning Nov. 19, Santa will arrive in the Santaland Express, a luxury train leaving every 15 minutes. Ride through a moonlit forest, an enchanted path with starry lights and polar bears, and arrive at Santa’s cabin hideaway. Santaland ends Dec. 24.

Photo packages are available in addition to tickets, and reservations can be made here.

There are also opportunities for children with special needs and their families to have private photo sessions with Santa, but visits are limited and by reservation only.

Snowday returns to the mall next to Santa’s Workshop. It’s an immersive experience with a European holiday theme, offering photo opportunities for all ages. SnowDay runs Nov. 19-Jan. 17.

Previously, Snowday installed the Pop! exhibit, which featured 24 themed rooms for photo opportunities.
