  2. I had the time of my life. For the first time ever I’ve gone to give Santa my wish list. Lol I’m such a big kid. It’s a great experience and I would recommend it to everyone. I’m an adult and I thoroughly enjoyed it. No kids in our group. So much fun, especially the elves. Big shout out to Dumpling, FruitCake, Pecan Pie, Snow Drop, Tiramisu, and Luna. Thanks guys you made the experience worth it. And a special shout out to Mr. Claus. From your Jamaican friend.

  3. I went and saw santa and bought a photo from the downtown Macy’s in Seattle. They said I could go online and download the digital imagine. I have the code and pin but not the website? Is there one?
