Welcome Christmas Season! So excited to share our first Christmas event of the year!
My sweet husband went with me to the North Pole Experience(NPX) in Flagstaff, Arizona. The NPX takes you to the North Pole where you are able to experience the magic of Santa’s Workshop. You start your experience at The Little America Hotel, where you check in, get souvenirs and can get a cup of hot coco. Once your trolley bus is ready, you board and set off for the North Pole!
Once you arrive at the North Pole, you start out in Santa’s Toy room! You are able to see a bunch of fun antique toys that Santa used to make and kids get to take part in the Toy Solider Dance! So cute and so much fun! After that you head into the workshop where you help the elves dress teddy bears. Something to note before you head in is that you are not able to keep the teddy bear you dress up at the workshop, your child gets a teddy bear when they meet Santa at the end of the NPX. After Santa’s toy making room, you head to the gift wrapping room. Here children get to help the elves put toy parts on the conveyor belt that goes to the workshop and they get to see all the fun different wrapping papers that the elves use!
Once you’ve dressed the teddy bears and gone to the wrapping room, you get to see Mrs. Claus’s Bakery! Here you get some hot coco, a sugar cookie and get to dance with the elves. Personally, this was my favorite room, it was very well decorated, everyone was served hot coco and cookies quickly and the elves in this room were the most animated of the bunch! After you finish your hot coco and cookies you head to Elf University. At Elf University you learn what it takes to be an elf in the North Pole. Kids and adults learn the elf song and sing it together. Once you have learned how to be Santa’s elf, you go to the mail room where you write a letter to Santa! I even got my husband to write a letter to Santa 🙂
Finally, once you’ve written your letter you get to see Santa’s sleigh and meet Santa. Each family gets their own time with Santa and you get a personal photo as well! At the end of your time you receive a link and a code that leads you to your pictures! These pictures are available as soon as you walk out of Santa’s room! And that’s the conclusion of the North Pole Experience. This is a must do event if you have children, and for those that don’t, if you love Santa this is still a fun and magical experience!
