Visit the Queens Center Mall for Your Family Photos with Santa! #SantaHQ

Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, believe in Santa or not, there's something so special and memorable about getting the annual holiday family photos! I have been making sure to get ones of my children annually.  It wasn't until I looked back one year at the old photos that I truly appreciated it.  Wondering where you should get yours?  Visit Queens Center's Santa HQ for a fun experience that your children will enjoy.  Queens Center has partnered with HGTV once again and is hosting the North Pole's most prominent resident at Santa HQ.  Families are encouraged to partake in an interactive digital experience at Santa's workshop during their photo session.

The HQ allows children to meet real life elves, as well as go through the Naughty or Nice O'Meter.  They are able to watch parts of the headquarters come to life showcasing secrets of Santa's world on the special tablets.  Guests can also download the app ahead of time to experience it on their own, all you do is point the camera towards special areas.
Visitors will also be able to take an “Elfie” (a photo opportunity as a dancing elf) on the path to meeting Santa for the special photo.  The final video can be emailed for enjoyment on the ride back home.  
Photo packages start at $39.99, and guests can make reservations ahead of time by visiting  

Shoppers also are invited to bring in an unwrapped toy and participate in Help Through Holiday Giving.  Queens Center hopes to collect and donate over 2,000 toys to local Queens’ charities serving families and children in need.
