We all know that there is something so special about going to Macy’s Herald Square and visiting Santa. That one-on-one time with the big guy means the world to so many boys and girls. This year Santa’s digs got a bit of a makeover, and visiting him now is even easier and more special. But the one major change is that this year Santa is only welcoming expected guests. So to avoid disappointing anyone, be sure to make a reservation. Reservations are available as little as 30 minutes ahead of time and up to five days in advance. This way no one has to wait too long for Santa and also he knows exactly who to expect. The whole experience is wonderful. So remember parents, when you see the elves, please ask forMr. Claus by name. He will only be there for a little while longer. He departs Dec. 24 to make his rounds of gift giving around the world.
