Eat With Santa

Family time + Eating with Santa = Best.Meal.Ever.

Lansing / Mid Michigan has many options to enjoy a meal with Santa. If your family hasn’t eaten with the cheery man who’s tummy looks like a bowl full of jelly before, you’re in for a treat. It’s not just the food that’s a treat, it’s the smiles on your kid’s faces when they experience a meal with family and Mr. Claus!

Each year kids wait up expectantly on Christmas Eve, hoping to see Santa eat the cookies they left out, take the carrots, and drink a cold cup of milk. This year, their dreams of such a close encounter will become a reality as they sit in the same room, eating and chatting with YOUR family.

The time spent meeting and eating with Santa is a truly magical family experience.
