With the holidays approaching my list begins to grow of all the places we like to visit and traditions we have as a family that celebrate the holidays. On the top of our list is a visit with Santa! Many malls have experiences but International Plaza has one of our favorite experiences each year that is a treat for everyone and always gives us memories to last us another year!

Santa arrives on November 11th for Santa’s Flight Academy that takes place in Center Court on the lower level of International Plaza.

Save time and skip the line with Santa’s Express Lane!

We’ve always arrived early to avoid waiting in line but debuting this season, you’ll be able to book an appointment with Santa and be on the express sleigh to see him once you arrive!  How amazing is this!? How does this work!?

You must hop online and sign up your kids for a personalized visit at Santa’s Flight Academy. Then sign up for Santa’s Express Lane Pass and skip the long lines to see Santa sooner. You must pre-purchase your photo package along with a convenience fee ($12) in order to jump into the Santa’s Express Lane at the International Plaza Santa’s Flight Academy location.

The set up at International Plaza is always elaborate and always keeps us entertained while we wait!  This year, they have surprises that did not disappoint!  Building the excitement as you wait to see Santa is always fun when you have awesome interactive things to do while you wait!

Before you enter this year, you’ll get to sign up as one of Santa’s Heroes and receive a badge that is customized with your child’s name, code name, North Pole Post Location and picture!  (Shhhh… When they scan the badge before they see Santa, Santa will even know their names! How cool is that!)

Wait and play with an interactive games and even enter a snow globe with pretend snow, lights and music!

Santa’s Flight Academy at International Plaza has been brought to you by Experience Kissimmee.  We had such an amazing time and we know you all will too!

With Kissimmee only being less than an hour away from Tampa, you’ll definitely want to plan a trip over before the holidays are over!  We visit every year and love all the experiences that have that are now considered traditions for our family.
