Where to Find Santa Photos in San Diego (2021)
Santa is everywhere this year just waiting for your visit and to take photos with you. You'll find him at hotels, theme parks, malls and he's popping up at a few other surprising places too. Some require advanced reservations to be made online, where noted. Some of these fill up quickly so make your plans and get it on the calendar before it fills up with other Christmas fun!
Make sure you read through the Santa at Shopping Centers info below because you'll find more than just regular Santa Photos. There are Sensory Friendly Santa Photos, Santa Paws Photos, Breakfast with Santa, Fairytale story times and even find the hidden elf for prizes.
