Throughout their visit, guests can use the workshop’s magic mirror to transform into one of Santa’s elves, virtually change their elf’s outfits, receive customized “Magic Mirror” collector cards, and find out where they land on Santa’s list with the Naughty or Nice O’Meter. Santa HQ will be open seven days a week through December 24.
