Opry Mills also provides children with special needs and their families with an opportunity to enjoy a carefully managed, sensory-friendly Santa photo experience through the Caring Santa program. Caring Santa will occur on Sunday, Nov. 20, from 8–10:45 a.m. and Sunday, Dec. 4, from 8–10:45 a.m., prior to mall opening. Guests can register in advance at simon.com/caringsanta.
For local pet owners, the popular Pet Photo Night with Santa will occur on Sunday, Dec. 11, at 7:30 p.m.
The Simon Santa Photo Experience is again sponsored by The Gymboree Corporation. The Gymboree Corporation is a specialty retailer operating stores selling high-quality apparel and accessories for children under the Gymboree, Gymboree Outlet, Janie and Jack, and Crazy 8 brands.
The 2016 Simon Santa Photo Experience and Pet Photo Night is also sponsored by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment which is celebrating the highly anticipated release of “The Secret Life of Pets,” available on Digital HD on Nov. 22 and on Blu-ray and DVD on Dec. 6. Families visiting the Simon Santa Photo Experience can receive a fun activity sheet and a custom “The Secret Life of Pets” holiday headband, and watch highlights from the movie while in line.
Guests to every Simon Photo Experience will have the opportunity to make a donation via The Noerr Programs to Save the Children. For nearly 100 years, this nonprofit has given underserved children in the U.S. a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. Since this program began five years ago, Noerr has collected over $1 million largely due to the generosity of Simon shoppers.
