The Santa Clauses Winter Wonderland

In honor of the upcoming Disney+ series, “The Santa Clauses,” a special interactive event called “The Santa Clauses’ Winter Wonderland” will run at the Watermark in New York City from November 15, 2022 to January 15, 2023.

The Experience

This holiday season, Watermark at Pier 15 will transform into Santa Claus’ headquarters at the North Pole.

Guests will first step into Santa’s hallway, lined with candy cane pillars, and follow it into a gingerbread house bar, stocked with seasonal treats and drinks.

It leads to Santa’s living room, where you can settle into a cozy armchair and snap a picture in front of the Claus’ fireplace.

As you continue to explore, you’ll find Santa’s famous sleigh, private glass houses, and a larger-than-life giant snow globe perfect for group photo-ops, plus much more.

The elves, led by Head Elf Betty, have been working hard to welcome you into this immersive holiday experience, full of endless hot chocolate, sweets, treats, and memories you will cherish throughout the season and more.


Online tickets are now available to purchase at for the run of dates, and there are two basic tiers:

  • General Admission: Starting at $20 per person (includes guaranteed entry plus a cup of hot cocoa)
  • Premium Express Entry: Starting at $30 per person (Includes Express Admission on Santa’s VIP list line, 1 cup of hot cocoa, personal pair of hand warmers + souvenir Santa hat)

General Admission & Premium Express Ticket holders will have access to the outdoor activations such as Santa’s Hallway, Santa’s Living Room, Giant Snow Globe, Santa’s Sleigh, Santa’s Workshop & Gingerbread bar to purchase Cocktails, Food, & Souvenirs.

Guests will also have access to the Enclosed Waterfront “Cocktail Chalet” based on availability and capacity.

This is mostly an outdoor experience and guests are advised to dress warm.

The Series

Scott Calvin (Disney Legend Time Allen) is back! After being Santa Clause for nearly 30 years, he’s as jolly as ever. But as Christmas declines in popularity, so does his Santa magic. Scott struggles to keep up with the demands of the job, as well as being there for his family.

Upon discovering there is a way to retire from his post, Scott considers stepping down as Santa and finding a worthy successor so that he can become a better father and husband.

Returning for the holiday adventures are Elizabeth Mitchell as Mrs. Clause, and David Krumholtz as Bernard the Elf.

Joining them are Kal Pen, Laura San Giacomo, Elizabeth Allen-Dick, Devin Bright, Austin Kane, Matilda Lawler, Teagan Johnson, Nico Bustos, and Rupali Redd.

“The Santa Clauses” will debut on Disney+ next month on November 16 with two episodes, followed by a weekly release of each remaining episode. The original three movies can also be found on the streamer.
