I will receive complimentary admission to the North Pole Experience for my family in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
There is nothing more exciting in the eyes of little children then the idea of Santa along with his elves and toy workshop. One of my most favorite things in the world is watching my children in complete awe! I always see that excitement and surprise on their faces on Christmas morning as they are amazed to see that presents line the tree and Santa really did come to visit them this year.
We have several family traditions for the holidays including driving around to see the Christmas lights and visiting the LDS temple in Mesa with their annual free lights display to name a few. But this year, we thought it would be amazing to take our children to see Santa’s Workshop first hand!
The North Pole Experience
North Pole Experience, located in Flagstaff, Arizona, does just that. They take you on an exciting journey through Santa’s Workshop transporting you to what feels like a whole new world. Your journey starts by taking you through a magic portal on one of Santa’s magic trolleys – Candy Cane Express™ or the Snowball Express™ – until you arrive at Santa’s Workshop!
You will be taught the secret elf knock that will allow you into the workshop and guided along your journey by Santa’s trusted Master Elf who can show you the in’s and out’s during the tour. He will guide you through the toy building room and factory where kids can become “elves” themselves and help to build toys for Christmas. Next, enjoy cookies and snowman soup (hot cocoa) at Santa’s bakery, learn all about the elves at Elf University, and read a story with Mrs. Claus in the workshop. Finish off your trip with a visit to Santa himself for a one-on-one visit and photos.
