Santa Claus Returns to Destiny USA!

He’s making a list and covering his face, and in addition, this year, he’s taking steps to keep everyone safe… Santa Claus IS coming to town! Destiny USA has taken the liberty to alter the lyrics of the famous Christmas jingle to announce Santa’s return in 2020. In coordination with Cherry Hill Programs, the industry-leader in experiential holiday photography experiences, Santa is scheduled to arrive at Destiny USA on Black Friday, November 27th, 2020.

Visiting Santa at Destiny USA: 

  • There will be plenty of fun and magic, as well as a focus on the health and well-being of everyone. Guests are encouraged to plan their visit with Santa ahead of time and review the safety measures being taken based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention online at WhereIsSanta.com or www.cherryhillprograms.com/CovidGuidelines.


Reservations are strongly encouraged with walk-up visits available as space allows throughout the day. Best practices will be followed: maintaining social distance, face masks required for everyone and enhanced cleaning between visits.


“Ho, ho, ho! I’m looking forward to seeing all of the good boys and girls in Syracuse this year,” said Claus. “I know this will be a very different season for us all, but it will be a very special one because we all get to keep the magic of the season alive in a way that’s safe and memorable for everyone!”


Create Holiday Magic:
Destiny USA and Cherry Hill Programs announced a partnership to launch a new virtual technology, Create Holiday Magic, tailored specifically around the current COVID-19 pandemic, to help families keep their holiday traditions alive.

Cherry Hill Programs, which has brought Santa to children and families across the U.S. for 60 years, decided to get the latest HD video call technology to the North Pole to allow Santa a safe way to visit families across the world while simultaneously adhering to proper social distancing guidelines. Santa can connect with children and families all over via personalized Zoom video calls, as part of its 2020 “Holiday Magic Traditions” package. Through this first of its kind program, Destiny USA and Cherry Hill are making sure this pandemic does not get in the way of holding on to family holiday traditions.

This V.I.P. package also includes a premium Holiday Traditions Gift Box, unlimited access to My Photo with Santa, unlimited access to create Pet Photos with Santa, on-demand video Story Time with Santa, a letter from Mrs. Claus and her secret cookie recipe kit, and much more. Additional, lower-tiered, experience packages are also available for purchase starting at $9.99. Cherry Hill also offers two free trials this year, guests have access to try My Photo with Santa and Pet Photo with Santa for free or upgrade to a premium license for unlimited photo uploads and downloads along with access to a full library of adorable holiday backgrounds, frames and stickers. Both are available to share across social media and are printable at no extra cost. All packages are currently available to purchase via www.createholidaymagic.com.

Holiday packages are available through December 24, 2020, and can be scheduled in fifteen-minute increments, seven days a week, from 9 a.m. until 9:45 p.m EST.
