Below you’ll find answers to your questions about our Meet Santa service using the appointment platform.

If you have any further questions, please reach out to Galeries de Hull Customer Service or the elves of the kingdom. They’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Am I required to reserve a spot to meet Santa? 

We strongly recommend that you reserve your time slot in advance to guarantee a smooth visit with Santa. You can also go directly to the Galeries de Hull and ask the elves in the kingdom to reserve one of the remaining spots for you.

Where can I check Santa’s availability? 

To check when Santa is available, visit the appointment platform at https://lesgaleriesdehull.perenoelrdv.com/. You can then choose the date and time that suits you best. Please note, however, that places are limited and we cannot guarantee the availability of your desired time slot. We may also close the kingdom without notice in the event of unforeseen circumstances. If this is the case, rest assured that you will receive an e-mail informing you that your appointment had to be cancelled.

Are appointments only available on a family basis?

Indeed, meetings with Santa Claus are reserved for families only. You’ll need to register your children individually, and then select a family meeting when you reserve your appointment. Please note, however, that the duration of the appointment is the same for everyone, even if there are several children in the same time slot. Please allow 5 minutes per family.

Can we meet an English-speaking Santa? 

Santa’s appointment platform is available in both English and French. However, if you would like your child to chat with an English-speaking Santa at their visit, please check with our Marketing Coordinator, Rosalie Bouchard, at rosalie.bouchard@cominar.com. 

Will we receive a reminder of our appointment time?

Santa’s elves will make sure you don’t miss your appointment with him! 24 hours before your appointment, the elves will send you an e-mail and a text message to remind you of the date and time of this magical occasion.
