Do guests have to wear a mask in the photo? Why?

All visitors aged 2+ are required to wear a mast for the visit and photos with Santa.

The provincial government has implemented restrictions to help prevent and stop the spread of COVID-19. Effective August 7, 2020, this includes mandating the use of face coverings in all public indoor settings across the province, including businesses, facilities and workplaces. Since the Santa experience is in a public indoor space, we are required to follow this mandate.

For the most update information on mask requirements, please visit https://bit.ly/38b4KO0

Why do I have to book a reservation in advance?

Hillcrest and The Jingle Jolly Forest has implemented a reservation-based system this year in order to help avoid line ups to minimize traffic and create a touch free experience. Holiday is a busy time of year, and we are doing everything possible to encourage social distancing and maintain a safe shopping centre for our guests, retailers and community.

What if I need to reschedule or cancel?

Your reservation is non refundable. However if you need to reschedule, you can do so by following the information on your reservation confirmation email.
