As we introduced last year, in addition to the normal two day school, we are offering a special advanced session with more work on creating better photos and experiences for the children and families. 

ALSO NOTE: The Orlando School will be presented during the week, on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Hosted at the site of the Christmas Dreams Project in Winter Springs, FL.

A block of rooms has been reserved at the Hampton Inn & Suites, nearby in Alamonte Springs.   The rate per night is $115 for a single or double occupancy.   This includes Free WiFi and daily breakfast.  The deadline to reserve a room is June 15, so call today (407) 331-0220.

One of my firm beliefs is that Santas need to start early in the year if they want to make the best of the training they are receiving.   So getting your training done by summers-end allows you the time necessary to apply what you have learned. 

As with all of our schools, this is for all Santas, Mrs Claus and those interested in the Santa industry.  Whether you are real bearded or theatrically bearded; professional or just a volunteer, this school has something for everyone.   

All registrations are the same price as last year.  A single registration for 2019 is just $299 for the two day course, $429 for a couple. This includes 16 hours of training, the 240+ page course book and your personalized diploma, or two diplomas for a couple.  Travel, meals and lodging are not included.

Alumni Rates are just $239 per person, and $329 per couple  and include the full course and diplomas, no course book.

For an additional $149 per person or $199 per couple, on Wednesday, I will be offering the advanced day of training, “Making the Moment,” with concentration and practical application on photography, posing, special events, and expanded elements for professional Santas and Mrs. Claus. For those who have completed our two day school, this training Includes a copy of my newest book, “Making the Moment,” containing tips, advice, techniques and over 100 photos with examples for the Professional Santa and Mrs. Claus. Special certificates acknowledging advanced study, will be presented. You may register to attend only the “Making the Moment,” training. However there is a requirement that you previously attended one of our two-day general schools.

The daily school schedule is from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.  On Saturday afternoon, at the close of class, I will host a presentation of the Santa Claus Oath.  All Santas and Mrs. Claus from the region are most welcome to join the class in the Oath ceremony.  One does not need to attend the school in order to take part in the ceremony.   Special Oath certificates, suitable for framing will be presented to all attendees.

LUNCH – Christmas Dreams is offering lunch each day for just $8 per person. Here is the menu:
• Monday–hamburgers, hot dogs, brats, baked beans, chips, dessert and drinks
• Tues–baked chicken, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, veggies, dessert and drinks
• Wed–subs, chicken salad, chips, salad, dessert and drinks

On Monday Night, we have something very special planned.  A local restaurant, Huey Magoo’s Chicken Tenders, 895 E. Altamonte Dr., Altamonte Springs, FL 32701. is sponsoring a  fund raising night for Christmas Dreams and we will have our traditional “first night dinner,” at the restaurant.  The restaurant is donating a portion of all orders to the Christmas Dreams project.  As we have done with all of our schools, all regional Santas, Mrs. Claus, families and friends are most welcome to attend, especially the Palm Tree Santas who have coordinated this dinner in the past..  You do not need to attend the school to join us for dinner. (separate checks please.)

On Tuesday Afternoon, at the close of class, we will hold a ceremony to present diplomas to all students.
