Santa & Friends – Augmented Reality Experience

November 19, 2021 - January 1, 2022

Visit Fashion Island this holiday season and enjoy photo experience with our augmented reality holiday characters, including Santa!

Find the signs in the courtyards listed below (hint: they say “SCAN FOR A HOLIDAY SURPRISE!”) and scan the QR code with your mobile device to activate the experience.

Take photos and/or videos of your family members alongside and/or interacting with the characters. Then, save the photos to your mobile device and share with friends and family via email, SMS, and social media.


  • Neiman Marcus Courtyard
  • Atrium Lawn (near CHANEL Beaute and Restoration Hardware)
  • Nordstrom Courtyard

Pro Tips: 

  • There are THREE different characters located throughout Fashion Island – find all three!
  • Make sure the sound is up on your mobile device so you can hear (and record) Santa’s custom message, holiday music, and character sounds.
  • Pinch and zoom the characters on your screen to resize them.
  • Check out the Retail Therapy offers listed on the experience’s web page – you’ll find some good deals from restaurants and retailers nearby!

Have Fun and Happy Holidays!
