Disney is partnering with Bucket Listers to present “The Santa Clauses’” Winter Wonderland, a themed experience inspired by Disney’s new series “The Santa Clauses,” running from Nov. 15, 2022 – Jan. 15, 2023 at Watermark at Pier 15 in New York City.

A dining and cocktail location overlooking the East River, Watermark will be transformed into Santa Claus’ home and workshop at the North Pole, featuring a gingerbread house bar with hot cocoa and other seasonal beverages and treats. Offerings include Rudolph’s Truffle Ravioli, Prancer’s Pigs-in-a-Blanket, and Santa’s S’mores.
Past the bar are several photo opportunities, including Santa’s living room, his sleigh, and a giant snow globe. There are also private glass houses with seating on the water, set among trees that are lit up for the holiday season.
General Admission tickets include all of the above offerings, but VIP ticket holders will also have access to a special entry lane, priority access to the cocktail chalet and photo ops, a pair of hand warmers, and a gingerbread cookie or Santa hat.
The experience coincides with the two-part premiere of “The Santa Clauses,” a new series on Disney+ reviving “The Santa Clause” films starring Tim Allen. Allen will reprise his role as Scott Calvin as he attempts to find his replacement as Santa Claus. The first two episodes of “The Santa Clauses” will be on Disney+ starting Nov. 16, 2022.
Tickets are available for 90-minute sessions in the Winter Wonderland at multiple times per day. General Admission starts at $20 and VIP starts at $30, both of which guarantee entry and a cup of hot cocoa.
