Photos with Santa — and a chance to share those last-minute gift ideas with the big man himself — are a tradition for many families during the holiday season.
Depending where you go, that experience can also come at a high cost. At the mall and shopping centers, photo packages can range between $40-$50, though they usually include multiple prints and sizes.
At Cabela's in Glendale and Bass Pro Shops in Mesa — as they typically do each year — families can make an online reservation to take a free photo with Santa, part of its "Santa's Wonderland" experience.
Santa will be at both stores now through Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 2021. Kids can also do crafts and send a letter to the North Pole.
