Santa is stationed on the lower level outside Apple and Clarks. The easiest parking access is through the 5-Level parking ramp outside Forever 21 or parking by the DSW entrance.

If you park on 5-Level in the parking ramp it will be easiest to enter through the main mall entrance and take a left at the elevator. The set will be straight ahead.

If you come in at the DSW mall entrance, take the escalator down and the set will be to your right. Elevator is located outside of Regal Cinemas if needed.
