Opya’s 2022 Sensory Friendly Santa List of Locations

Sensory Friendly Santa is coming to town!

Have you ever noticed that some children struggle when visiting Santa? You might have witnessed both tears and terror in some children. For many children, visiting Santa contributes to sensory overload. Children with autism sometimes have an especially difficulty when it is busy, noisy, and bright. To help, Opya has put together a list of Sensory Friendly Santas across Northern and Southern California for you and your family to enjoy.

It is important to understand that the excitement of meeting Santa Claus can be an overwhelming experience for children. For some parents, this may sound very familiar. Unfortunately, many parents simply cannot bring their child or children to visit a regular Santa event. Again, this can be due to the loud noises, bright lights, big crowds, waiting in long lines, and even the smells.

It can be upsetting for families to miss out on creating such a common and cherished Christmas memory. With this understanding, we have compiled a list of “Sensory-Friendly Santas all over California for you to visit.
