Meet Santa On Zoom started in November of 2020 when Cory Pavitt, a father of 2, wanted his kids to meet with Santa this Christmas season! He realized he wasn't alone, so he partnered up with friends Dave & Jessy Place to create a platform where any parent could easily book Santa for a Zoom session with their little ones!
Meet Santa On Zoom has taken flight and is now a popular choice for parents who want their kids have a chance to meet Santa, even from afar.

How Does Meet Santa On Zoom Work?
It's simple, you can schedule a 5-minute virtual session with Santa through our Booking Calendar. You answer a few simple questions (what is your child's name, what would they like for Christmas, what Santa should know about them). Then you pay and book. You will get an email with our Zoom Link in it. On the day of the session, you will go on the Zoom link 5 minutes before your appointed time, and then Santa will let you in to the meeting!
What Should I Know Before Our Session?
All you need to know is how to use Zoom on your computer or phone. We just need you on the Zoom link with your video, microphone, and sound on 5 minutes before the meeting and we take care of the rest!
Can I Use Zoom On My Phone?
Absolutely, if you do not have a computer handy, you can use your phone instead for your Zoom session with Santa. However, we suggest using a computer if you have one, since children can hold a longer attention span with a bigger screen.
What If I Have Technical Issues?
If you are having technical issues before the your session, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your phone number. We will call you to help with your technical issue. If a technical issue keeps you from your meeting with Santa, we can reschedule your session for another time.
When Will I Get My Video Recording With Santa?
If you have chosen to get a recording with Santa, we will email you a link to the recording along with a special password before 11pm EST the day/night of your Zoom session.
Can I Have Multiple Children In My Session With Santa?
Yes! Each session is 5 minutes long so, if you'd like, you can have multiple children meet with Santa on one session or you can book a session for each of your children. It is completely up to you!
What If My Child Is Misbehaving?
If you need to reschedule your meeting before or during your session because your child is misbehaving, we allow you to have one free reschedule so that your child can feel calm and happy while speaking with Santa.
Do Allow Cancellations or Reschedules?
Yes, we allow cancellations up until 24 hours before your scheduled session. We also allow one reschedule for you.
Does It Matter What Time Zone I'm In?
No, you can be in any time zone. Our booking calendar automatically populates meeting times based on your time zone, so you do not need to worry about it!
