The Holiday Magic Village Opens on Nov. 18 and will Close Dec. 24, 2021


Celebrate the holiday season with Santa and the Grinch™ at CityPlace Doral! Santa is jolly to announce that Cherry Hill Programs (CHP), the industry leader in experiential photography that operates hundreds of holiday photo experiences across the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, will launch the exclusive Holiday Magic Village experience at CityPlace Doral this season. Operated directly by CHP, Holiday Magic Village is the guests’ one-stop-shop for the ultimate holiday photo experience. Under the same roof at CityPlace Doral, families will have access to photos with Santa Claus in Santa’s Workshop and The Grinch’s Grotto™ with The Grinch™ ©Dr. Seuss.

When guests arrive at the Holiday Magic Village, they will be immersed in holiday magic. A newly designed Santa’s Workshop and elaborate Grinch’s Grotto™ are joined by My Photo Op Spot – a virtual photo experience that instantly places guests’ personal photos from their personal devices in festive holiday backgrounds to download, save and share on social media. Guests can snap a selfie or upload photos already taken from their device using CHP’s My Photo product. This proprietary software removes the background of the photo like magic. Guests can scan the QR code displayed in the queue at the photo experience. My Photo Op Spot offers an opportunity for families, friends, and children to appear in different holiday backgrounds - making it easy to celebrate the holiday magic with everyone no matter where they’re located. Guests can tag their friends when they share on social media with the #MyPhotoOpSpot.

Of course, Santa and the Grinch™ wouldn’t have come to CityPlace Doral if they didn’t think that it was safe to visit with everyone. All CDC Safety Guidelines for COVID-19 will be followed. To create a safe experience, guests must book the photo experience in advance at The Holiday Magic Village will not accommodate walk-up guests; however, guests can book same day reservations with no additional fee.
