Galveston, Texas — Santa Claus is busy making his list, and checking it twice, just in time for Christmas, and Moody Gardens has two chances for guests to find out if they’re on the nice or naughty list and meet the jolly man in person.

Join Santa for a unique holiday experience, complete with a breakfast buffet inside The Garden Restaurant at Moody Gardens on Dec. 9 or 16. Feast on a buffet including scrambled eggs, bacon, breakfast links, home fried potatoes, French toast dusted with powdered sugar, waffles, biscuits with pepper gravy, assorted Danishes, seasonal fresh fruit, coffee and orange juice.

Guests also have the opportunity to have a photo taken with Santa and Moody Gardens’ Ollie the Otter, the perfect souvenir for this special experience with Santa.

Space is limited so reservations should be made early. Seating times are 8 and 9:30 a.m. on both dates. Tickets are $25 for adults and $12 for children ages 5-12. Children age 4 and younger can enter free. To reserve a seat, visit

Continue the holiday celebration after Breakfast with Santa with a stop by ICE LAND: Rainforest Holiday, where guests will journey through the rainforests of the world – all carved from two million pounds of ice. Grab a blue parka and soar from the treetops of the rainforest down to the forest floor on the 36-foot tall Giant Ruins Ice Slide and take in white-faced saki and cotton-top tamarin monkeys, beautiful birds, colorful butterflies, along with towering trees and more inside this frosty attraction.

The beloved television classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer takes on a twist inside the 4D Special FX Theater. Guests will recognize classic songs and dialogue brought to life by iconic characters including the Abominable Snow Monster, Hermey the elf, Santa Claus, and of course, Rudolph “the most famous reindeer of all.”

Don’t miss out on ice skating, zipping down the Arctic Slide and so much more this holiday season. Thinking of making the trip a weekend getaway? Moody Gardens has you covered with the Moody Gardens Hotel right on property giving guests a chance to experience all Moody Gardens has to offer.
