It can be a corporate event, a school event, a family event, they are all fun. Travel can be arranged, we need to know how much magical food the reindeer team will need. The details can all be worked out to determine the fees. We look forward to being in touch to make memories happen. Available for commercials, promotionals, cameo appearances.

Santa Dan was exactly what we were looking for here at Olathe Trading Post & Pawn! He was tender and caring with the children, making them feel comfortable sitting on his lap to tell him what they wanted for Christmas and to have their picture taken together. An extra bonus for us was that Santa Dan speaks Spanish since we have a number of Hispanic customers.
We are so glad Santa Dan helped us celebrate Christmas with our store guests! He was jolly, kind, sincere and professional as he greeted every child who came to share their Christmas list with him and have their picture taken together.
An added bonus for us was that Santa Dan speaks Spanish. A number of our guests this past weekend were Hispanic and he made it possible to break the language barrier.
When I said "Pert Near PERFECT", the only two things I would change would be for Santa Dan to bring a small, individually wrapped Candy Cane as his gift to each child. Lastly, I would recommend he add more "Ho, Ho, Ho! Merry Christmas" though out his visit.
I highly recommend Santa Dan to anyone looking for a GREAT Santa for their Christmas season celebration!
We took 1,181 photos on Saturday and Sunday, so I don't have time to look through them all as I'm writing this review, but I've attached a few to share. We photographed newborns to people in their 80s and 90s and all ages in between. It just goes to show...you're never too young...or old, to visit Santa!
Merry Christmas from

Response from Santa Dan:
Thank you for your very kind words. More "HO HO HO, Merry Christmas" are being added with joyous resound. Candy canes are available for a small additional fee. No request for candy canes was received. Thank you, again, for the very kind words. Christmas blessings and holiday cheer to you and all yours. Santa Dan
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dan. From my very first inquiry, he was quick to respond, extremely easy to work with, and genuinely interested in making the event we hired him for amazing. I put on the Kansas City baby fair and booked Santa Dan for my "babies first's" show. In a five hour period, dan had over 300 newborns, toddlers, and big kids visit him, PLUS hundreds of expecting mothers and couples. I'm not sure how he did it, but he maintained this genuine appearance of delight and amazing understanding of children from the very first kiddo to the very last. He was able to connect with every child with very minimal effort, it seemed. He knew what to say, when to hold back, when to just reach out with his hand, and when to give a big hug in order to make every single child open up and interact with him. Usually you see tons of kids cry when meeting Santa and I literally only saw ONE out of the hundreds who visited with him!!
My favorite moment in the whole process and when I knew we had the right man occurred when we asked him to meet us to do a Facebook promo. This was an additional ask from us that he did not evencharge us for! We went to a local mall and shot a live video from a play place. Dozens of children came up to him to get their pictures taken with Santa, and I noticed one especially quiet boy sitting near him who wasn't talking or interacting much. Dan heard the boy's father speak to him in Spanish, and Dan said something to the boy in his language. That child's face lit up and I literally saw the delight and magic of the moment when this young boy smiled and held Santa's hand for a picture.
Dan is kind, good humored, and a huge benefit to the world of Santas. From his real beard, real belly, and laugh that sounds exactly like you would imagine Santa's laugh should be straight from the story books, (even when not in character!) to his outfit and bag, you might Think for a moment that you stumbled upon the real Santa!
If you are looking for the real Santa Claus, stop and read this!
Thank you Dan for the most amazing day, and I look forward to working with you in any future events!
