Frequently Asked Questions

Who needs a ticket? 
Anyone ages 12 months – 18 years. Adults do not need a ticket, but are welcome to attend.

Where are my tickets?
Actual tickets are not provided.  We have each reservation listed by the last name of the person who booked the reservations.  Check-in begins 20 minutes before your scheduled event.

Will my child get to meet Santa personally?
Each child will have the opportunity to visit with Santa individually. We recommend bringing your letter to Santa. Click here for a printable letter to Santa.

What is the inclement weather policy?
Cookies with Santa is a winter event and will take place rain or snow. However, if the roads are closed by the Illinois Department of Transportation, we will reschedule or issue refunds. Curtis Orchard is not responsible for travel delays caused by accidents, road closures, road construction, weather, etc. Please use your judgment and allow ample time to arrive prior to your scheduled event.

I have health and safety concerns:

This event is designed to minimize a large crowded gathering by not serving a full breakfast and seating guests. We have timed entries to alleviate lines and will have cookie decorating stations spread out for maximum comfort for our guests.
