Los Angeles Santa Claus Reviews

Best Santa Claus Los Angeles

Ed Taylor is the greatest Santa in the history of Santas. Bar none. Period.  End of story. 

Ed Taylor is so authentic as St. Nick himself, I found myself confused and wondering “Is Santa actually for real and standing in front of me?” He’s a master.

VIRTUAL VISIT
Even though my son was so shy, Santa Ed was fantastic...

We did a Zoom call with Santa. My son was so start struck he could barely speak, but when we got off the call he melted in happiness.

And, even though my son was so shy, Santa Ed was fantastic, asking questions and even getting my son to sing a song with him.

Thank you, Santa Ed, thankfully Christmas 2020 will have at least one very positive memory!

VIRTUAL VISIT
We will remember his call for many years to come!

It was magical!

The kids were so excited to have a Zoom visit with Santa! He was kind, sweet and patient.

My children are 3 and 1. They are busy boys, but Santa listened and was jolly and sweet.

I know we will remember his call for many years to come.

Thank you for the magic and joy you brought into our home.

You are amazing.

VIRTUAL VISIT
Ed, with that smile capable of striking even the memories of us adults...

Magic might seem like a trivial adjective when talking about Santa Claus. But the truth is that in such an upside-down world, the word "magic" takes on a different meaning.

How to tell a 3-year-old girl, who for the first time "feels" the Christmas spirit that what she sees on TV, in cartoons, in stories in books, she cannot live it because there is a tiny cursed virus that obliges to stay at home?

And then, Ed, with that smile capable of striking even the memories of us adults, even with a video call, brings back the magic.

Because after all, he's not one of many Santa Clauses. It is Santa Claus calling from his home, far away, there at the North Pole.

And then Zoom becomes an opportunity to visit Santa Claus at his house, he too closed in the house, like all of us with a common destiny.

The magic becomes a smile on my daughter's face the next morning.

This is my experience. This is my story of a few minutes not virtual, but real, thanks to technology.

Working with Santa Ed was Super easy and super responsive! A real pleasure!

VIRTUAL VISIT
Virtually they had a lot to say...

We loved it!

It was really fun for my kids to have a virtual visit with Santa. In the past when we have visited Santa in person, they have always been afraid to talk, but virtually they had a lot to say.

It was neat to watch and Santa Ed did a great job.

My favorite part was when they told him what they wanted for Christmas and his response was, "I like to bring surprises."

VIRTUAL VISITS
My husband actually loved it the most...

It was a great experience and the kids were super surprised.

My husband actually loved it the most as we didn't have to wait in long lines at the mall like in the past 🙂

It was a much more personal experience and we didn't feel rushed at all.

Everything was organized and went smoothly. I Loved the reminders and the ability to provide some prep information about the kids.

I also loved being able to send a video to the grandparents.

Santa Ed brought a much needed light and holiday cheer onto this tough year for our family.

VIRTUAL VISIT
It was so personal and Santa Ed is beyond authentic...

My 8-year-old son immediately after the call turned to me and said “Dad that was amazing!” and my 5-year-old daughter hasn’t stopped talking about it since.

It was so personal and Santa Ed is beyond authentic.

This is exactly what we needed this year, I was so stressed about how to keep the magic alive and Santa Ed did just that.

I was up late one night with my 11-month-old and started trying to find virtual meetings with Santa and Santa Ed’s site and references sold me. It was initially a very intimidating process because you are so worried about the experience and will Santa be authentic, and after my research, I felt good about booking Santa Ed.

Then when I called prior to the visit and spoke with Santa Ed I was even more sold and more comfortable for the kids to meet Santa in this way.

Thank you for the experience! You kept the magic alive in a year where it seems magic is hard to find.

Not only is Ed Taylor the most convincing Santa Claus I’ve ever seen, he’s also incredibly nice, super easy to work with, and a very funny improviser.

Santa Ed we can’t thank you enough for coming to our Holiday Party! You were so incredibly authentic, kind and fun. You brought so much joy to everyone (big kids and small kids alike)! We couldn’t have asked for more, you truly made it a party to remember—Rioters have been raving about how amazing you were all day!

I’ve attached some of the more memorable photos from the event. Please let me know if you need anything else and thank you again for such a memorable experience. We look forward to having you again next year!

Thank you for being part of our “Breakfast With Santa” event at Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills. Your portrayal of Santa was raved by both customers and staff at the store. You brought so much joy and positive energy to the event. You are the best Santa we’ve ever had here! We look forward to booking you again and again when Christmas comes!

AUTHENTIC! EXCEPTIONAL! PROFESSIONAL!
We had Santa and Mrs. Claus at our world record attempt for the most snowmen built in an hour. We had 800 employees and 400 kids and Santa and Mrs. Claus were a hit with everyone one of them! They engaged the kids and adults alike! We will not hesitate to use them in the future!

Santa Ed was simply the icing on the cake for our Christmas in July day at our bakery! We weren’t slammed with children at one time so it was really great to see him interact with each child. He asked them trivia questions and told them stories. He even brought some presents to give out to a few lucky children! The feedback from parents was overwhelmingly positive! We will definitely have him back!!

Santa Ed was great to work with too! He sent over the agreement right away, called us with details. He was a joy to work with before and during the event.

I really loved working with Santa Ed Taylor. I was doing a photo shoot and even though it was small and one of my first he helped me get the shots I wanted and never made me feel like I was not an important client.

I worked with kids, some harder than others and he handled all of them so easy. He also was such a pro at knowing to always look right for the camera regardless of what the kids were doing. They would eventually fall into place. I got what I needed!!!

Working with Santa Ed was super easy. Contract, responsive, timelines. All very professional.

Santa Ed was great! He was jolly and spirited, and a pleasure to have at our party. Working with Santa Ed was very easy. He wore our requested all white Santa costume, arrived on time, and was fun for all our guests.

Santa Ed made the evening over the top special! He was so wonderful and patient with the kids. He has a great sense of humor so the adults really appreciated him as well. All around it was a fun evening capped off with a great visit from Santa!

Santa Ed was also VERY responsive, always returned emails and phone calls promptly.

Shannon Hoye

This was our second year having Santa Ed visit our home and, in both cases, it was a perfect experience. He arrives on time and the kids love peppering him with questions! A perfect 10. Easy to reach via email, scan back agreements, and then text on the day of for exact arrival time.

Graham Culp

Santa Ed is our holiday treasure! He has visited our home since my boys were very small and has now come to know them and our entire family very well. His holiday joy and spirit is abundant and leaves everyone feeling the magic of the season. Every time I see Ed arriving at our house, the little boy inside of me, smiles and believes. Ed is Santa Claus.

Working with Ed could not be easier. He is responsive, on-time, engages with guests and enjoys his time with you.

Ho Ho Ho! All the way from the North Pole!
AMAZING! Everything about Mr. Santa (Ed Taylor) was spot on! He left me doubting that he really didn’t come from the North Pole!

Your presence could not be compared. Your costume and natural appearance was amazing. You believably look like the real Santa Claus. Your interaction with the children as well as the adults was amazing to watch.

Ed became Santa when he donned his custom-made Santa suit, Santa Ed had a way of making a resistant child want to talk to Santa as he was warm, friendly and welcoming. Many parents and grandparents said that Ed was the most realistic Santa they had ever seen.

Santa Ed was wonderful! I would highly recommend him for any event. So professional and great with the kids.

Santa Ed was amazing and is a MUST for your holiday event.

Don’t look for any other Santa next holiday. Santa Ed is it! From his magical appearance and demeanor, Ed captures every minute detail of the Santa persona. My boys were initially frightened of his entrance but Ed knew how to work the room and they quickly warmed up to him. Eventually, they were sitting on his lap and laughing along with him. My heart just about melted. My children were in awe that Santa knew things about them and really made me feel for a short minute like a kid again. I didn’t want to see him go but I will see him again next year for sure! Thanks Ed for a memorable evening!
