About 18 children and their families attended the after-hours photo sessions where the kids had 10 minutes to have their photo taken with Santa and tell him what they wanted for Christmas.
Vicky Marraffa, whose son Diego has autism, thanked the centre for extending its photo hours.
‘For four years I have been trying to find quiet times for him to meet Santa,’ she said.
‘It’s difficult to find a time when we don’t have to wait in line or stress about crowds and noise around him.’
All children who saw Santa also received a small gift.
