If waiting in a long line at the mall to see Santa might cause you to land on the naughty list, why not take your family to meet the jolly old elf over a brunch buffet at a Phoenix-area hotel?
Several Phoenix resorts are hosting holiday breakfasts with Santa. Along with the meal, families can get pictures with Santa, decorate cookies or make holiday crafts.
So to help you avoid the lines — and perhaps get a little extra time with Santa if you need to talk your way into his good graces this year — here's where you'll find him mingling over breakfast. Just be sure to make a reservation because these events fill up quickly.
