Presents were placed under the tree with care – something unique and personalized for each child, in the United Airlines Hanger off of Lagoon Dr. Each child was given a passport to have stamped at activity stations as they travelled through the hanger decorated for the holidays with a North Pole, Frozen theme. Coloring, puzzle books, ornament making/crafts, and a photo booth to take pictures with Santa rounded out the festivities.
Elsa from Frozen and several elves/ helpers joined the party, and ukulele notes rose through the air in this “only in Hawaii” experience!
The big surprise of the morning was Santa arriving on a huge Airliner that drove up to the hanger. Excitement built as the kids heard the plane getting closer and then the hanger doors opened to reveal the plane and Santa exiting the cockpit!
After each child visited with Santa they were given lunch and beverages and a large gift bag with several presents inside. United Airlines employees selected and purchased individual, personalized gifts for each child according to their age and interests!
Our kids loved Santa and the plane and the parents were all very thankful for the personalized touches and all the hard work United Airlines put into the party! This was an event to remember!
