Okay, everyone. I got to meet Santa yesterday and I was reminded of just how much I love that jolly guy. He even told me he remembers all the Christmas wishes I made as a kid! I hope I get what I asked for this year...

There are a number of places you can choose from to take your photo with Santa, but we've compiled this list of some of the best here in DFW.

We hope you've been nice!

#1: Santa's Village at the Dallas Galleria

When: Through December 24 (Click here for Santa's Daily Schedule)

Where: Dallas Galleria - North Dallas, Level 1, near Banana Republic

Cost: Package Prices Available

The Galleria has a new winter wonderland for you to explore this year! Visit the new Santa's Village to have your photo taken with Santa. You can also take your photo in front of the holiday village mural and post on Instagram using the hashtag #GalleriaHoliday for a weekly chance to win a $100 Galleria Dallas gift card. And when you're done exploring the holiday village, check out all the other holiday events going on at the Galleria including Illumination Celebration, ice skating performances, and even a holiday circus.

#2: Northpark Center

When: Through December 24

Where: Northpark Center - Dallas, Level 1 in Macy's Court

Have you ever wondered what Santa's house looks like? Visit Northpark Center in Dallas and you can visit with the big guy in his cozy living room by the fireplace. Tickets to visit with Santa are available starting at 9:00am Monday-Saturday and 10:00am on Sunday. And the first visits start at 11:00am on Monday-Saturday and 12:30pm on Sunday. If you want an early time slot, we'd recommend getting there early to stand in line for a ticket. And once you have your ticket, there's plenty to do while you wait  - you can shop around the mall,  listen to Storytime with Santa Claus, check out the trains, or eat at one of the delicious restaurants.

Your little ones will love visiting the Ice Palace at the Shops at Willow Bend which houses a 30-foot ice dome complete with snow falling, a light show and more! You can also check out the larger-than-life snow globes, leave an icy handprint and sit on the Ice Throne. And at the end of your visit, you'll receive a special gift from him! If you don't want to wait in line, you can purchase a Fast Pass. Santa is available for visits from 10:00am-9:00pm Monday-Saturday and 12:00pm-6:00pm on Sunday with occasional milk & cookie breaks.

#4: Santa at The Star

When: Through December 24

Did you know that Santa is apparently a Cowboys fan? I mean, it makes sense, right? This year, maybe consider visiting Santa inside his Dallas Cowboys cottage. Appointments are required to visit Santa and there is a maximum of 5 children per appointment. You'll also be required to put down a $40 deposit upon making your appointment.

Where: The Founders Building, 701 S. Main St, Grapevine
