If you thought the toughest part about waiting in line to visit Santa Claus was trying to make sure your baby didn’t cry, listen up.

Woodfield Mall is now taking appointments for chat time with jolly old St Nicholas, for ten bucks.

The Minion-themed ice palace opened Thursday at the mall.

A visit with Santa is free and no appointment is necessary.  But for the first time ever, Woodfield is charging a nonrefundable fee for an appointment.  The money can be used toward a photo package.
