ASGA is excited to offfer not one, but four Adapted North Pole Adventures this year for individuals with disabilities and their families!  Put on your pajamas and board the train for a magical ride to the North Pole.  We look forward to seeing the beautiful lights and enjoying a visit with Santa! 

You will enjoy:

  • Social narrative to review before the trip.
  • Separate line at station to obtain tickets.
  • Reduced crowd with 48 seats - not 70-80 like regular coach car.
  • Activity kit with crafts and games to do at the table during idle time.
  • Drinks and snacks including hot chocolate, cookies and other dietary friendly options.
  • Letter to Santa writing activity - template for all communication types.
  • Visit with Santa.table car
  • Commemorative gift bag for each family including a North Pole Adventure mug for each person.


What is the cost?

Cost Per Person is $70.00.

  • The train car has tables that seat 4 people, so tickets must be purchased in packages of two - 2, 4, 6, or 8. 
  • If your child is under the age of two, no ticket will be required, but they must sit in an adult’s lap for the entire ride.


NOTE:  If you receive services from a County Board of DD, check with your SSA as you may be able to use family engagement funds to cover TWO TICKETS to the event (one ticket for the individual served and one adult to accompany them).  ASGA can invoice some County Boards directly, so you may not need to pay out-of-pocket and get reimbursed. Please email Lisa Thompson, Senior Director of Programs to discuss your individual situation.
