Quality time with the famous man in red can be a tough get, which is why pre-registration is underway now. Note: pre-registration is only the first step. You'll need to follow up after they respond to nab your appointment.

"If you fail to book your appointment in a timely manner, you may find that all of the appointments have been taken," the elves at Phipps Plaza warn.

They also warn that if you try to game the system by using different emails to register the same kid, you're going straight to Santa's naughty list and might get bumped altogether.

Be nice and fill out the form, once, at this link.
