Just go to My Creations, find the video you want to download, click the Download icon, and your video will download onto your computer or mobile device.

NOTE: Due to browser limitations, downloading is not possible on the Safari browser. We recommend using Chrome.
If you are experiencing problems downloading your video, you can try refreshing the page and clicking the Download icon again.
In some cases, you will need to right click on the download option and select Save link as or Download Linked File As. This will give you an option to name the file, and choose where to save it.

What are the advantages of downloading my Santa Video?
Free Videos are deleted after a short period of time and Premium Santa Videos are archived; but downloading your videos will allow you to revisit fond memories and enjoy your videos until the end of time!
The elves would also like to point out that by using this feature, you can:
1. Keep your videos in MP4 format on any local device.
2. View your videos at any time, even when you are offline.
3. Copy the file to a DVD, USB, or any storage device, to preserve your Christmas memory long after it ceases to be available on Portable North Pole.
4. Publish it on your own website, blog, YouTube channel, etc.
5. View it in widescreen format on your TV.
Plus, the outstanding quality of downloaded videos makes Santa's Village appear all the more magical...
