NEW YORK - If meeting Santa Claus is on your wish list this holiday season, you better act fast. 

Reservations are required this year to have a one-on-one with St. Nick at Macy's Herald Square. 

It's part of a plan to speed up wait times, while keeping the holiday tradition alive at the store's famous Santaland.

Starting this Monday, parents can register on Macy's website anywhere from 30 minutes to five days ahead of time.
