    Hi again Moms! My ? this time is about the lines for Santa in Downtown Disney. What is a typical wait time? Will be there Fri morning Dec 10. Thanks! You guys are awesome!!

    Hi, Lori Anne!  I have three daughters, ranging in age from 19 down to five.  In all those years and all those Santa photos, my absolute favorite one was taken at Downtown Disney.  Santa always looks his best there, and maybe it's the magic and pixie dust floating around, but my kids always give me a good smile and don't seem to mind waiting in line!

    I would say the earlier, the better.  The longest we've ever waited in line for Santa at Downtown Disney was about 30 minutes, but that was with a fairly good sized line.  I try to go earlier in the day, when I'm hoping most people are enjoying the theme parks.  

    My average wait time has been about 15 minutes.  I've stood in line at our local mall longer than that!  but again, go early, beat the crowds, and enjoy the photos!
