    Is there anyplace to meet Santa Mickey at Disney World other than the Merrytime Mickey Christmas party?

    Hi Lanning! It is starting to become the time to start thinking about the Christmas holidays especially if you have a Walt Disney vacation planned during that time.

    Santa and Mickey are best buddies and therefore you can find them both around the parks during that time. Santa of course is sought after by the young children wanting to make sure he knows what is on their list and that they have been good.

    You can find him and also many times Mrs. Claus in the Magic Kingdom. In the past he has been near Town Hall in his special spot. We know that things can change from year to year so as the time gets closer be sure and check on the location and times as they are announced.

    One of my favorite spots to find Santa is in Epcot. Santa and Mrs. Claus are located in their special spot at the American Adventure pavilion. The meet and greets usually begin in the late afternoon hours and continue in the evening. The lines don't tend to be too long especially if you arrive when the line opens.

    Another good spot to find Santa is in Disney Springs. Since there have been so many changes there with new construction we will have to wait to see where he will be located for his meet and greets. In the past he could be found next to the World of Disney store. I will say that this location is one of the most popular since local families can come and shop and stop to see him and not have to pay for a park ticket.

    Yes, Santa will be back at Walt Disney World in several locations so as the month gets closer keep watch as to the exact spot and times!
