    We will be in Disney World at Christmas time, is there anywhere we can take my son to see Santa Claus and possibly sit on his lap?

    Happy to hEAR from you again, Melissa! 

    Can you believe the holidays are just around the corner?! And with it, your magical vacation to Walt Disney World® Resort. Your Christmastime trip would not be complete without a quick visit to see the jolliest man on earth, Santa Claus. Luckily, there are opportunities to catch him at all four theme parks and Disney Springs! 

    • Disney Springs - Located near the newly-expanded Christmas Tree Trail, you'll find Santa's Chalet, a charming hut where Santa is ready to greet guests shopping for that perfect gift.

    • American Adventure Pavilion - Nestled in the heart of Epcot's World Showcase, is Santa's Village - where even Mrs. Claus pays a visit.

    • Magic Kingdom - Find the Countdown to Christmas Calendar near the Town Square Courtyard and you'll find Santa!  

    • Hollywood Studios - Santa goes all "Hollywood" near Sunset Blvd. 

    I hope this helps in planning out your Christmas "Wish List" for finding Santa while on vacation - his lap will be ready to greet your prince.

    Wishing you much merriment,
