    how do I go about getting christmas gifts into our disney hotel room but want it to look like Santa Clause has come to visit

    Hi Samantha! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Can I just start by saying how I admire you for planning a secret Santa surprise for your family? A trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is certainly magical, but it will be SO much more with this personal touch - it's going to be unforgettable!

    The first step to make it look like Santa Claus came to visit is to get in touch with the fantastic team at Disney Floral & Gifts. If you're staying for more than one night, you can plan a surprise per night and then have Santa Claus visit on the last night.

    You can start with the delivery of a gorgeous Mickey Christmas Tree on the first night! It is 30'' tall and made with fresh holiday greens that smell fantastic. It's also skillfully decorated with classic Disney ornaments, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse plushes, Mickey Ears and Lollipops. It will be placed in your room when you're not there, so it's a great surprise for the whole family.

    When it's time to have Santa Claus visit, you have two brilliant options. The Dreaming of a Disney Holiday surprise comes with treats, plushes and gift bags and is an excellent option if you don't intend to buy the gifts yourself and are looking to surprise the family. If you are planning to buy gifts, hide them on suitcases and have them delivered by Santa Claus, you can choose the Santa Sack – Create-A-Gift option, stuff it with some Disney goodies and arrange the gifts in your room before the rest of the family arrives.

    I had the Santa Sack delivered to my room once, and I can still feel the goosebumps - it was incredible. I hope these options help you share this feeling with your family, Samantha. I wish I could be there to see this Christmas celebration, as I'm sure it will be unforgettable.

    If you have more questions, please, come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We are here to help you make it as magical as it can be!

    May the magic of Christmas be with you,
