    Hello! When Santa is visiting the parks, is he there all day? We want to see him at Hollywood studios but the time says 10am. I wasn’t sure if he just arrived at 10 and stays the whole day or when we could get in to see him? Or other places that are good?

    Hi Stephanie,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Santa Claus is busy greeting people throughout the day at Disney's Hollywood Studios. If you check the My Disney Experience app you can find Santa's scheduled times by looking at the "Characters" tab. Santa Claus is very busy this time of year and so while he is greeting guests all day, he does take frequent breaks to tend to other business. 

    Santa Claus is also making stops at Epcot and Magic Kingdom Park but my favorite place to visit Santa is at Disney Springs. Santa's Chalet is in the Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail. When you check in at the Chalet, they will give you a buzzer to return when it's your turn to visit Santa. You can enjoy the beautiful trees on the Christmas Tree Trail or visit nearby shops until it's your turn. 

    Stephanie, thank you for visiting us with another great question. I hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions!
    Wishing you a magical and merry vacation,
    Amy H.
