    Hi We have a reservation at Hollywood & Vine on 2nd January. Could you please confirm whether Santa Goofy will be at the meal or whether we need to visit him in the park prior to December 31st? Many thanks

    Hi Melanie Jayne!

    Thanks for coming to see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you are getting ready for an incredible vacation and I'm happy to help you with your plans. The holidays are the perfect time to visit Walt Disney World Resort! I love the beautiful holiday decorations, the tasty holiday treats and the special entertainment throughout the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs. Be sure to make a trip to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa so you can see the life-size gingerbread house!

    I'm glad to hear that you are planning on enjoying Minnie's Seasonal Dining at Hollywood & Vine. I love this Character Dining experience, especially during the holiday season, because it's so much fun to meet Minnie and her friends in their holiday outfits while you are enjoying a fantastic buffet lunch or dinner. In previous years, Santa Goofy is greeting Guests as they enter Hollywood & Vine to be seated to enjoy their meal. Keep in mind that Character appearances are always subject to change, so if Santa Goofy is on your "must-do" list, you may want to plan on meeting him before December 31 while you are enjoying the Flurry of fun at Disney's Hollywood Studios so you can make sure to meet him during our trip!

    Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
