    I'm planning a trip to Disney in December. Is there a place for my children to see Santa? Christmas in Disney wouldn't be the same without a talk with Santa :)

    Hi Carla! Santa indeed comes to Walt Disney World in December. He moves around a bit so check with your resort for the times he can be found at several different locations.  If you are lucky enough to see Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Parade Santa will be waving to all the guests at the end of the parade. It is exciting to see him approach as the parade finale!

    One of my favorite spots to see Santa is in Epcot in the American Adventure courtyard. Many times he even brings his wife, Mrs. Claus so the kids can greet them both. He will usually be at this location late afternoon into the evening. Other spots that he has been in the past include the Magic Kingdom next to City Hall and Downtown Disney next to the World of Disney shop. This location seems to have the longest lines since so many of the locals can come and see him without entering a park. If you have a pup you can even bring your furry friend along for pictures!

    Christmas is one of my favorite times to be at Walt Disney World so you have a lot to look forward to!
