    When and where does Santa make an appearance at Disney World? We have a trip planned for October 27th - November 3rd and I would love for my kiddos to see Santa on our trip. Is this too early?

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Brady! Santa does, indeed, visit a few locations at Walt Disney World Resort for you to visit and watch him laugh like a bowl full of jelly!

    You are visiting the parks in the very early part of the winter holiday season, and I’ve known Santa to still be working at the North Pole until the early days of November, so you may want to keep your eyes on the Disney Parks Blog for official announcements of Santa’s arrival. My favorite place to meet Santa is in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, on Sunset Boulevard. He takes over the Once Upon a Time shop to greet you and take photos in seasonal style. Santa will visit this area until Christmas Eve, when Santa GOOFY will take over for silly and fun photos while Santa officially works and then rests. You can also see Santa at the American Pavilion in Epcot, as well as in Magic Kingdom’s Town Square area during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (these parties start November 8th, 2018). Santa has been known to greet guests here during the day, but please check your Times Guide upon arrival. I’m not sure that he will be there yet!

    If I can help you find more seasonal fun for your trip, please let me know. I know that your family would adore the spooky fun at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, but you may have to wait a few days for wintery fun to begin. We’ll see ya’ real soon! ~ Lindsey P.
