    Is Santa Claus at the Disneyland resort to take pictures with?

    Hi, Kristina! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your question!

    The Holidays bring all sorts of merriment to the parks including exclusive entertainment, special overlays on select attractions, and tasty treats just for the season. In the past, Santa Claus has been available to meet and take pictures in the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail area in Disney California Adventure Park. You’ll want to keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog in the coming weeks for any specific announcements about Santa’s arrival. Additionally, when you are in the parks, you can look up exact times and the location to meet Santa on the Disneyland app. 

    While you are in Disney California Adventure Park meeting the jolly old elf, be sure to indulge in all the holiday flavors from around the globe at the festive food marketplace kiosks. The Festival of Holidays brings music, performances, and food from different cultures all to one area of the park. It is certainly not to be missed! You’ll also want to spend some time in Cars Land to enjoy Mater’s Jingle Jamboree and Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl which are special overlays just for the season. 

    I hope this helps. Have a delightful time at the Disneyland Resort!
