    Will Santa and Mrs. Claus be in Epcot/America Pavilion on Christmas Day? Two years ago schedule said they would be there until 12/30 but the set wasn't even there anymore on Christmas Day. Any experience on how long are they historically there? Thx!

    Hi there, Nicole! 

    I hope you are having a merry time planning your Walt Disney World Resort holiday. Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and bringing us your great question.

    It's hard to guess just how "on schedule" Santa will be with his North Pole duties, but historically he has been greeting Guests, for those last minute requests, through Christmas Eve and then has to head back home to his wintery wonderland. After that, occasionally Santa Goofy has been known to step in to meet with Guests at certain locations through the end of the year. Last year we were able to snag a photo with the jolly goof and it's one of my all-time favorites. Santa meets with his adoring fans all over the world, but Santa Goofy is truly a special experience. 

    Have a magical holiday vacation, Nicole, and please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with.

    Pixie Dust,
