    Hi! Is Santa going to be at the Parks again this year for the Holidays?

    Hi, Gail! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and asking your question.

    I know that a trip to the Disneyland Resort is on the top of my Christmas list, but I can certainly understand providing Santa Claus with a few extra requests during a visit to the parks if I was particularly good this year. The jolly old elf himself will indeed be greeting Guests this holiday season in the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail area of Disney California Adventure Park. Look for the times to meet Santa appear on the Disneyland app when the Holidays officially begin on November 9. Since Santa is needed to deliver gifts to children all across the world, Santa Goofy will take his place from December 25 through January 6. Santa also makes an appearance in A Christmas Fantasy Parade that takes place daily in Disneyland Park. Additionally, in years past, Guests could meet Santa in each of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels a little later in the season. Look for information on these meet and greets on the Disney Parks Blog in the next month or so. 

    While you are spending time in Disney California Adventure Park meeting Santa, be sure to experience the flavors and fun of the Disney Festival of Holidays. There will be musical performances, Disney ¡Viva Navidad! street party celebration, and many Festive Food Marketplace kiosks with all sorts of seasonal food and drink to enjoy. Furthermore, in Cars Land you can take a twirl on Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl and Mater’s Jingle Jamboree which are special attraction overlays just for the season. 

    I hope you have a very merry time at the Happiest Place on Earth!
