    When will Santa start appearing at Downtown Disney this year?

    Hi Kari,

    You are arriving at Walt Disney World in mid-November, just as all the parks and resorts are gearing up for the holidays and donning their decorations. It's a wonderful time of the year.

    The official starting date for Festival of the Seasons at Downtown Disney, which includes daily appearances by Santa, has not been released yet. However, the festival -- and Santa -- arrived on Nov. 16 last year, so I would expect the start date to be similar for 2013.

    The official dates should be announced soon. When they are, they will be posted on the site I linked above.

    Wishing you a fabulous visit. Please let us know if we can help in any other way as you make your plans. Enjoy!
