    Is there a special parade with Santa Claus on Thanksgiving Day?

    Hey there, Angela! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It looks like you’ll be enjoying the magic so soon. I bet you are beyond excited! I hope you are packed and ready for a magical adventure. Don’t forget your Mickey ears and Disney-inspired outfits for all the magical photos and memories you’ll be making while there. I hope this is your most magical vacation yet! 

    Angela, Santa Claus makes a special appearance during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in the Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade. The party is not scheduled for Thanksgiving Day, but depending on your dates, you might be able to attend it one evening. I can’t recommend this party enough. It’s my favorite special holiday event!

    You will have the opportunity to say hello to Santa Claus himself at several locations throughout the resort. I love taking my family to see Santa in Disney Springs. This year he’s located near the Christmas Tree Trail that is so fun to walk through, loaded with fun photo-ops! 

    I hope you have an unforgettable Thanksgiving at the most magical place on earth! Enjoy some tasty turkey for me while you’re there! I bet it will be the best tasting Thanksgiving turkey in the world!

    See ya real soon,
