    Hi there, we are arriving at WDW on christmas day! we will be there by 5-6 pm. What are our best options to see and do for the night with two kids 3 and 5. We wanted to see santa claus but he will be probably gone by 25th night! any kinda tips and advice?

    Welcome Shenaz! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    Congratulations on your next Disney vacation!
    Holiday Season decoration brings an extra charm to Disney Theme Parks and Resort Hotels. Your family will have an unforgettable experience!
    As you arrive on Christmas day, I suggest you visit Disney Springs. Disney Parks will be very crowded on this day, I don’t think it would be a good alternative, especially for your kids. 
    You are right about Santa Claus. He will be meeting Guests from November 11 through December 24, 2016 at his chalet in Disney Springs. On December 25, he heads back to the North Pole. When he leaves, Santa Goofy will be there meeting Guests. It could be a wonderful moment for your kids!
    Holidays at Disney Springs are very special this year. Many amazing things going on there. Besides Santa Claus’ Chalet, you can see a nightly tree lighting ceremony, carolers and even a holiday dance party. Make sure you don’t miss the new Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail, a beautiful collection of custom-decorated trees, and the fantastic Starbright Holidays Show - An Intel Collaboration. I am sure your family will make memories that will last forever.
    Hope this helps your planning. Let us know if you have additional questions.
    Have a magical day!
