    I am visiting this year for Christmas with my almost 10 year old. I am pretty sure this will be her last year believing in Santa so I want to make sure this is extra special. Are there any restaurants offering Santa visits during your meal?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jenna! Christmas and the winter holidays are a magical time at Walt Disney World Resort. The snowy magic in each park is so tangible, especially for kids your daughter’s age!

    While there are no character meals offering visits with Santa, you can typically find him laughing like a bowlful of jelly in a few places around Walt Disney World Resort. Personally, I love to visit the jolly old elf on Sunset Boulevard in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. He has a personalized nook with plenty of festivities and typically not that long of a wait. If you happen to visit after Christmas Eve, Santa GOOFY takes over in all his silly style.  After all, Santa has to rest after his big night. Santa also visits Epcot in the World Showcase, though I don’t believe his schedule is out yet. You can also watch Santa ride in style during the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. This nighttime ticketed event would be a wonderful way for your family to celebrate the magic and watch it snow on Main Street, U.S.A.!

    If I can help you find more merriment, please let me know. And laying a finger aside of my nose, I give a nod, and up the chimney I go! ~ Lindsey P.
