If you’re headed to Disney World for the holidays this year, there will be plenty to do!
Not only is there a brand new after hours event that has replaced Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, but the famous resort gingerbread displays are back, AND there are holidays projections in the parks! Also, Disney released dates for the Festival of the Holidays in EPCOT, but now we’ve got an exciting announcement about the big man himself!
That’s right — we’re talking about Santa Claus! Guests will be able to meet Saint Nick at select locations in Disney World this holiday season.
In Hollywood Studios, you can spot Santa Claus during the holidays as part of the Santa Claus Merry Motorcade.
Over in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you can see Santa as he floats along in a festive flotilla!
In EPCOT, you’ll be able to say “hello” to Santa outside of The American Adventure as he gets ready for the big day. You’ll also be able to say hello to a “Mischievous Barn Santa” in the Norway Pavilion, Père Noël in the France Pavilion, and Father Christmas in the United Kingdom pavilion. These will all be available as part of the entertainment for the International Festival of the Holidays.
In Magic Kingdom, Santa appears during the Very Merriest After Hours event as part of the holiday parade.
Guests at the After Hours event can also stop by and chat with Santa for a little bit (from a distance).
As Disney announces more about this holiday season, we’ll keep you updated. Stay tuned for more holiday news!
