We are just under one month away from the start of the Christmas season at Disney World. Although Hollywood Studios has already started decorating, final details are still being announced.

Just today, Disney shared many experiences we can expect to find at the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs this season. This includes a brand new stage show called Mickey and Minnie’s Very Merry Memories. You can read more about this HERE.

For now, however, we are going to focus on where to find Santa Claus this Christmas season. Get those Christmas lists and letters ready! He can be spotted in quite a few spots.

What trip to Disney is complete without meeting Santa Claus? This will surely look different than years past as social distancing and mask wearing continue to be implemented throughout Disney.

You can catch the jolly man himself in various places through December 24:

First, the Santa Claus Merry Motorcade at Hollywood Studios will be happening again this year. See more photos of this HERE.

Second, Santa will be in the flotilla at Animal Kingdom. See more photos from last year HERE.

Third, he can be spotted at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney Springs in various places. Guests will have individual time to meet and share wishes with Santa in these locations.

The experiences at Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom will be socially distanced and more of a “passing by” encounter versus the ones elsewhere. We are looking forward to a more normal holiday experience compared to last year, however.

Are you adding Santa to your touring plans this holiday season? Or, are you planning to skip if social distancing and masks are required? Join the conversation in the comments below and on Facebook.

  1. I would like to know if the Mickey and Minnie Christmas Parade will only be during the after hours event or will they do a C-mas parade during the day also?
