Where to Meet Santa Claus in Disney World

Ho! Ho! Ho! Welcome back to another seasonal post at KatDoesDisney! Can you tell I’m excited for the holidays?! There’s no better way to celebrate than meeting Santa Claus. I’m telling you, Disney World does his meet and greets right! So here is where you can meet Santa Claus in Disney World.

In case you missed them, be sure to check out our best holiday activities at Disney World Part 1 and Part 2!

Disney Springs

This is my favorite location to meet Santa! First, you do not need a ticket to meet him. Second, you can take advantage of their virtual queue and enjoy Disney Springs while you wait! It is a lot of fun to visit Santa in his Chalet and afterwards stroll through the Christmas Tree Trail.

Pro tip: Get there when they first open and put your name on the list! Even with the virtual queue, the waiting time can be long.


My second favorite location to meet Santa Claus in Disney World is in Epcot. Did you know you can meet Mrs. Claus here as well?! Head on over to the American Adventure Pavilion in World Showcase during the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays. You’ll certainly enjoy meeting the merriest couple this holiday season!

Magic Kingdom

Santa Claus meets guests during the holiday season right in Magic Kingdom! As soon as you walk into the park, turn left. His meet and greet location is just between the Fire Department and Town Hall.

Santa Claus Disney World

You can also get a glimpse of Santa in the parade at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party!

Hollywood Studios

Finally, you can meet Santa Claus in DIsney World right on Sunset Boulevard! Head on into the Once Upon a Time gift shop to get that coveted holiday picture.

As with all of these meet and greets, be sure to check out the Disney World Times Guides prior to arrival. That way you’ll know when Santa (and possibly the Mrs.) will be out meeting and greeting!

Until next time… Cheers!!
