A highlight for many people during the Christmas Season, both young and old alike, is meeting Santa Claus.  A new structure has appeared in the Marketplace Neighborhood of Disney Springs.  It’s time to meet Santa Claus in his Chalet at Disney Springs.

In order to meet Santa Claus you must check in at Santa’s Chalet check-in podium  A fun and festive Cast Member will greet you, sign you in, and hand you a pager.  When it is your turn to step in line to meet Santa Claus, your pager will buzz.  You then return and hop on line to meet the jolly old elf himself.  Be aware that there is still a small line, but it does move fairly quickly.

A Disney Photographer is on hand to capture the moment of your meet-and-greet with Santa Claus.  My mom insisted on sitting on Santa’s lap and he asked her to please leave him some beer and pretzels this Christmas Eve to change things up from the traditional cookies and milk.  Santa Claus has an interesting sense of humor and we left there laughing.  We were an adults-only group and I am quite sure that is the only reason he placed this request.  This meet-and-greet was so much fun and I am happy we decided to visit Santa Claus on this visit to Disney Springs.

Disney Springs has certainly made it easier to meet Santa Claus.  They have done away with the long line of waiting through the simple pager system.  The pagers have a fairly long range as we were able to leave and walk the new Christmas Tree Trail while we waited for our pager to buzz.  We all know how difficult it can be for little ones, and for adults as well,  to wait on line patiently. Be sure to check-in and get your pager.  When your pager buzzes you will know it’s time to meet Santa Claus in his Chalet at Disney Springs!
