Santa Claus is Coming to Town — Here’s Where He’ll Be in Disney World in 2021

Disney World is already thinking about and getting ready for the holiday season!

Holidays in Magic Kingdom

This year guests will be able to purchase tickets for a brand new ticketed holiday event (that will replace Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party), check out giant gingerbread displays, take a stroll around EPCOT’s World Showcase on the hunt for cookies, and more! And, there will even be an honorary guest around for the season!

This year, guests will be able to spot Santa Claus at all 4 Disney World theme parks AND in Disney Springs.

Santa is returning to the streets of Disney’s Hollywood Studios and will be greeting guests in a special cavalcade down Hollywood Boulevard.

If you’re not familiar with Disney’s cavalcades, these short “parades” travel down the streets of the park at various times throughout the day.

In EPCOT, fans will be able to wave at Santa as he prepares for the big day outside of The American Adventure pavilion. There will also be other versions of Santa to spot throughout the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays.
