PHOTOS: Santa Claus and Holiday Cavalcades Are BACK in Disney World!

It may only be the middle of November, but we’ve been celebrating the holidays for weeks in Disney World now!

It’s the holidays at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

And, it seems like there’s almost always something new to spot. Recently, we’ve seen more hotels put up their giant Christmas trees, watched as Disney filmed some performances for the upcoming ABC holiday specials, and more. And, now even the characters that you can spot in the parks are getting in the holiday mood!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

In Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the Santa Claus Merry Motorcade is now making its way down Hollywood Boulevard once again! It kicks off with some dancing elves that have presents in hand…

Here it comes!

…and they’re followed up by Pluto in his reindeer ears

Hey Pluto!

…and, of course, a reindeer.

We always love seeing the reindeer!

And, it caps off with Santa Claus himself cruising down the street in a convertible!


You can spot it at 10:15AM, 11:15AM, 12:15AM, 1:45PM, 3:45PM, and 5:15PM every day in the park (though this is subject to change).

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Over in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Holiday Flotillas have also returned so throughout the day you can spot Donald and Daisy in their festive outfits…

Donald and Daisy!

…plus, even Mickey and Minnie changed up their looks for the season.

Mickey and Minnie!

And, it wouldn’t be Christmas without Santa, right? He makes his way down Discovery River throughout the day too! Be sure to check your My Disney Experience app for the exact times that you can spot each flotilla!

Santa is officially in town!

We haven’t spotted Santa Claus over in EPCOT just yet, but you can also see him at Magic Kingdom during Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours event on select nights or in Disney Springs. Of course, we’ll continue to keep an eye out for more exciting holiday happenings in the parks, so be sure to stay tuned to AllEars for the latest!
