Santa Claus will be returning to his holiday home on the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, and you’ll be able to meet him throughout the entire festival. The whole trail has been transformed for his visit and will feature seasonal games, festive decor, and of course, Kris Kringle himself.


As far as food goes, the Festive Foods Marketplace will be returning. Specific menus haven’t been announced yet, but these marketplaces serve up some delicious holiday-themed snacks, treats, and drinks.
