Meet Santa Claus

You can meet Santa Claus at Disney Springs for FREE and the best part is you don’t even have to waste time standing in line. You check in at the front kiosk and to enter a virtual queue. They ask for your name and phone number and send you a welcome text. You’re then free to walk through the Christmas Tree Trail, shop around or even go eat while waiting. They send you a text when it’s time to return and you will wait in a short line to then meet the big guy himself.

Stitch’s Holiday Gift Hunt

Stop by the welcome center or the PhotoPass studio and pick up Stitch’s Holiday Gift Hunt book. This scavenger hunt takes you all around Disney Springs to find Stich (and savings) all over! Complete the game by using the stickers in the back to mark where you’ve been and then return it to where you started for a surprise.

Free Chocolate

Don’t forget to stop by Ghirardelli for a Peppermint Bark chocolate candy sample. They allow one per person (even babies which meant double for me).

PhotoPass Center

If you’re an annual passholder or are visiting the parks and have Memory Maker, stop in the PhotoPass photo studio. They have special holiday themed backdrops and can even take a family portrait for your holiday cards. Photos are free to download if you have Memory Maker or PhotoPass.
