Santa’s Holiday Visit is back once again this year at Disney California Adventure giving you the chance to mingle with Mr. Kringle himself plus partake in a slew of elf games and a few other treats.

The Redwood Creek Challenge trail plays host to Santa and his elves but may have different operating hours than the park itself. Showtimes are subject to change so always check the Disneyland App on the day of your visit for the most accurate information.


Meet Santa

Sign his Nice List guest book (he’ll check it twice) and then get ready to cuddle up with the man in red. Plus, his elves are handing out candy canes as long as you’re sweet enough!
