Holidays at Disney Springs

November - December 2015


2015 Information - As Downtown Disney transitions into Disney Springs, "Holidays at Disney Springs" will include many popular favorite holiday traditions.  The toy soldier stilt walkers, Snowflake performers, a Kwanza Celebration, Hanukkah medleys, holiday entertainment, specialty foods and festive decor will all return.  Santa will be back, but will be located in a new area across from Ghirardelli Ice Cream Shop. 

New additions will include holiday photo backdrops in the Marketplace and West Side that are made to look like pop-up greeting cards. Three new holiday trees will be on display and will be unique to Disney Springs.

More info will be added to this page as it gets closer to the holiday season.


Downtown Disney Marketplace - 2014

At Downtown Disney you can enjoy the Festival of the Seasons. Window shopping takes on a whole new meaning as you enjoy the wonderful holiday displays celebrating traditions from different cultures.  


At the Marketplace, you'll find Santa Claus waiting to greet you at his chalet in front of the World of Disney store. You can take your own pictures or use PhotoPass. When Santa leaves to deliver presents around the world, Santa Goofy will take his place!

Guests will get pagers if the wait exceeds 30 minutes (or they can choose to receive a text message instead).  When their pager goes off and they return to Santa's Chalet, they will have about a 20 minute wait.
