PHOTOS: Meet Santa Claus With Virtual Queue at Once Upon a Toy in Disney Springs

Guests can now visit Santa Claus in Once Upon a Toy at Disney Springs. As announced a few days ago, guests wishing to meet Santa will need to join a virtual queue after their arrival at Disney Springs.

Guests must be at Disney Springs to join the virtual queue, which opens up times at 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on My Disney Experience. We visited in the early afternoon and were able to join the virtual queue with no issue.

As with other Walt Disney World virtual queues, guests are given a group number. We were also given a return time. Santa meets between 10:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. daily and a projected wait time is posted.

We virtually waited about 40 minutes and then returned to check in. My Disney Experience will have a QR code for the Cast Member to scan and confirm your group.

Though a sticker queue was set up inside, we didn’t have to wait at all once inside.

A huge section of the store has been cordoned off for Santa.

Red curtains are around the edge of the queue and the meet-and-greet area.

  1. This is terrible! What happened to the outdoor Santa workshop outside at the end of the Christmas tree trail? This is a real disappointment as we’ll have to wear masks because it’s inside. Not a great change in a Covid year.
