Santa has parked his sleigh near Sonny’s Sleds, which plays into the backstory of Blizzard Beach. As the story goes, when a snowstorm hit Florida, the park was built as the state’s first ski resort. However, Florida being Florida, the snow and ice melted. The ski attractions were repurposed into water slides and more.

Santa is taking advantage of his holiday. He’s dressed in vacation apparel, including a straw hat and red high-top sneakers. His shirt is covered in illustrations of himself riding a motorbike, jetskiing, and more. It’s trimmed in white faux-fur, and the buttons are fluffy white baubles much like the one that tops his winter hat.
