Meet Santa in Disneyland Hotel for Story Time and More During 2023 Holiday Season

Guests visiting Disneyland Resort can meet with Santa at Disneyland Hotel for story time or to share their wish lists with the head elf himself.

Meet & Greet With Santa in Disneyland Hotel

If you’re hoping to spend some time with Santa in Disneyland Hotel, we found a specially set up area for just that purpose on a recent visit.

There was a sign pointing the way to the temporary wonderland.

Lots of lit false trees let us know we had found the right location, even though Santa wasn’t there when we stopped by.

This seating area has a large blue and white upholstered chair set up in front of some lit trees. There was also a sleigh filled with wrapped gifts.

Two blue and white holiday ornament chairs in matching blue and white flank Santa’s large blue chair, so everyone has a comfortable seat for story time or the perfect photo. To help block light and provide a more consistent background for that photo, pipe and drape has been set up behind the scene.

Though we didn’t see Mr. Claus ourselves, we noticed this sign letting visitors know that Santa would be making frequent visits. The sign also indicates that story time will be held at 5 p.m.

Are you planning to meet the man with the bag on your trip to Disneyland Hotel for the holidays this year? Let us know in the comments.
