Meeting the Disney Characters is great, but Santa is the main man this time of year! He makes his way to Disney World to meet guests at Disney Springs. He even has his own home at Santa’s Chalet!

But waiting in line can be stressful especially when you have little kids in tow.

This year, you won’t have to wait in line because Santa has gone high-tech with a virtual queue!

Santa has arrived in Disney Springs, and now you can meet him without waiting in line!

Santa has arrived in Disney Springs, and now you can meet him without waiting in line!

Here’s how it works:

  • Check in with Santa’s Helpers at the podium, which is located across from Once Upon a Toy in the Marketplace section of Disney Springs, and give them your cell phone number.
  • You’ll be placed in the virtual queue and given an estimated wait time. Feel free to go shop, grab something to eat, or just walk around until your return time.
  • When your time is up, you’ll get a text. You’ll then have 10 minutes to return to Santa’s Chalet.
  • You will have a short wait in the real queue until you get to meet the head elf!

Make sure you have your list ready!
