    What date will Santa start making appearances at California Adventure? Will a fastpass be available or can reservations be made to see him?

    Ho Ho Ho, Belinda! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel and asking your question!

    Santa Claus will be arriving at the Disneyland Resort soon to chat with all the good boys and girls about their wish lists this year. You can expect Santa to start making appearances at the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail in Disney California Adventure Park on Friday, November 10, 2017. FASTPASSES and reservations are not available to meet him, but he typically meets all day long to accommodate as many Guests as possible. Santa also makes appearances at the three Disneyland Resort Hotels, but those schedules aren't quite available yet. Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog as your travel dates approach for more information.

    November 10th also marks the official start of the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort. Lights, Christmas trees, wreaths, and garland will deck nearly every hall in the parks and in the Disneyland Resort Hotels. You can also enjoy A Christmas Fantasy Parade and the "Believe...in Holiday Magic" Fireworks Spectacular starting on this day.

    I hope you have a very merry time at the Happiest Place on Earth this holiday season!
