    If you can't make it to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, then don't miss the Festival of the Seasons at Downtown Disney!
    Once Santa has been and gone for a well deserved annual break, Goofy Santa takes over at Santa's Chalet for pictures and fun!

  • A great traditional Christmas atmosphere!

    Christmas is a great time of year wherever you are, but Disney seem to make it all that more special.  Downtown Disney truly celebrates in style with the Festival of the Seasons event!

    Every shop, restaurant and open space enjoys the beautiful adornment of that special Disney Magic, making this a great place to soak in that special Holiday atmosphere in style!

    With Carol singing, live latin, jazz and pop performances, joining forces with street performers and costumed stilt walkers, there's only Santa missing!

    But wait, is it really him?  Is that really Santa having his picture taken with the guests outside his Chalet over by the World of Disney?
