If you and your family are hoping to meet Santa during your holiday visit to Disney California Adventure, you’re in luck! The best Santa meet and greet at the Disneyland Resort is in Redwood Creek Challenge Trail!
This redwood forest themed playground and obstacle course is fun for kids and adults, with slides, tire swings, ropes courses, and beautiful scenery. During the holiday season, the different areas are rethemed and decorated with festive garlands and more!
We love meeting Santa in this spot every year because the actual photo location is a little secluded from the park itself, which allows each family to have their own quiet minute talking with Santa and taking photos without feeling rushed. While the wait for Santa can get quite long throughout the day, guests can usually chat with Santa’s elves to help pass the time.
Redwood Creek challenge trail also offers a snack cart with cookies, hot chocolate, and delicious hot buttered rum for the grown ups. You can also complete a Christmas themed scavenger hunt, and you could run into Chip and Dale as you explore.
