Santa Claus Debuts in New Location at the Odyssey for EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays (Photos, Video)

Hi everyone!

Santa Claus is back at EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays in a new festive location inside the Odyssey through December 24th, 2022. We stopped by to meet him.

Here is our video, followed by photos.

The Odyssey opened at 11:00 a.m. for guests to meet Santa and purchase treats and drinks.

There is a design on the windows that extends inside (including on the tables).


Signs outside point guests to Santa.

Here is a look into the room where Santa is located.

The meeting times look to be on long magnets or similar, so check the app for times on the day of your visit just in case.

Santa’s location looks like a winter wonderland.

The sleigh is a photo opp for guests to sit and join Santa.

Santa posed for a few photos.

We did take a seat for photos.

The location includes backdrops around the room that have animation on them (like snow).

Snowflakes are reflected on the ground.

The tabletops include the design.

We didn’t have to wait too long to see Santa today. This is a terrific area for guests to meet him! The first time he was available to guests today was 11:00 a.m. and we met him pretty soon after that.
