LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ – Paparazzi seeking THE photograph of the holiday season will have the opportunity to catch one of the world’s most beloved celebrities out of his element this December.
Santa Claus, who among the world’s most experienced travelers, has decided to enjoy some rest and relaxation and is taking off to spend the weeks leading up to Christmas at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort.
Temporarily ditching his red suit for some swim trunks and tropical shirts, Santa will be laying back at the Grotto pool, resting up on his Heavenly Bed and indulging at the resort’s 17 restaurants and lounges. And while the elves are preparing his winter sleigh, he’ll be riding around in style in his personalized golf cart.
It won’t be all play for Santa during his Florida vacation though, he will be taking the time to meet with boys and girls of all ages, gathering wish lists and taking photos in his Florida tiki hut, his customized Florida base complete with beach chair, holiday lights, mail box for letters to Santa, flamingos and reindeer on surf boards.
“The North Pole winters are frigid. Even I like to get away and spend some time in the Florida sun,” said Santa. “I’ll be finishing up my list while on vacation, so I invite everyone to come and visit me at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin. Ho, ho, ho!”
Santa arrives and will start appearances at the resort on Dec. 3. Guests can visit with him every Thursday through Sunday until Dec. 23 when he has to get back to work.
