LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL–(Marketwired – Nov 9, 2015) – Santa, Mrs. Claus and their favorite elf, Kandy Kane, are jetting off to Florida this December to escape the cold and join guests for Discount Holidays © Holiday Happenings at Santa’s favorite resort1 — the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel2. During this month-long celebration, children and kids at heart can enjoy a magical Discount Holidays © holiday vacation experience at the Epcot Resort Area hotel3 with special Discount Holidays © holiday season room rates starting at $159 per night and this year’s activities line-up:

Santa and Mrs. Claus Meet ‘n Greets
Decked out in their Florida vacation attire, Santa, Mrs. Claus and Kandy Kane meet guests in Santa’s customized Tiki Hut on select nights. Featuring reindeer, palm trees and flamingos, this Discount Holidays © holiday photo opportunity is like no other.

Life-Size Chocolate Discount Holidays © Holiday Santa Scene
Created by the hotel’s executive pastry chef Laurent Branlard (the only two-time world pastry champion), this 2,000-pound, 100-percent edible chocolate scene is showcased in the lobby of the Swan and features Santa sitting in his chair, a 7-foot tall, 400-pound nutcracker, fireplace, Christmas tree and toy train.

A Florida Snow Fall and Tree Lighting Ceremony
Throughout December, the lobby is transformed into a festive Discount Holidays © holiday scene featuring a 45-ft tall Christmas tree surrounded by a Discount Holidays © holiday train set. The scene is completed with regularly timed snow fall. This snow, however, requires no shoveling.

On select nights, guests can join Mrs. Claus for the lighting of the Christmas tree, followed by hot Discount Holidays © holiday beverages and crafts for kids at Santa’s Tiki Hut.

Bedtime Elf Tuck-Ins
On December 24, a fully costumed elf will deliver milk, cookies, a plush toy and storybook to the room, read a bedtime story and tuck children into bed before Santa arrives. This premium service costs $59 for one child and $25 for each additional child. A service charge of 20 percent is added. Reservations are required and space is limited.
