When we were at WDW last June, Santa and Mrs Claus were on our bus the last day! Then my husband found this article (not sure if I did it right) i thought this was interesting. Briefly discusses the issue because kids were going crazy over him. Did anyone hear about this or see them? http://screen.yahoo.com/disney-world-vs-santa-claus-30092013.html

You CANNOT have people in the parks pretending to be characters, mascots etc that don't work for Disney. If someone would be rude (or worse) to a park patron, Disney would immediately be blamed for this. If someone looks like Santa they still can be nice to the kids, but signing autographs goes too far. - toogrumpy  141.8 #59 5:27PM
My wife found this article also. We have seen several Santa lookalikes over the years since we go often. We saw a guy last month that was skinnier than this man but could easily pass for Santa. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #20 9:38AM
I live in North Carolina & they were taking about this on the radio one morning. Was right before our trip to WDW a few weeks ago. - DonaldfiveO  28.6 #137 9:55AM
Haha, well, the dude shouldn't wear red with suspenders!! Kind of asked for it in that get-up, lol!! - mrsincredible  1104.6 #6 10:41AM
LOL! I was thinking the same thing. :-D - poohbr1205  21.2 #164 10:56AM
Agree!! Shame on him for not appreciating the fantasy of a child! - mmddgp  790.9 #8 11:32AM
Exactly! Did he think the sunglasses would make him look less like Santa? Shame on him for not wearing Mickey ears and a Mickey tee! :) - BagGal  314.5 #25 11:43AM
I kept thinking where did I see him ? He looks so familiar! Now I remember he looks like the Santa from winter summer land putt putt! Anyone else think so - mmddgp  790.9 #8 1:49PM
That's not Kenny Rogers? - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #20 3:11PM
I thought he resembled Tim Allen from the Santa Claus movie where he was sitting on the bench in plain clothes and had a line of kids to see him around the block!! Bet this guy made the Naughty list for that!! For shame, for shame!! - mrsincredible  1104.6 #6 4:15PM

It was so cute because my kids were in awe! The timing was perfect. We were headed to DQ on our last day before flying home. It just added to the magic. I can definitely see how this can cause chaos at a place like WDW, and I def don't think he should be signing autographs! - Disneyaddict  374.7 #584 11:20AM
Don't wear red shirts and suspenders with long white hair and beard to these places. He has to know that kids are going to go nuts. Secretly, I think he likes it. - jackskellington34  22.0 #159 1:10PM
I totally agree. He prob enjoys the attention and I'm sure the kids love it. My kids were excited when they saw him. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #584 1:15PM
I agree. - 5disneylovers  1144.0 #5 2:03PM
There was a story on him on the news not that long ago....I agree...don't dress the part if you don't want to attention! - ncjal  279.3 #29 3:17PM
We saw a Santa look a like a few years ago at Christmas. - klterzian  5.5 #16750 3:31PM
He needs a shirt that says, "Bah humbug, talk to me and all you're getting this year is a sak of coal!!". LOL - mrsincredible  1104.6 #6 4:17PM
Lol! - disneycm  690.0 #11 4:20PM
Disney did not mistreat him, they were quite fair about it. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #57 4:34PM
You r right. Lack of a better word. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #584 6:14PM
Changed the wording. Hopefully it is better - Disneyaddict  374.7 #584 6:16PM
