Visiting Santa

We will be in the park Dec 6, 7, 8th and will need to plan a time for the little ones to visit with Santa. Can anyone give us any details? Are there show we need to plan for? Are there photo ops with the jolly ole elf? We have been able to find out that he will be at Big Thunder Ranch but we cannot find any hours etc. Also, if you know when he will be there any idea of the best time to avoid the most crowd. We are traveling with 2 year old twins and a 6 month old

They only release the hours of activties on an entertainment schedule they have with the guide maps when you go in. Go to www.disneyland.com and they have a listing of Christmas activities..but not the times for them.

We are going to DL for Christmas and I have been doing some research about Santa. You can find him in all three DL hotels each has a different theme and background. I think I read that DL does not post times for him and sometimes there is a photopass person with him,but not always. You can find Santa at DCA on Buena Vista Street in the shop Elias and Co. and in DL at the Jolly Jingle Jamboree(or something like that). I've read that Santa ,Ms. Claus and other Disney characters are there and dressed for the holidays
