    For having been to WDW at Christmas for quite a few years, the only Father Christmas we have seen are UK and France.
    I think we should make the effort to catch each country this year.

    Ohh thanks for the list! I have seen the ones in Canada, France, Japan and China. I think I have managed to miss everyone else.

    I just planned a very short trip for mid Dec!
