Default Virtual Q for Santa at Disney Springs Holiday Tree Trail

I started to notice FastPass signs for Santa two years ago at the malls.
Now Santa has a virtual queue when you enter the new Xmas Tree Trail in Disney Springs.

We have noticed it the last couple years. Seems like a pretty good idea.

Oh well new to me... I have 2 grandchildren age 12/13 And they have never sat on Santa’s lap for a picture or for any random reason. I tried telling them Santa won’t visit if he doesn’t know what you want. I guess Santa does keep watch cause they always get exactly what they wanted from some random cosmic force that Santa has.
I believe in Santa Claus , and always look for the vintage blacknwhite photos in Antique Malls, etc. Considering millions of children have had photos taken year after year, those seem to be very rarely abandoned by family estates.
Does anybody else have old photos from childhood visits with Santa?

We are going to be at Disney Springs the Friday after Thanksgiving prior to our Disney Cruise leaving on Saturday. I have not heard of this Christmas Tree Trail. Is this a must do? If you have time to explain the logistics, I would be greatly appreciative. Thanks!

We have pictures of our boys with Santa every year. They are 14 and 11 now. We still believe in Santa too. By the way, the setting at HS is beautiful. We plan on getting pictures with Santa in a few weeks.
