Kaitlyn's Disney Movie Kaitlyn’s 2nd Disney movie, “The Search for Santa Paws”, was released to DVD today. Kaitlyn plays the lead role of a cute little orphan named Quinn. Disney’s synopsis of the movie is below:

In the tradition of Disney's classic holiday tales comes a heartwarming movie about the power of giving and the true meaning of Christmas. Discover how the legendary friendship of Santa Claus and Santa Paws began in the inspiring original film, The Search For Santa Paws.

When Santa and his new best friend, Paws, discover that the boys and girls of the world have lost the spirit of the season, they take a trip to New York City. But after Santa loses his memory, it's up to Paws, a faithful orphan named Quinn (America's Got Talent's Kaitlyn Maher), her new friend Will (The Game Plan's Madison Pettis) and a wonderful group of magical talking dogs to save St. Nick and show the world what Christmas is really all about.

“The Search for Santa Paws” is available today in most retail stores. CLICK HERE to visit the movie’s website for more photos, wallpapers, video clips, music, and fun activities.

Kaitlyn at the NIH Children's InnKaitlyn and Disney teamed together as she visited with kids and their families at the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH’s) Children’s Inn and they watched her new movie “The Search for Santa Paws.” Children and families travel from all over the world to the NIH and the warmth and camaraderie of The Inn stand in sharp contrast to the isolation of a hotel room. The Inn gives kids a place to be kids for a while, instead of patients.


Upon arriving, Kaitlyn was taken to the room where all the kids and their families were gathered. They had a brief Q&A time to start things off where the kids got to ask Kaitlyn all sorts of questions about how the movie was made, how she liked it, what her favorite things were about making the movie, and a few other questions. Then Kaitlyn sat with all the kids and enjoyed the movie with them. Afterwards, Kaitlyn sang the movie’s catchy original song "I Believe" and then participated in some additional Q&A. She loved interacting with the kids and it showed in how receptive they were to her too. Finally, all the kids received the goodie bags from Disney containing “The Search for Santa Paws” Blu-ray-DVD pack and plush dog!!! Kaitlyn then had fun signing autographs – one child even asked Kaitlyn to sign his forehead... which she of course thought was too cool!
