We all know that the Disney parks are decorated beautifully during the holiday season, but did you know that you can also get a little Christmas in Disney Springs? In recent years, Disney Springs has put up a “Christmas Tree Trail” which includes themed trees from Disney characters and Disney movies. New trees are added each year – with this year including the following themes: Haunted Mansion, Star Wars, Four Parks (with a monorail), Nordic Winter and Nostalgic Mickey & Minnie.
The magic begins on November 8, 2018 and runs through January 6, 2019. There are a total of 27 trees. The trail is complete with Christmas music, falling snow and of course – the gorgeous themed trees. We have been the past 3 years and last year they had Photopass photographers stationed throughout which was a nice touch! The trail is open from 11:00am to 11:00pm. At the end of the trail, you’ll also find Santa’s Chalet where you can meet the man himself! Santa will be there November 8, 2018 to December 24, 2018, 11:00am – 11:00pm. The line for Santa can get long, so you can check in at the podium, give your cell number to one of Santa’s helpers, then go shop, eat or just enjoy the sights. You will receive a text message notifying you when to return to take your place in line to meet Santa!
Here are some pics from our trips to the Christmas Tree Trail – I seriously want to pack up these trees and take home to decorate my house!
One of my favorites – Minnie Mouse tree!
As I mentioned, last year they had Photopass photographers stationed in the trail, here’s one of us and you can see the “snow” falling around us.
I can’t wait for another visit this year to see the new trees! Don’t forget there’s also special Christmas/Holiday themed shopping, eating & holiday performances at Disney Springs. While there try one of my favorite quick service restaurants – Blaze Pizza or Polite Pig! You can find a list of holiday happenings at Disney Springs here.
