A holiday visit to Disney Springs isn’t complete until you visit the Christmas Tree Trail. Enjoy this 80 picture photo tour!
When you visit Walt Disney World in Florida this Holiday Season, be sure to stop by Disney Springs as well. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, and things to do and see while in Disney Springs. It’s beautifully decorated for the season with lights, wreaths, and garlands. Besides the decor, there are shows and events in the Marketplace Stage.
Always check out the CALENDAR before you visit so you can see what fun things they have going on.
But the real reason to visit Disney Springs this year is The Christmas Tree Trail!!
The Christmas Tree Trail debuted in 2016 with 15 trees and over 400,000 guests visiting it. In 2017, they added 5 more trees and over 950,000 guests came to visit the trees. Now in it’s third year, they are adding even more trees and are expecting even bigger crowds. Everyone just loves when Disney puts their mark on the holidays! So festive and fun!
See the trees in Disney Springs from November 8, 2018 – January 5, 2019 between 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM. (Times are subject to change without notice)
You’ll find the Christmas Tree Trail, near the play fountain outside of Once Upon a Toy. Guests will enjoy a walk-through this wonderland filled with trees decorated with Disney imagery, ornaments for purchase, and plenty of fun pixie dust. Along the way, you can even take photos with Santa in Santa’s Chalet. (Plan ahead for very long wait times!)
Get ready to wander the trail and take plenty of photos of the 27 trees along the trail!
Disney Springs’ Christmas Tree Trail
Mickey and Minnie Mouse
The Mickey and Minnie Christmas Tree kicks things off with their tree starting the Christmas Tree Trail. The tree is full of red, yellow, black, and white ornaments. Large bells and Mickey shaped sparkly ornaments are so fun and festive. Plus, there are so many polka dots!
Hint Hint… you might want to take a close look at the tree if you are playing along with Stitch’s Holiday Gift Hunt! 🙂
Pluto is Mickey’s #1 pal so his tree obviously had to come next! The tree is loaded up with dog toys and large yummy bones. (Think your dog will like those dog toys? Then get them! Disney sells dog toys!) Of course, it’s topped with a decorated dog house!
Beauty and the Beast
You’ll feel like you are at the Beast’s Castle when you are admiring the beauty of this Beauty and Beast Christmas tree. Belle’s favorite books are tucked into the tree, as well as large yellow ribbons and large candle sticks. Small candelabras are also beautiful ornaments that are mixed in with your favorite character ornaments.

I bet the fairy godmothers helped Aurora decorate her beautiful tree! They certainly left their mark with their hats that are decorating the tree. It is bright and colorful with the balls of yarn and large flowers that Aurora loves. It’s no wonder why Aurora’s character ornament is a swirling Princess. So happy!
Elsa has cast a spell on this magical tree! It’s frosty and sparkly. It’s so icy that you might need to grab a pair of ice skates to skate the afternoon away. We just need to make sure that Sven stays far away from the tree, or he might eat the carrots tucked into the tree.
Snow White and her 7 dwarfs were busy decorating this tree with beautiful spring time flowers. Just be sure not to eat any apples from that wicked witch
The ghosts of the Haunted Mansion decorated a spooktacular tree. Unfortunately, they trapped a spooky haunted bride and she is looking for her next husband. Oh no!!!
