Snow. Christmas carols. Tasty holiday treats. Trees decorated with your favorite Disney characters. Where can you experience all of this holiday magic in just one place? The Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs, of course!
The Christmas Tree Trail is back and bigger than ever this year! Not only will you find 27 intricately decorated trees (three of which are brand new!), you’ll also have the chance to meet Santa, shop for ornaments, and enjoy exclusive holiday snacks.
Christmas Tree Trail Snacks
In case you get hungry while strolling along the Christmas Tree Trail, several sweet and salty holiday-themed snacks are available.
There are packaged Iced Sugar Cookies and Rice Krispie Treats as well as Mickey Gingerbread Cookies. The in-demand Mickey Snowman Stein is also available here, and it can be filled with your choice of Frozen Hot Chocolate or Frozen Eggnog. Oooooh.
Feeling more like a salty snack? Pick up one of these adorable, refillable Pluto popcorn buckets.
The Christmas Tree Trail offers a variety of Holiday Brews, including Abita Christmas Ale, Big Storm Winter Ale, White Claw Hard Seltzer, and Schofferhofer Grapefruit Hefeweizen. Non-alcoholic options like bottled Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, and Dasani water are available, too.
There’s even a special holiday edition of the classic Mickey Pretzel! The salt on this guy is dyed red and green for an extra burst of Christmas cheer.
Remember how we mentioned that Goofy’s Candy Company is now offering several new flavors of Gourmet Cotton Candy? Three of those flavors – Gingerbread Man, Candy Cane, and Egg Nog – are available on the Christmas Tree Trail!
Christmas Tree Trail Merchandise
You might notice some adorable ornaments while wandering the Trail. Good news: many of them are available for purchase! The merchandise booth is located mid-way through the Christmas Tree Trail and offers plenty of cute, seasonal goodies, including these two warmly-dress mischief-makers.
Notice how Pluto’s sweater matches the one he’s wearing on his popcorn bucket!? So cute!
Mickey Mouse himself is all decked out for the holidays.
These socks in a Mickey bauble would be a fun gift for the people in your life who are either sock enthusiasts or haven’t been quite naughty enough to merit coal.
And the tree ornaments are so detailed! We love this version of Prince John and Sir Hiss.
Okay, we can all go home now. We’ve found the cutest ornament: Alien and Wheezy in a teacup.
The Snow Queen herself, Elsa, is delightfully sparkly.
And everyone’s favorite Little Mermaid is dressed in her holiday best.
Did you know you can meet Santa Claus himself on the Christmas Tree Trail? Well, you can! Santa meets in his very own gorgeous chalet, which is located about halfway down the trail.
Santa is very busy this time of year, though, and the wait time to see him is often between 60- 120 minutes.
The Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail
Now, are you ready to see the Christmas Tree Trail!? We visited every single tree. Let’s go!
The Disney Springs tree features a gift tag ornament from each of the 100 shops that call Disney Springs home.
Minnie and Mickey have their own new tree this year!
We love King Triton’s trident atop The Little Mermaid tree.
Pluto has his own tree this year, too, and it’s decorated with Disney pet toys!
Isn’t he just the cutest little pup!?
The Beauty and the Beast tree features the colors from Belle’s dress and Beast’s coat. Roses, books, and candles are also nestled in the branches.
Sleeping Beauty’s tree has yarn, Maleficent’s scepter, nods to the fairies, and even a spinning wheel.
On the Frozen tree, you’ll find Sven, carrots, snowflakes, and glowing ice detail.
The Princess and the Frog tree is aglow with the colors of New Orleans.
Look closely and you’ll see a pup resting beneath the 101 Dalmatians tree.
The Snow White tree is full of forest-themed details, including flowers and animals.
We thought the mirror decorations were particularly stunning!
Ah, the Disney Villains tree! Which villains can you spot? We see Ursula tentacles and lots of spell books.
The Haunted Mansion tree is new this year, and it’s one of the most dramatic trees on the entire trail.
Here’s a daylight shot. Notice the bride, Madame Leota’s headstone, and cobwebs galore? Is this haunted tree actually stretching!?
The Mulan tree is certainly getting down to business with its dragons, fans, and florals.
It’s Mushu and Crickee!
See the violin, Pinocchio’s hat, and the Blue Fairy’s wand on the Pinocchio tree!? We especially love the wand.
You can’t have a Cinderella tree without lots of pumpkins, clocks, and even a glass slipper.
So many cute circus details on the Dumbo tree!
The Star Wars tree is another new addition to the Christmas Tree Trail family this year. Porgs and droids and Jawas, oh my! We love the lightsaber tree toppers, too.
This year’s Peter Pan tree is so beautiful! We love the illuminated flight path that swirls up the tree. We also see John’s hat, Wendy’s bow, and Michael’s bear.
The fan-favorite Tangled tree is back! It features everything Rapunzel, including art supplies and a frying pan. If you look closely, you’ll even see a long braid winding through the tree.
The best part, though? The floating lanterns.
It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights! The whimsical Muppet tree showcases lots of Henson creations, including Sam Eagle, Kermit the Frog, and Miss Piggy.
We love the parrot umbrella and kite atop the Mary Poppins tree.
Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men are here to wish you an oo-de-lally holly jolly Christmas.
Check out the archery targets and bags of gold!
The Jungle Book tree definitely has more than just the bear necessities.
The Alice in Wonderland tree is home to the Mad Hatter’s hat, the White Rabbit’s pocketwatch, and plenty of freshly-painted red roses.
The pretty Fantasia tree wouldn’t be complete without brooms and buckets. The soccer’s hat is the perfect tree topper for this one!
Another new tree: Toy Story! This one’s decorated with paper chains and a color scheme that reminds us a lot of Toy Story Land.
And finally: the Walt Disney World Theme Parks tree! Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom are all represented. Yes, that’s a monorail wrapped around the tree.
We love, love, LOVE the holidays at Disney Springs, and the Christmas Tree Trail is a must-see this year!
