Happy Holidays, everyone!
We were so excited to take a walk around Disney Springs and see all the holiday decorations starting to pop up, but what else is new since we last visited?
Disney Springs Food Updates
Jock Lindsey’s Holiday Bar
But we weren’t there to just look at pretty decorations. Oh no — we wanted to check out the new holiday menu items, including Milk and Cookies by the Fireside! This holiday item is $25 and comes with Coquito with Malibu Rum with Chocolate Peppermint Gingerbread Men, Spiced Sugar Christmas Tree Cookie, and Butter Pecan Signature Cookie.
YUMMY! The drink itself was very rich and the cookies were great. They even gave us a separate cup to put our coquito in so we could dip the cookies in it! We also tried many of the other new holiday items on the menu, so be sure to check out our full review here.
Starbucks at Disney Springs Marketplace
‘Tis the season that Starbucks releases its holiday drinks! And we tried a few right here at Disney Springs, including the Sleighin’ Snowman, which is a specialty drink exclusive to this location. It’s a vanilla bean Frappuccino with peppermint topped with whipped cream, sleighin’ snowman cookie, and holiday sprinkles.
It was so tasty, and we loved how the cookie soaked up all the frappuccino goodness! This drink costs $8.50.
Also, you can get a free red holiday cup with purchase (is it just us, or does the top row of the print look like Christmas tacos? 🤣!).
We also discovered a VERY cool color-changing hot cup!
Even better: this cup is only $3!
Nothing says holidays like chocolate, so we popped into Ghirardelli to see what was up. We found LOADS of great gift ideas with chocolate goodies, including ornaments, bags, and other gifts!
Goofy’s Candy Co.
The Christmas treats have arrived at Goofy’s Candy Co.! These are a lot of the same treats we’ve seen in the parks, but it’s good to know you can get them at Disney Springs, too!
The Hot Ganache with Bailey’s is back! This is a small serving which is necessary because this is a RICH treat.
Disney Springs Merchandise Updates
World of Disney
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the shops, and World of Disney is no exception. There are LOADS of holiday items now, but we didn’t see anything we hadn’t seen previously here or at the parks. We love the holiday displays, though!
If you’re needing some holiday bath and body goodies, Basin has you covered. We really like these Santa bath bombs! They’re $8.99 each.
There are also some new seasonal Body Butters. These are 3 for $22 or $11.99 each. The scents are Let It Snow, Christmas Cookie, and Candy Cane.
The holiday pins have arrived! We’ve seen a lot of these at Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort, but now they’re here at Disney Springs, too!
We saw some super fun Holiday Groot Magnets for $14.99 each. It’s just all about Groot this holiday season, huh?
Disney Springs Security Updates
Disney Springs now has a security check like the parks! After passing through a temperature screening, guests now also go through a security screening.
This process is in place at both Disney Springs garages.
Disney Springs Christmas Updates
Christmas Tree Stroll
We love seeing all the amazing trees that Disney Springs puts out every year, but this year is a little different. Instead of having all the trees consolidated in one area, they’re spread out to encourage social distancing. So this year, it’s a Christmas Tree Stroll! Check out this Toy Story tree!
There’s even a map to show you where all the trees are! It’s more of a scavenger hunt with stickers to mark where you find each tree.
And if you complete the stroll, you get a button!
We saved the best for last — the holiday decorations are up at Disney Springs!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And we can’t wait to go back and revisit Disney Springs again to see what other new things pop up!
