We love going to Disney and Disney Springs during the holidays because there is nothing like it. I remember as a kid, going to Disney when they used to have that extravagant lights display and walking around thinking this is what they mean when they say Disney magic. Well, fast forward a whole lot of years and now I get to experience that Disney holiday magic with my kids. They no longer have that lights display but we do whatever we can to show them the holiday’s at Disney.
Since the pandemic, Disney Springs has opted to change the way they did their Christmas tree display and now have it spread throughout Disney Springs and it becomes a sort of scavenger hunt. We didn’t get to do it last year when they first made the change to the Christmas tree stroll but, we did go this year! Now that Giovanni and Gracelyn are older, this time of year becomes more fun. This year all three of them got to have their own paper and do their own stickers as we came upon each tree.
To start, you can head to the following places to grab your tree map.
They are also where you can turn it into after you all done for a special surprise gift! The kids loved going through the entire springs area and finding their favorite characters on a tree and then stopping into a shop for a special holiday bite to eat or going shopping. Daddy ended up leaving with an early Christmas gift this way, sneaky little thing he is.
Each Christmas tree is uniquely decorated to fit the theme of the Disney character, movie, ride, or even their platforms/channels (like Disney+ and Disney Junior). Above is the Cinderella tree which was my favorite. Gracelyn loved the Moana tree, of course, which you can see her looking at with Adylee above and Giovanni was obsessed with the Toy Story tree.
It was fun for the whole family and we got to create a new memory with the Christmas tree stroll. If you’re in the Orlando area and you are looking to do something that not only gives you that Disney holiday magic but also is a way for your family to get together and create memories than look no further. I think this is something we will do every single year!
There isn’t just the Christmas Tree Stroll either! You can take a photo with Santa, enjoy holiday treats at different shops and also it snows in the Town Center! Everything is listed on their site.
