Not all of the holiday celebrations are happening in the actual parks at Disney World this year!
You can find some tasty treats, decorations, festive merchandise, and fun activities in Disney Springs too. And, that’s where we’re headed today because a fan-favorite activity has officially returned for the holiday season!
The Christmas Tree Stroll is BACK at Disney Springs, bringing SEVEN new trees this year! Note that this year’s stroll is similar to last year’s, where the trees are distributed throughout Disney Springs instead of being all together in one area, so you’ll explore the entire shopping and dining district on your hunt.
Along with some old favorites, there are new trees for Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas, Black Panther, Raya and The Last Dragon, and more.
To participate in the stroll, you’ll first want to pick up the Christmas Tree Stroll map, which has a list of all the trees and where to find them. You can get this complimentary map from City Works Eatery & Pour House, Planet Hollywood, Under Armour, Amorette’s Patisserie, The BOATHOUSE, and Basin.
Once you’ve got your map in hand, it’s time to get strolling!
If you’re entering Disney Springs from the bus stop, the first tree you’ll spot is the huge Chandelier Tree. It’s got gorgeous lights hanging from the branches and a big gold garland hanging around it.
Under the covered shopping pavilion, you’ll see a Coco-themed tree that’s been strung with marigolds.
The tree also has images from the ofrendas (or Day of the Dead family altars) that you’ll see in this movie.
Nearby, there’s a tree dedicated to Disney+, which has ribbons hanging from the top that are covered in holiday movies.
Back outside, you can find trees dedicated to Disney princess movies like Moana…
…Beauty and the Beast…
…and Princess and the Frog. This tree has big Mardi Gras vibes, and we are here 👏 for👏 it👏 .
We also spotted a Frozen tree — but not the kind that you might be thinking! It was covered in themed decorations like ice skates, carrot snowmen noses, and reindeer.
One of the new trees is the Raya and the Last Dragon tree, which has silhouettes of dragons…
…and an awesome sword sticking out the top.
Other Disney movies that have their own themed trees include Toy Story…
…and The Lion King.
Plus, one of the newer trees we found today is for all the Marvel fans out there — it’s a Black Panther tree!
It has scenes from the movie decorating the branches…
…and a huge glittering panther coming out the side. The lights around the panther are even glowing purple too.
There was a tree dedicated to the icons themselves, Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
And we saw one for the little ones to enjoy — a Disney Jr. Tree!
One of our favorite trees also returned — the Haunted Mansion-themed tree.
This one has awesome details like the frightening bride…
…and the floating candelabra from the attraction.
We also saw the Disney Parks tree, which got a special EARidescent 50th Anniversary makeover for the occasion.
The gold top and pastel colors make this tree a perfect match for the other 50th decor around the parks.
These trees (and more!) are waiting for you in Disney Springs so be sure to stop by and check it out when you’re visiting. If you complete the entire Christmas Tree Stroll you’ll even get a FREE pin as a prize (though these weren’t available just yet when we visited). And, keep following AllEars for more updates on the holiday season in Disney World!
