Are you wondering if you should visit the Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail this year?
Disney Springs is a favorite spot for the ThemeParkHipster team to hang out. And during the holidays the shopping, dining, and entertainment district of Walt Disney World gets a magical makeover with glittering lights, beautiful garlands, tasty treats, and the sounds of Christmas carols ringing in the air.
One super special event that goes on at Disney Springs during the holidays is the Christmas Tree Trail. In years past the trail was located on the Marketplace side of Disney Springs with an entrance near Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
But due to the pandemic the 2020 version the Christmas Tree Trail is going to look a little bit different than years past.
Here’s everything you need to know about enjoying the Disney Springs Christmas Trees Trail.

Where can I see the Christmas Tree Trail?
This year, the Christmas Tree Trail is more like a Christmas tree scavenger hunt with trees scattered across Disney Springs. There will likely be a tree spotting map included in the regular Disney Springs guide maps, or as a separate map, so be sure to snag one up to know where the best trees are.

When does the Christmas Tree Trail start?
The Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail officially begins November 6 and goes through December 30. Guests can search for trees from opening to close of Disney Springs.
What types of trees are there to see?
The best part about the Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail is that the actual trees are so over-the-top with decorations. Many of the trees are decorated with ornaments and garlands to reflect Disney movies like Mulan, Frozen, and Mary Poppins.
Other trees represent favorite Disney attractions like The Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean.
How can I bring some of the Christmas Tree Trail home with me?
Each of the trees along the Christmas Tree Trail will have ornaments that can be purchased from various stores around Disney Springs.
These ornaments often have some sort of indicator that they can be bought and where to find them.
If for some reason a store is out of a particular ornament ask a Cast Member to search other Disney locations to see if it’s available anywhere else on property.
They will be able to tell if that ornament is in stock at a theme park, a resort, or somewhere else at Disney Springs.
ThemeParkHipster Tips for exploring the Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail
- Try to find a guide map! This will help you find the best trees that people rave about all season long like the Haunted Mansion tree and the Star Wars tree.
- Stop to take a break at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar. During the holiday season the Disney bar gets a festive twist with drinks and snacks to match the merry season.
- Don’t try to do it all in one day. There’s so much to do at Disney Springs that it can be challenging to see everything, including the Christmas Tree Trail, in one day. If you must visit Disney Springs in on day, try getting there early and visiting on a weekday for the least amount of crowds.
