The Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail 2018

The Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs 2018

Disney Springs Marketplace Christmas Tree Trail

Located in Disney Springs Marketplace, the 2018 Christmas Tree Trail is a must see! The trail is open 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily until January 6th, but it really best seen from dusk to close. Each tree is decorated for a movie, ride or general Disney theme. The trail, as well as Disney Springs, can get very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, but I don’t think that should scare you away. I visited on a very busy Saturday night and I was still able to enjoy the trail, get pictures of the trees without people in them and really take in the decorations on each tree.

Before you even enter the trail there is a large beautiful tree right outside the Earl of Sandwich.

Mickey and Minnie have a tree dedicated just to them. They did just celebrate their 90th birthday, so I think they have earned this tree!

The Princess and the Frog tree is one I could see having in my own home. The theme is very subtle and the flower decorations are beautiful.

The Haunted Mansion tree is one of the most ornate trees on the trail. There is no questioning the theme, and it is nice to see a tree dedicated to an attraction!

Around this time I thought the trail was almost done, but I was very wrong. I was only about 1/3 of the way through the trail! Next is Pinocchio, with his trademark hat and growing nose.

The 101 Dalmatians Christmas tree is decorated in Kanine Krunchies and a lovely red gloved hand protrudes from the top

Robin Hood is very under represented in the parks, so it was fun to see a tree themed to the much forgotten movie.

The Tangled tree is almost as beautiful as the Rapunzel tower bathroom in the Magic Kingdom.

Of course there is a frying pan…

Teacups, clock and cards adorn the Alice in Wonderland tree.

The Angel Kitty atop the Toy Story tree is purrfect, and you can find the same alien ornaments on the tree that are seen in Hollywood Studios.

The final tree of the trail is themed to Walt Disney World Resort as a whole. With nods to all 4 parks and working monorails, this is my favorite tree!

The extras

Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail also has a Santa meet and greet near the middle. There is often a very long wait to visit Santa, but Disney Springs has this covered. Check in at the beginning of the trail and you will be texted when it is your turn to meet the Jolly old elf!

The trail also includes a snack stop and shopping area. Many of the ornaments featured in the trees can be found at the small shop. I also spent a lot of time checking out the extra decorations along the fence on the trail. These are clever advertisements themed to the trees.

And then of course there is the snow! Every couple of minutes it snows in several sections of the trail. This makes the trees even more magical and enjoyable!

Disney Springs did a great job this year and the Christmas Tree Trail is not to be missed during the Christmas season!
