Let's start with something new this year, the Christmas Tree Trail. The trail will feature fifteen decorated trees, each inspired by a different Disney character or story. As you walk through a wintery wonderland, you'll find toy soldiers, singers, and even falling snow. The themes for the trees include:
- Mickey and Minnie
- Beauty and the Beast
- The Little Mermaid
- The Princess and the Frog
- Alice in Wonderland
- The Jungle Book
- 101 Dalmatian
- Mary Poppins
- The Muppets
And there's even more Christmas Tree fun. Every night at 6 PM, a family of the day will light the Marketplace tree in a special ceremony. Afterward, look for life-sized toys, toy soldiers on stilts, and Christmas treats.
Are you on the Nice list, or the Naughty list? Well, hopefully you've been good, for goodness sake, because Santa Claus is Coming to town, or at least to the special Santa's Chalet. Guests can visit with the jolly, old elf and have their photo taken by a Disney PhotoPass photographer. And like last year, you can pick up a pager while waiting for your turn in the queue.
If you like scavenger hunts, there's Stitch's Holiday Gift Hunt. After completing a search through the four neighborhoods of Disney Springs,visit a participating location for a limited-edition completer button.
And here's a sneak peek of some special Magic coming to Disney Springs as part of a new nighttime show. Wishing upon a star will become even more magical.
Most of the festivities begin on November 11, with the exception of Stitch's Holiday Gift Hunt, which begins on Black Friday, November 25. Santa's Chalet closes on Christmas Eve, but everything else runs through January 8.
