The holiday season has kicked off at Walt Disney World and the Christmas Tree Stroll has returned to Disney Springs. Guests can wander the resort’s dining and shopping district to find 20 different decorated Christmas trees themed to different Disney favorites.
During our first trip around Disney Springs for the Christmas Tree Stroll, three of the 20 trees were not yet out on display. Those trees have since been added and we got a look at them.
Interestingly, rather than a tree, the Disney Wish has a festive topiary in place for the holiday season.
Guests entering from the Orange Garage are greeted by this unique “tree.”
And finally, with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever now in theaters, a Black Panther tree can also be found along the stroll.
Guests can kick off their Christmas Tree Stroll experience by stopping at one of five different locations to pick up their map.
The maps give the locations of the 20 trees throughout Disney Springs and provide stickers for guests to place in their respective spaces.
Once the stickers are all in place, guests can take the completed map back to one of the distribution locations for a special surprise. The maps can also be used for discounts and deals at various locations around Disney Springs.
Guests will find 20 different trees (once they’re all up that is) around Disney Springs. The two biggest are located in the Town Center and Marketplace and are decorated with more classic holiday ornaments and garland.
The remaining trees (aside from one other, likely located outside the Orange garage) feature various disney themed decorations.
There are a few trees that are new this year. Disney’s Encanto is part of the holiday celebration this year, with a colorful tree and nods to the various members of the Madrigal family.
Guardians of the Galaxy
With Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind opening in EPCOT earlier this year, the Marvel team gets to celebrate the holidays at Disney Springs with their own tree. The Awesome Mix Tape can be found in a cassette player and Groot and Star-Lord’s mask can be found near the top.
The Princess and the Frog
The Lion King
The Haunted Mansion
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Mickey and Minnie Mouse
Walt Disney World Annual Passholders
Another one of the new trees is dedicated to the Disney Wish, the latest addition to the Disney Cruise Line. Unfortunately, three trees were not ready today and will be put up soon. The Black Panther tree was also missing from its location.
