Disney Springs’ Christmas Tree Trail has been a cute little addition to this year’s holiday season. Tucked in the back of the Marketplace section, the trail is rather simple but also charming. It is a wide path of asphalt flanked on both sides with Christmas tree displays, and each tree is adorned to represent a different Disney animated classic. It is a treat for Disney fans to see the creative ideas brought to the boughs as representation of our cherished films from childhood.
MICKEY AND MINNIE TREE
Adorned with bows, polka dots and the classic Mickey head ornaments, this tree is a perfect and natural choice for the tree trail.
LILO AND STITCH TREE
Mele Kalikimaka indeed! Small wooden cut-outs of Stitch, himself, and Elvis albums hang alongside surfboards and palm branches on this tropical tree.
THE LITTLE MERMAID TREE
It wasn’t actually “under the sea,” but it might as well have been with all of the sea weed that was used as garland for this beauty. Dinglehoppers a plenty and other little tributes like Scuttle’s binoculars dress this one up right.
PRINCESS AND THE FROG TREE
Not surprisingly, the colors of Mardi Gras set the tone for this tree that is bedecked with jazz instruments and a few frogs that are cute enough to kiss.
It might be cold outside, but this tree invites you to actually celebrate that with all of its ice skates and snowflakes. Our personal favorite touch, though, is the bunch of carrots nestled in the branches right underneath a reindeer ornament. Sven, we love you!
101 DALMATIONS TREE
You can’t help but see spots at this particular corner of the tree trail. Dog collars, dog dishes and little spotted fur coats among the accents of red really make this piece of timber pop.
THE MUPPETS TREE
It’s almost as much fun as the characters, themselves. Film cans, movie stars and small modes of transportation that “move you right along” hold down these branches while ornaments painted like our favorite Muppet faces bring giggles to this spot.
ALICE IN WONDERLAND TREE
The creativity got cranked a notch for this tree. Flowers with faces, pocket watches and tea cups are spaced throughout the branches, but front and center is a disappearing Cheshire Cat grin and googly eyes, and topping it all is the Mad Hatter’s famous headwear. Yes!
It’s hard to not have your heart get “tangled” up in this clever tree that pays homage to one of the most romantic Disney tales. An endless braid acts as garland and a unifying element among lanterns and small chameleons.
It’s all about dainty fans and Asian ornaments here, but it is the colorful dragon with flowing tail that is the bow on this Mulan package.
THE JUNGLE BOOK TREE
It’s bananas–literally. Well, it’s coconuts and other tropical fruits as well. Also, don’t forget to look for Kaa’s slithering body wrapped in and out of the branches for a particularly amusing touch on this tree.
MARY POPPINS TREE
Possibly the most charming tree on the trail is the Mary Poppins tree. Parasols, carousel horses, birds, chimney brushes, and spoons ready to be filled with sugar hang throughout. However, the literal topper in this case is the parrot head on the end of an umbrella handle that sits above all else.
Set in various romantic shades of blue, the Cinderella tree has a number of classic elements that make it a beauty. Doves, carriages, and clocks set at midnight tell the story of this tree. Most of all, though, we love the emphasis of a diamond engagement ring set against the lovely princess’ name.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST TREE
Stark and vivid red roses contrast beautifully against the evergreen boughs. Clocks reminding us about this “tale as old as time” and a few small candelabras also add to its appeal. It is the stained-glass ornaments that depict the enchanted castle staff that made us fall in love with this one though.
DISNEY VILLAINS TREE
Here we have not one film celebrated but almost the entire collection of evil from every Disney animated movie. Spell books, mirrors, potion bottles, and poisoned apples catch the eye. However, we were won over by the antlers on top, representing Gaston. As a specimen, this little number is intimidating.
Now you’ve gotten a glimpse of what Disney Springs is treating guests to over the holiday season. Which tree trimming job is your favorite? Let us know in the comments below.
