While all of Disney Springs is decorated with seasonal garland and lights, the Christmas Tree Trail is a unique, immersive experience that provides guests with holiday cheer year after year. The Christmas Tree Trail illuminated the Marketplace area of Disney Springs daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., featuring holiday music, falling snow, and festive trees themed to various Disney characters.

Food and beverage kiosks and merchandise stands can also be found throughout the Christmas Tree Trail, making the attraction an immersive holiday experience of festive sights and bites.


The Christmas Tree Trail is just one of the many holiday offerings available this season at Disney Springs. The shopping and entertainment district at Walt Disney World Resort features numerous holiday attractions, food menus, and activities this season. Guests can meet Santa Claus at Santa’s Chalet, just outside the entrance to the Christmas Tree Trail, from November 8 through December 24 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. PhotoPass services will be available to take pictures of you and your loved ones at this holiday meet and greet location.
