Should we call it the 5th gate (theme park) of Walt Disney World? What are we talking about? Disney Springs of course! Just like the theme parks Disney Springs has decked the halls for the holidays with lots of great things to see! No park ticket needed! Let’s check out the holiday happens over at Disney Springs.

Hi Santa!  

Christmas isn’t complete without a photo-op with Santa! The big question is whether it will be smiling faces or the year for tears! You know the picture, we all have one when Santa was the scariest guy around. Stranger danger! Tucked away in his “Christmas Tree” cottage is the jolliest elf around! Stop by, grab a picture, and make sure to share your Christmas wishes (how’d you like a nice footfall, Ralphie?)!

Stitch Needs Your Help!

After making his great escape from the Magic Kingdom, Stitch has found a new home over at Disney Springs! Just one problem, he misplaced some of his belonging in the move. Can you help? Join Stitch on his on his Holiday Gift Hunt. Search through 12 different locations for Stitch and his lost presents. Similar to the scavenger hunt over at Epcot’s World Showcase, pick up your map and stickers at 6 different locations to lend Stitch a hand. Find all his lost items and earn a Christmas surprise!

Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail - Minnie Tree

Head Out on the Trail!

Not all trees are the same! At least not on the Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail.  Pick up a cup of hot cocoa at Ghirardelli and take a stroll down the Christmas Tree Trail listening to festive music, and checking out 27 themed Christmas trees featuring your favorite characters and rides. With a little Disney magic you may even see snow! We will definitely need a warm hug! Heading into its third year, the Christmas Tree Trail continues to expand and grow!

Passholder Insights:  Mid-week tends to be a little quieter than the weekends, as many local Floridians head over to Disney Springs for the holiday cheer.

Last Years Drone Show at Disney Springs

Nighttime Show?!

Unknown at the moment is whether or not Disney is bringing back the Disney Springs Christmas drone show. Last year Disney Springs had its own nighttime spectacular in the form of a drone show over the lagoon. The show would run every night and feature drones choreographed to holiday music creating iconic holiday images. It was a sight to be seen! Hopefully it will be making an appearance again this holiday season for us to enjoy ourselves!

Disney Springs is a surprise hit for the holiday season, from the Christmas Tree Trail to the joyful entertainment spread around the waterside promenade it certainly is jolly! We will see you out on the holiday trail!
