The holidays at Disney Springs are filled with fun activities, entertainment, and sweet treats…but my favorite holiday experience is the Christmas Tree Trail!
Open from 11 am until 11pm until January 5th, the Christmas Tree Trail gets you in the yuletide spirit as you explore a winter wonderland where snow falls and holiday tunes fill the air.
Make your way through a winding path lined with 23 beautifully decorated Christmas trees inspired by some of your Disney favorites including:
- Walt Disney World Theme Parks
- Mickey & Minnie Mouse
- Beauty & the Beast
- Sleeping Beauty
- The Princess & The Frog
- The Little Mermaid
- Haunted Mansion
- Snow White
- Toy Story
- Disney Villains
- Robin Hood
- Star Wars
- Peter Pan
- The Lion King
- Mary Poppins
In addition to the trees, you can visit Santa’s Chalet to meet the big guy himself to let him know what’s on your wish list.
You will need to visit the kiosk at the front of the trail, near Earl of Sandwich, or near Santa’s Chalet to get a return time as there is no standard queue.
To be in the queue you will need to give a Cast Member a cell phone number, and the system will send you two text messages – one to say you are in the virtual queue & one when it is your time to go to Santa’s Chalet for your visit.
Do note that once you arrive at the Chalet, all of your party needs to be present and you will still have a 30 minute wait to see Santa.
My best tip for avoiding a long wait is to arrive at the Christmas Tree Trail about fifteen minutes early to sign up for your virtual spot in the queue.
