I love Christmas at Disney. I talk about it a lot, from Epcot to Magic Kingdom, Disney has so much to do during the holidays. One of our favorite holiday traditions is to take the family over to Disney Springs for the day. We check out all the free activities, grab some of our favorite snacks, and watch some pretty cool performances. Christmas at Disney Springs is spectacular and here is what we love so much about it.
Christmas at Disney Springs – What to do, see, and eat!
Christmas Tree Trail
22 Christmas trees decorated as some of your favorite Disney movies, snow falling all around you, festive snacks and holiday music! The Christmas tree trail is so cool! From Nov 8 – Jan 5, from 11am-11 pm every day you can see these beautiful trees.
Stitch’s Holiday Gift Hunt
This is a scavenger hunt that takes you all around Disney Springs. You start off by picking up a book (see locations below) and follow the clues to find Stitch. You match the corresponding sticker and once your book is all filled out you can turn it in for a prize. The girls had so much fun with this one.
Meet Santa at Santa’s Chalet
make sure to get there early and follow these steps to secure your spot. We got to Disney Springs around lunch and spots were already taken for the day (until 11pm).
Here is what to do:
- Head to the podium in front of the Christmas Tree trail to secure your spot.
- Leave your phone number and the cast member will text you when its your time to come and visit Santa.
- You will have 10 minutes to come and check-in.
Student choirs and dancers will be performing all season at the Dock stage and there will be kid-themed DJ dance parties each night at the fountain by Once Upon a Toy. There will also be a nightly tree lighting at the tree right there.
Christmas Shopping at Disney Springs
We love picking out a new ornament each year and Disney Springs is the perfect place to do just that. Visit the Days of Christmas shop to find the perfect ornament for your tree.
If you are looking for the perfect gift or some holiday merch then check out the World of Disney. This place is huge and has every Disney item you could think of.
If you are looking for delicious food, Disney Springs does not disappoint. For the festive treats be sure to look for two cute spots right inside the Christmas Tree Trail. Noelle Kringles Cafe and the Eggnoggery.
