What I love most about Disney Springs is shopping! If you are struggling with ideas for gifts, be sure to check out the Disney Springs Gift Guide on Instagram.

It includes eight different gift categories for everyone on your list. With all of the stores in Disney Springs, it should not be hard to find something for just about everyone.

This year, the Christmas Tree Trail has been reimagined into the Christmas Tree Stroll. To read more about the Christmas Tree Trail, take a look at Donna’s post from last year.

It features twelve holiday themed trees, and this year guests can participate in a fun scavenger hunt. At the end of the scavenger hunt, turn in the map for a fun surprise!

The scavenger hunt is free and you can pick up a map from select retail stores, the Disney Springs Welcome Center, and Disney’s PhotoPass Studio.

More Holiday Entertainment and Santa

Everyone loves seeing the Toy Soldiers at the Magic Kingdom, but there is nothing quite like seeing the Toy Soldier stiltwalkers at Disney Springs. Look out for the Snowflake Skaters at the promenade and maybe even some snow falling down on you at night.

You will also want to keep an eye out for Santa and Mrs. Claus! The holidays are not complete without them. You might see Santa waving from his pontoon boat. Make sure you stop and wave hello!
