For several years now, Disney Springs has been home to the Christmas Tree Trail, an area in the Marketplace starting at Earl of Sandwich and going behind many buildings near where the old bus loop used to be. My family has gone every year and loved the experience — artificial snow, festive music, beautifully decorated themed trees. One thing we did not love was how crowded it was in there. When we went last year, it was a 20 minute line to get in, and then you shuffled along with a mass of people to catch a glimpse of trees as you made your way through the winding path. Needless to say, that kind of crowd wasn’t going to work in the new reality of 2020’s social distancing necessity. Rather than cancel the event altogether, Disney changed it from a Christmas Tree Trail, going along a single location, to the Christmas Tree Stroll. Trees are spread out all around Disney Springs.
A map shows the locations of all the trees with stickers so you can identify which tree you find at each location. Maps are free and can be obtained at locations around Disney Springs including House of Blues, Art of Disney, Welcome Center, and Marketplace Co-Op. Once you’ve completed the map, return to those locations for a special free gift.
We’re not going to tell you where all the trees are — what’s the fun in that! — but we will show you pictures of the trees that you’ll see, for people who may not be able to make it down this year to participate on their own.
And here’s the final award that you get after completing the stroll.
