Disney announced today the Christmas Season will officially kick off at Disney Springs with sparkling holiday decor, unique gift giving, special seasonal treats and holiday entertainment beginning November 10th.
Disney’s downtown shopping district will once again be big on family fun with more than 150 locations to explore. There will also be strolling carolers, living statues, stilt walks and so much more. Here are just a few of the highlights that you’ll want to be sure not to miss.
An Even Bigger Christmas Tree Trail – Back to dazzle us for another year, guests can take time out from their shopping to stroll along a bigger and better Christmas Tree Trail featuring 25 Disney-themed holiday trees. The highlight of this year’s trail will be the 10 new treas inspired by classics like Peter Pan, Snow White, Dumbo and Sleeping Beauty.
Santa’s Chalet – You don’t have to hit the theme parks to meet Santa. He will be accepting Christmas wish lists and meeting guests at his relocated chalet next to the Christmas Tree Trail. You’ll find him there from November 10 – 24th. Lines for this offering can get really long but Santa’s little helpers do hand out buzzers so you can continue with your Christmas shopping until he is ready to meet you.

This fun-filled holiday scavenger hunt will feature 16 stops including the Christmas Tree Trail. See if you can help Stitch track down his holiday gifts in this special seasonal mission.
