Last year, I had the chance to stop by Disney Springs during the holiday season. It was simply a truly magical experience. Between the decorations, Christmas trees, shopping, and eating, it was definitely a memorable day. It was also the perfect way to create new traditions with my family as there was something for everyone to do.
The secret is out. Disney Springs has the most complete collection of Disney-inspired products anywhere! Because of that, it’s where I’ll be starting my holiday shopping this year. From the awesome collections at the LEGO store or Star Wars Outpost, to the perfect plush toys at World of Disney – with over 50,000 items, it’s the world’s largest assortment of Disney merchandise. Family and friends will love one-of-a-kind gifts from Sugarboo & Co., and jewelry from PANDORA is always a hit. For the fashionistas in your life, UNIQLO and Francesca’s delight without breaking the bank. (And I think we can all agree that these fantastic finds are sure to have earned you a cupcake from Sprinkles, right?)
While holiday shopping is certainly more magical here at Disney Springs, it’s just one of the many reasons I’ll be visiting. I want to introduce you to some of my seasonal “must-dos”:
- A Bigger, Better Disney Springs’ Christmas Tree Trail: Last year Disney introduced custom decorated holiday trees to the Marketplace, each themed to a popular Disney story or character. This year, I’m thrilled to share that the Christmas Tree Trail will expand to twenty-five trees – many of them larger than last year’s evergreens – including ten new trees inspired by Disney classics such as Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, Snow White and Dumbo.
- Stitch’s Holiday Gift Hunt: The mischievous experiment 626 is at it again with an expanded scavenger hunt featuring four new stops, including a special stop at the more-magical-than-ever Disney Springs’ Christmas Tree Trail. A great activity for families with older kids, it’s your chance to work together, decipher clues, and discover all the spots where Stich is hiding. Complete the mission and receive a limited-edition button.
- Meet & Greet with the Coca-Cola Polar Bear: The iconic bear symbol of the holidays comes to life with an eight-foot tall version, available for meet and greets on the second floor of The Coca-Cola Store. I’m a long-time fan of the brand ambassador and have been fortunate enough to meet him here in Atlanta. I can’t wait for my kids to meet him at the most magical place in the world!
- La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil: After nearly twenty years, “La Nouba” will take its final bow on December 31, 2017. There’s nothing else quite like the gravity-defying, jaw-dropping thrill of this stunning 90-minute show. Limited tickets available; visit www.cirquedusoleil.com/la-nouba for additional information and to purchase.
Complimentary and adjacent self-parking keeps things simple and hassle-free. With the retail delivery service available at all Disney Springs stores, I won’t have to add anything else my overloaded stroller, making it easier for me to pop in to one of the award-winning restaurants to relax and refuel. Stop by The Polite Pig or Blaze Pizza for a quick bite or any of Disney Springs’ signature restaurants – featuring everything from steak and seafood to home-style favorites – for a more substantial sit-down meal.
