Disney Springs Virtual Holiday Gift Guide
Looking for the perfect gift for everyone on your list? Then, look know further than the Disney Springs Holiday Gift Guide that is now available on Instagram (@disneysprings). While there, you can use the highlight buttons to explore eight different gift categories including “For Her,” “For Kids,” and “For the Disney Fan.”
All items on the guide can be found at Disney Springs but it also gives you a sampling of the variety of gifts available to knock everyone off your list. And, make sure to check back in throughout the holiday season because there is always something new to discover this holiday season!
Christmas Tree Stroll
Back again for another holiday season is the iconic Disney Springs Christmas Tree Stroll! The Stroll features elaborately decorated Disney-themed Christmas Trees. Like previous years, each tree represents a popular Disney character, attraction, or story. New for 2020, the trees are dispersed throughout all four Disney Springs neighborhoods so there is more magic everywhere you look!
If your visit to Disney Springs this holiday season is a quick one, make sure to at least check out the tree in the heart of Town Center. The clip above features a video of Cast Members hard at work as they get the holiday magic ready for all Guests!
