Disney Springs Christmas Tree Stroll to Add Anniversary Trees
It’s going to be a holly jolly holiday celebration over at Disney Springs later this fall. Starting in mid-November, guests will experience a winter wonderland when they visit the shopping, entertainment and dining district, especially at the Christmas Tree Stroll.
Like much of the Walt Disney Resort, the annual Christmas Tree Stroll will receive enhancements that celebrate the resort’s 50th anniversary celebration. The festivities for “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” begin October 1st with new experiences encompassing all four theme parks and, of coursre, Disney Springs.
The dozen incredibly decorated trees often feature Disney themes, including park icons like the Monorail and animated classics, including “The Jungle Book.”
In previous years, Disney Springs presented the Christmas Tree Trail, which clustered the trees near Once Upon a Toy. However, due to the pandemic, the rebranded Christmas Tree Stroll now spreads the wonderous trees throughout Disney Springs.
Jock Lindsey’s Holiday Transformation
One of my personal favorite Disney Springs stops also gets a transformation this holiday season. Themed after a 1940s airplane hangar, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar gets rebranded to Jock Lindsey’s Holiday Bar beginning Nov. 12th.
The former home of Indiana Jones’ pilot and sidekick, this treasure trove of artifacts becomes even more of an adventure decked out in its holiday best. Guests can be sure that the menu will also present some unique and festive delights as well.
That Magical Florida Snow
No snow ranks quite as high on my list of favorite things as Disney snow. The effervescent “flakes” add such a bit of holiday whimsy to shopping in Town Center. Area favorites, including Coach, Pandora and Vera Bradley, certainly offer a wide array of gifts for everyone.
Disney Parks Blog gifted us an incredible preview today of some of the unique merchandise coming to Disney Springs as well as the Walt Disney World resort for this year’s holiday festivities. Ears, ornaments, apparel, and of course, a new Loungefly mini-backpack top the list so far.
