The 2021 Christmas Tree Stroll

The Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs quickly became a favorite activity for many Walt Disney World Guests. A pathway was lined with themed trees, holiday music played, and there was even “snow”. Santa greeted kids at the end. It was magical, but it also wasn’t conducive to social distancing. In 2020, the Christmas Tree Trail was replaced by the Christmas Tree Stroll. The new version has returned this holiday season.

The full name is Disney Springs Christmas Tree Stroll Presented by AdventHealth. It is open to anyone, and it is free to play. You will pick up a map and then search for the themed trees. When you find a tree, take the corresponding sticker and place it on that spot on the map. When you’re done, return with the map for your prize. Since it’s free to play the prize is just a button, but it’s nice to have. Keep the map, because there are special offers for some Disney Springs businesses on the back.

Even if you don’t feel like participating in the actual stroll, take a trip to Disney Springs. It is dressed up for the holidays and holiday music plays throughout. The trees that are part of the Christmas Tree Stroll are amazing this year! You’ll find returning favorites such as Haunted Mansion, as well as some brand new designs like Moana. There is meaning behind each ornament and each garland. The Disney Parks Tree features all four icons, and special touches such as the Disney Skyliner. There are golden bows to symbolize The World’s Most Magical Celebration.

Santa will return to Disney Springs on November 12, which is the official start of the holidays at Walt Disney World. There will be extra entertainment, nightly “snow” flurries, a DJ, and much more. There will also be extra seasonal treats. Parking at Disney Springs is free, and you don’t need a Theme Park ticket. There are plenty of reasons why you need to include Disney Springs in your holiday plans!

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
