The Disney Springs Christmas Tree Stroll has returned with a new “Wish” tree, an updated Disney Cruise Line display for the Disney Treasure, a new Disney Vacation Club tree, and an updated Annual Passholder tree. The themed trees can be found all throughout Disney Springs, and guests who complete a Tree Stroll map get a celebratory button at the end.
Disney Springs Christmas Tree Stroll Map & Button
Signs at the Disney Springs entrances have information about the Christmas Tree Stroll and the Santa Claus meet and greet.
Guests can pick up their complimentary Tree Stroll map and sticker sheet from City Works Eatery & Pour House, Crystal Arts by Arribas Brothers, Joffrey’s Coffee and Tea Company, The LEGO Store, or Planet Hollywood. The prize buttons are also available at these locations.
The map is part of a folded pamphlet.
There is a sticker sheet of small circular stickers featuring different characters, logos, and symbols.
On the map, the 19 trees are marked with circular tree symbols. When you find a tree, put the correct corresponding sticker over the tree symbol.
The map also advertises Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, which has holiday offerings.
Upon completion, guests get this button, which is the Disney Springs Christmas Tree Stroll logo with the year.
Haunted Mansion Tree
There is a sign at each tree showing the correct sticker, in case you aren’t familiar with every Disney IP. The signs also include a QR code that takes you to a list of holiday offerings at Disney Springs.
The same trees and decorations are recycled most years. The Haunted Mansion tree is a returning favorite, featuring various elements of the classic ride, like the “floating” candelabra, ghostly bride, and Madame Leota gravestone.
The trees use a combination of retro/vintage ornaments, Disney ornaments, and custom pieces.
Annual Passholder Tree
The Annual Passholder tree previously had red and yellow streamers, large versions of the Mickey and Minnie Annual Passholder magnets, a Mickey tree-topper, and a mini Monorail around it.
The tree is now topped with a glowing yellow star featuring Mickey’s face in the Disney “D.”
The rest of the tree is covered in a wider variety of ornaments than before, including some inspired by Mickey balloons.
There are framed works of art that resemble photos of families enjoying Walt Disney World.
This new tree celebrate’s Disney’s upcoming film “Wish,” which will be in theaters on November 22.
The tree features floral elements.
There’s a spellbook with hands reaching out to grab it.
There is a set of beakers and cylinders full of colorful liquid.
“Wish” tells the origin story of the wishing star featured in several stories and Disney films.
The film is set in the kingdom of Rosas, ruled by King Magnifico. There are purple banners featuring a golden “M” on the tree.
The star on top is the Star character from “Wish.”
The tree also displays woodland creatures.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” Tree
The Guardians of the Galaxy tree has star ornaments and shiny baubles that look like planets.
Young Groot is on the tree, growing out of his pot.
There are also casette tapes.

It looks like Isabela has been here as a rainbow of flowers wrap around the “Encanto” tree.

“Toy Story” Tree
The “Toy Story” tree did not yet have a sign when we visited on Friday, November 10.

Disney Treasure Topiary
Lastly, the Disney Cruise Line “tree” has returned after debuting last year. While it previously represented the Disney Wish, this year it represents the Disney Treasure.
The base has the golden wordmark of the Disney Treasure, but otherwise, the topiary cruise ship is almost identical to last year’s.
There are now tiny garlands wrapped around elements of the ship, like the stern and the supports of the AquaMouse.
There are also small pieces of holly on the filigree on the base.
