Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs

When: December 2017
Where: Disney Springs, Florida
What: Christmas Tree Trail

We went to Disney Springs in Orlando, Florida to see the Christmas Tree Trail.  There approximately 20 character themed trees.   We went on the weekend so it was VERY crowded.  Fortunately, Disney Springs has two large parking garages so you usually can find parking. We had a wonderful time, definitely worth a visit.

I have a pics of my favorite trees here and I have a video of all the trees here:

Christmas Tree Trail


This is the first tree, one with tags as ornaments.  It has logos for all the different stores here at Disney Springs.

This is the first character themed tree.  Mickey & Minnie Mouse, it is really cute!  It is decorated with red and white polka dots on bows and other bows and some mickey ornaments.

Next is Cinderella, this is a really pretty tree.  It has pumpkins, carriages and swans.

This one is for Dumbo, one of my favorite characters.  It is very colorful and ornaments for things you might see at a circus.

Last one, here is the Jungle Book.  This isn’t really for once character but the story.  It has bananas, other fruits and jungle plants.

In addition to all the beautiful trees you can also see Santa at Santa’s Chalet.   As you can see from the sign, there was quite a wait to see Santa.

Mount Dora at Christmas

  • Where: Mount Dora, Florida
  • When: December 9, 2017
  • What : Christmas Time

We went to Mount Dora to see the Christmas lights.  We usually go at least once a year during the holiday season.  It is really something to see.  The whole downtown area is done up in lights.

We love to window shop, Mount Dora has a nice selection of stores and restaurants.  There are a couple of bakery / ice cream / bakery stores, a pet store, books stores, antiques, clothing and lots of crafts.  Next time we go I want to try the “Let’s Do Maine Lobster Roll’, it looks good!

This the the Children’s Christmas at Mount Dora night and there were lots of activities for kids.

Overall it is a great time.  A few words of caution, finding parking can be difficult and there is limited places to use a restroom.  The stores will not let you use there restrooms, even if you are a paying customer.  At least that was my experience.   I have gone to Mount Dora on few occasions when it is really crowded and it can be a real hassle.  I recommend going at slower times.
