Christmas Tree Trail

Stitch’s Holiday Gift Hunt

(11am-11pm daily, until 5th January 2020)

A great activity for the kids, Stitch’s Holiday Gift Hunt will get them searching around Disney Springs for the items from Stitch’s lost gift list! A booklet, including map and stickers are available to pick up at various locations here, including Amorette’s Patisserie, Once Upon A Toy, Rainforest Cafe and Super Hero Headquarters, just to name a few. Follow the clues on the map to find 12 hidden gifts for Stitch, which can then be marked in the booklet with a sticker. Once all lost gifts have been located, the kids can collect a festive surprise!

HOLIDAY HINT - Spend a little more time gazing at the Mickey & Minnie tree. It just may contain the clue you’re looking for.

Meet Santa Claus at Santa’s Chalet

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to the man in the red suit! Santa has set up a chalet this year at Disney Springs to meet with all children, to find out what they want for Christmas. Located near the Christmas Tree Trail, this is a magical opportunity for the kids to meet and have a photo with Santa Claus. Professional photos are also available.

HINT - There’s no need to pre-book online. Guests can leave their phone number with one of the elves at the chalet and they will text when it’s your time to visit.
