Disney Springs Holiday Events

November 6 – December 30th, 2020

At Disney Springs you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the holiday season. Window shopping takes on a whole new meaning as you enjoy the wonderful holiday displays celebrating traditions from different cultures.

It’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays at the Disney PhotoPass Studio at Disney Springs! Starting November 16, get all your family photos for the holidays, including a virtual backdrop featuring Santa, and other festive virtual backdrops that combine the magic of the holidays with the magic of Disney! To download all the photos taken the day of your visit (including your photos from the studio from that day), take advantage of a special offer of $49.99 for Memory Maker One Day*, in addition to great prices and specials on prints, available only at this location November 16 through December 26, 2020. Put on your ugly (or not-so-ugly) Christmas sweater, and jingle all the way to the studio – no reservations required. 

*Subject to terms and conditions. Restrictions apply.

The 2020 Christmas Tree Stroll

The Disney Springs Christmas Tree Stroll presented by AdventHealth invites guests to gaze with wonder at elaborately decorated, Disney-trimmed trees as they explore the shopping, dining and entertainment district.

Santa’s Winter Watercade

In late November, Santa and Mrs. Claus will pack their winter wear as they plan to soak up the last bit of Florida sun before their big night. Keep an eye out this season on the waters of Lake Buena Vista where you might spot them waving and sending season’s greetings from afar in a festive and colorfully-decorated pontoon boat. 


Outdoor DJs play holiday music at the AdventHealth Waterside Stage and at Exposition Park across from Disney’s Candy Cauldron during the day to get guests in the spirt of the season.

In the evening, stilt-walking toy soldiers, skating snowflakes and a snowfall (intermittently at Town Center and West Side) add a touch of magic for holiday shoppers.
