The Jungle Book Christmas Tree

Kaa the Snake has wrapped himself around the tree, and there are bananas, and other tropical fruit dotted about. Tropical foliage and grasses are interspersed between the branches, there are plaques with handprints and footprints on them, and some of the baubles have animal paw prints.

The simple wooden sign says The Jungle Book, and a gold Mickey Ears ornament sits inside the lantern.

The Muppets Christmas Tree

Another fun and vibrant tree! A big red bow sits at the top, with strings of pearls draping over it – no doubt belonging to Miss Piggy! You can see her eyes and snout at the very top of the tree. Similarly, you can see the faces of Gonzo, Kermit, and Fozzie Bear too.

I loved The Muppets when I was a kid and loved this tree! I loved the nod to Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem – with the musical notes, Animal’s drum kit, Zoot’s saxophone, Janice’s guitar, and even Dr. Teeth’s top hat!

There were giant fairy light bulbs, colourful baubles, and tinsel, and inside the lantern was a silver Mickey Ears ornament. The Muppets’ sign was pink and green stripes.

We’re nearly there – just a few more trees to go!

Mulan Christmas Tree

The Mulan Christmas tree was topped with a bunch of cherry blossoms, and paintings of the blossom were on the red wooden sign. The tree is scattered with hand fans, dragons, and gold ornaments.





Inside the lantern was a Mulan themed handbag ornament, and on closer inspection of the baubles, some are covered in tiny beads and are really pretty.

Mary Poppins Christmas Tree

I really loved Mary Poppins’ tree, there were so many references to the film!

Mary’s parrot handle umbrella pokes out of the top of the tree, and Michael and Jane’s patched up kite hangs near the top too. There is a merry-go-round, and a suffragette sash draped across the branches.

Chimney sweep brushes that almost look like black flowers stick out of the branches and speaking of the chimney sweeps, there are silhouette decorations of them stepping in time! I love the Edwardian penguins, dressed up for carol singing, and you might just spot a spoonful of sugar towards the bottom of the tree.

A Mary Poppins handbag ornament is inside the lantern, and the wooden sign is edged in blue. I do wish they had, had her tape measure wrapped around the tree – that would have been practically perfect in every way.

Alice in Wonderland Christmas Tree

We’re at the final tree of the Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail! This one had an Alice in Wonderland theme and was another full of movie references.

The Mad Hatter’s hat is at the top, surrounded by toadstools. You can see the Cheshire Cat’s eyes and big grin beaming from inside the tree, and there are lots of the playing card guards nestled around the tree too.

But it doesn’t stop there, the White Rabbit’s pocket watch and chain dangle down, and paintbrushes dipped in red paint, has painted some of the white roses red. There are also teapots, cups, and saucers dotted about, and lots of keys too. I would love to have seen some flamingos, hedgehogs, and drink me/eat me decorations!

A pastel harlequin design is on the Alice in Wonderland sign, and an Alice handbag (with Cheshire Cat tail handle) is the lantern ornament for this final tree.

There are a couple more final trees. The first one decorated with wooden toys, red bows, and traditional baubles. and was placed near the exit.

And this tree was just outside the exit of the trail. The sign says “All the ornaments featured on this holiday tree can be found right around the Corner at Disney’s Days of Christmas”

I think I already mentioned in this trip report somewhere that I couldn’t find a single Mickey Ears 2017 ornament, and that I was so sad because I have one from every trip we’ve had to Walt Disney World. But then I saw the Sorcerer Mickey on this Christmas Tree and hope was not lost! I raced round to the Christmas store, and asked if they had any…. they did not. I nearly begged them to take the one from the tree!

In the end, I bought a personalised Mickey Ears ornament with Christmas 2017 written on it. I also spotted a Sully ornament that had 2017 on it, so I bought that too.

And I really wanted this ornament too, I love the style of it, but couldn’t find it anywhere.

Do you see The Red Head ornament in the background?

After seeing all of the wonderful trees on the Christmas Tree Trail, we naturally had to pop into the store and buy some decorations! I LOVE Disney ornaments and have quite the collection now. They are pricey – usually around $15-$25 minimum, so I invariably end up spending a bit too much because I need. Them. ALL!

I bought these three – the Chip ‘n’ Dale one I showed a moment ago up there; the Mickey Ears Snowman, which I’ve had my eye on for years, and finally bought; and the Silver Magic Kingdom/WDW Key. I also purchased a few others, which I mentioned earlier too.

I did not buy these three. Apparently, Christmas pickles are a thing! The Pumpkin Coach is so cute, and I may buy that on a future trip, and I adore the jewelled Mickey ornament, so ditto on that.
