Disney Springs offers a array of festive activities during the holidays from November 10th to January 7th 2018. Come and feel the magic by taking the Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail , a wonderful and alluring pathway with 25 festive trees and 10 new firs all decorated for Christmas and each inspired by a Disney theme or character! You will find this wonderful trail at the start of the Once Upon a Toy Marketplace, another magical activity filled with photo opportunities.

Get your own booklet and solve ingenious clues left by the mischievous Stitch to help him recover his gifts! Visit all the 16 participating locations and solve the clues! Once your booklet is completed you and your kids can head to the redemption center to collect your Christmas reward!!

Aside from activities, Disney Springs will be filled with Christmas decorations, a wonderful atmosphere and even the traditional Santa Chalet where your kids can meet Santa until December 24th and have their picture taken for a memorable Christmas time.

Disney World Just Got More Fun With New Wine Slushies!!

New Wine Slushies from Disney Spring

Who said Disney World was only fun for children?! A recent announcement by the Disney’s restaurant Amorette’s Patisserie located in Disney Springs is going to make your trip to Disney World a whole lot more fun!! Disney’s restaurant is now serving strawberry wine slushies!

It is a fact that Florida’s sun can be very difficult to endure during hot clear days and if you add the humid heat to the crowds that you have to maneuver through during the day, you’d certainly feel like a chilled refreshing drink and a glass of wine would help sooth your day! Well, Disney is known as the place where wishes come true and they take it seriously. Disney has indeed heard the wishes of thousands of mom’s (and all legal adults) visiting the parks every day and has decided to make it a bit more fun for them too.

The slushies are more of a wine cocktail than just chilled wine as you will be able to get a strawberry wine slushie (with red wine) or a mango slushie (with white wine)! These refreshing and tasty drink will lighten your day before you start queuing for a popular attraction. Each slushie costs $8, which isn’t so bad when you’re roasting under the sun!

This is obviously an adult-only drink to be consumed within reason!!
