Christmas is a wonderful time of the year! We may live in Florida, where it doesn’t snow, but that doesn’t mean we don’t celebrate Christmas! In fact, the lack of snow makes our theme parks a bit more enjoyable! All of our Theme Parks here in Orlando have special events and happenings for the holidays, so today I thought I would share them with you!
Some are included with your park admission and/or annual pass, and others do require an additional purchase. I will point those out…
SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration takes place Nov. 21-22, 27-29, and Dec. 4-6, 11-13, 18-31. There are a bunch of festivities going on: Shamu® Christmas Miracles, O Wondrous Night, THE POLAR EXPRESS Experience, and Elmo’s Christmas Wish are just a few!
