If you are an Orlando local, or planning a trip with the family, there is no better time to visit the Orlando area theme parks than during the holiday season. Sea World, Universal Studios and Walt Disney World are all being decorated for the season and have many great events taking place from Thanksgiving through New Years. Here’s a brief overview:
SeaWorld Orlando’s Christmas Celebration runs from November 25 – December 31 and includes live shows like Shamu Christmas Miracles, a decorated Christmas village and visits from the characters of Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer. For more details on SeaWorld’s holiday happenings, CLICK HERE.
Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure
Beginning on December 3-January 1, Seuss Landing at Islands of Adventure transforms into Grinchmas. Catch a live showing of the Grinch Who Stole Christmas and listen to the carolers of Whoville. The New York City tradition of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade comes to the streets of Universal Studios from December 3 – January 1. Check out the floats, the marching bands and all the excitement that we see on TV every Thanksgiving, here every evening throughout the holiday season in Orlando.
Walt Disney World
If you’re an annual Disney pass holder or planning a trip to Disney World, the holidays will make your visit extra magical. If you aren’t planning a trip to the parks, you can always visit Santa and walk through the Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs. But, rather than rewriting all the great features at the Disney Parks available this holiday season, I’ll defer to the work already done by Disney Tourist Blog. This article gives you a full scope of all the Christmas time Disney magic your family will need.
