SeaWorld Orlando’s Christmas Celebration


Disney and Universal have a lot to offer around the holidays, but so does SeaWorld Orlando.  They boast having over three million twinkling lights scattered throughout their park for the holidays.  With offers as good as we already laid out here, it’s a great time to visit SeaWorld Orlando’s Christmas Celebration.

Some of the offerings included with your park admission are:

A Sesame Street Christmas parade featuring favorites such as Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, and more which is sure to be a hit with children.

Elmo’s Christmas Wish showing at the Seaport Theatre that includes singing and dancing with Elmo and friends.

The Sesame Street area is also decorated for the holidays.  Guests can also have Breakfast with their favorite Sesame Street Characters – which is on sale for Black Friday for $23.09 for adults and $11.89 for children (ages 3-9).

The Sea of Trees which a stunning display of lighted trees in SeaWorld’s center lagoon.  I have seen this display in previous years, and when it is set to holiday music it is a glittering and festive celebration.


Winter Wonderland on Ice is a show with ice skaters entertaining park guests in an enjoyable ice skating show with the Sea of Trees as a glowing backdrop.  This is said to be a very entertaining show for all to enjoy. 

Also at Bayside Stadium, guests can reserve a time for Public Ice Skating for the whole family.  You are required to wear crew socks and gloves to skate, but they are available for purchase should you forget them.  No personal ice skates are allowed into the park.

Skating costs an additional $15 per person and can be reserved on the SeaWorld Website.

SeaWorld Orlando is hosting a number of live performances called Sounds of the Season including Steven Curtis Chapman on November 27th and 28th at 3pm and 6pm, Britt Nicole on November 19th at 7pm and November 20th at 3pm and 6pm, and O-town Motown on November 21st at 3pm and 6pm. Other names for the Performance Series have not been announced yet.  Keep an eye out for new announcements on performers on SeaWorld’s website.

Guests can meet Santa at Wild Arctic and Rudolph in Rudolph’s ChristmasTown.  Guests can also purchase a Dinner with Santa which is currently on sale for Black Friday for $27.30 for adults and $9.80 for kids.

Guests will be treated to a nightly holiday show including lights and fireworks.

SeaWorld Orlando will also celebrate Hanukkah (November 28- December 6), Kwanzaa (December 26 – January 1st), and Three Kings Day (January 6th) to be inclusive of other holidays.

As far as the food and beverages for the holiday season, SeaWorld has truly stepped it up in their offerings. Including 20 eateries with various holiday treats from Chocolate dipped items, Hot Toddies, cheesecakes, cookies, Mac and cheese bowls, and other holiday delights.  Guests can purchase a Christmas Celebration Food and Brew Sampler for 10 Samples $50 and 5 Samples $35.

As you can see, there is a lot going on this holiday season at SeaWorld Orlando and with their Black Friday pricing right now, its worth the time and money to check out the Christmas Celebration.
