Holidays in Orlando
Orlando (with Walt Disney World®) is already known as the happiest place on earth. We know the parks are amazing and the weather can’t be beat, but when you add in the magic and joy of the holiday season, the excitement and wonder reaches an even higher level. SeaWorld® brings out the lights in their Christmas Celebration. Universal Studios™ puts on their humbug with Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter™. LEGOLAND® hosts Happy Holidays at LEGOLAND®. And Walt Disney World® puts out all the stops for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Dining and shopping are also particularly notable during this time of the year.

SeaWorld puts on a Christmas Celebration. Special shopping, foods, and live shows treat the holiday guest. At SeaWorld things are “inspired by the natural world.”
Music is everywhere, and coupled with the 3 million plus lights provides an immersive sense of the holidays. The shows for the season are spectacular, but the entertainment isn’t all on a stage at SeaWorld. You see famous Christmas characters, ice skaters dancing on ice, yes even here in sunny, warm Florida. There is even a special Christmas Market to shop and stroll around. Experience SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration for an all new experience unlike any you have had at SeaWorld before.
Universal Studios is the home of all things Harry Potter. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™’s Diagon Alley™ and Hogsmeade™ take on a whole new look with the festive decorations and unique Harry Potter atmosphere for a beautiful, other-worldly feel. The lighted up Hogwart’s Castle is almost unbelievable to behold. Music, shows, entertainment, food, and decorations all help spread an amazing level of holiday cheer and excitement.
Don’t forget Universal’s Dr. Seuss tribute with the holiday classic The Grinch™ in the Grinchmas™ Who-liday Spectacular.
Be sure to catch the holiday parade!
The entire Universal Orlando™ resort undergoes a transformation for Holidays at Universal.
