Looking for something spectacular to do this holiday sea son? Head to SeaWorld Orlando for their Christmas Celebration. There are so many holiday experiences to enjoy around the park and each one will put you in the holiday spirit (and keep you there through New Year's). Here’s a look at some of their holiday highlights:
Ride THE POLAR EXPRESS experience to the North Pole where you can see Santa himself. You can spend time with Beluga whales and sip hot chocolate, too. It’s magical in every way. Put on your seatbelt as it will be a bumpy ride.
From the North Pole, head south and visit their newest attraction, Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin®! This fantastic new adventure will take you through the Antarctic so you can explore the penguins’ icy world above and below the water. This is extremely cool in every way.
Check out their sparkling Sea of Trees, where over one hundred lighted Christmas trees are synched to music and light up the night. Shows begin at 6 p.m. Then, be sure to watch the ice skaters perform live in Winter Wonderland on Ice. This is truly a spectacular show you won’t want to miss. In addition to amazingly talented skaters, you can witness fireworks and dancing water. It will leave you cheering.
Shamu® Christmas Miracles is another must-see. This is a night-time event where the whales swim, soar and dance to holiday music. They’ll have you leaping with joy.
O Wondrous Night is the 'greatest story never told’ and is the story of Christmas from Bethlehem with live animals, jaw-dropping talented singers, and a story that will touch your heart. This could be your favorite experience of the entire holiday season. You have got to see this and be prepared for lots of goose bumps.
With all this excitement and holiday fun, it’s hard to believe that they’ve added even more, but SeaWorld did. New this year is Elmo's Christmas Wish where your child can help Elmo find his Christmas wish with the help of Sesame Street friends like Rosita, Grover, Zoe and Cookie Monster.
Have dinner with Santa and Mrs. Claus in Santa’s Fireside Feast which takes place on the weekends of SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration. You’ll not get a delicious feast of holiday favorites, you’ll get an exclusive meet and greet with the jolly man himself, Santa. Reservations are required, make them online at SeaWorldOrlando.com. A free family photo is also included.
SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration takes place through December 31, 2013 and is included with park admission or your annual pass. For more info, visit them online at SeaWorldOrlando.com. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too, hashtag #SeaWorldChristmas.
Have a blessed time.
