Get ready to share the magic of the holidays with your favorite aquatic creatures.
The SeaWorld Christmas Celebration is back for this holiday season.
From November 11 through December 31, 2022, SeaWorld Orlando invites you to celebrate the most wonderful time of year. The theme park will become a winter wonderland, with over 3 million twinkling lights bedazzling your favorite attractions. Get into the holiday spirit with festive food, seasonal music, and thrilling rides.
Here’s what to expect at SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration this year.
Satisfy Your Seasonal Cravings at SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration
SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration features a food and drink menu that feeds the Christmas spirit.
Enjoy cozy cuisine like fresh-popped kettle corn. SeaWorld’s hot cocoa is perfect for those rare, cold Orlando nights. In the mood for something savory? SeaWorld offers scrumptious options like short-rib macaroni and cheese and loaded french fries.
In previous years, the park has sold Tasting and Brew Sampling Lanyards, which offered great discounts on seasonal beers and holiday treats.
Holiday Meet and Greets
Bring the whole family to SeaWorld Orlando’s Sesame Street Land.
You’ll meet Elmo, Grover, Rosita, and other beloved characters. They’ll take the stage to teach you all about holiday celebrations like Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. You can also catch your favorite Sesame Street friends in a dazzling Christmas parade. Expect festive floats and lots of merry music.
St. Nick and his trusty reindeer will also join in on the Christmas Celebration fun.
Head to the Wild Arctic to take a picture with Santa. Tell him what gifts you want to see under your tree, then head to ChristmasTown. There, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and friends will light the way to a great holiday.
Snow Time and Show Time
Prepare to be amazed by all the shows at the SeaWorld Christmas Celebration. Walk a snowy path around a lit-up sea of trees. Then enjoy the marvelous Winter Wonderland on Ice skating show, which truly captures the spirit of the season.
It’s a Wonderful Night is another must-see. This lively holiday show beautifully recounts the story of the first Christmas. Live animals, puppets, and dancing carolers create a magical and musical Nativity scene.
For an extra fee, guests can get in on the fun by gliding across an ice rink at Bayside Stadium.
On select nights, the Nautilus Theater will welcome big names in music for the Sounds of the Season Performance Series. In 2021, SeaWorld’s holiday lineup included pop singers Darlene Love and Tiffany and José Feliciano of “Feliz Navidad” fame.
In addition to this jolly Christmas entertainment, enjoy SeaWorld’s year-round shows, like Orca Encounter at Shamu Stadium.
Cheers to a New Year
SeaWorld Orlando will go all out to ring in the new year. On December 31, celebrate New Year’s Eve with a spectacular firework display set to vibrant music. In the hours leading up to the big moment, enjoy festive entertainment around the park.
