Perfect for a Christmas Card snapshot to show your loved ones back home. Go Seawolves! December 22, 2018.
Snow in Celebration
Christmas in Orlando is celebrated in a typically traditional style at Celebration Town. This charming town’s main event, which thrills (and chills!) everyone, is the Nightly Snowfall. Soap snow, better known as “Snoap” is blasted out of the street lanterns high into the sky before fluttering back down, landing gently on Market Street. For children who have never seen snow, it’s a truly magical experience. You can have a lovely dinner and shop for gifts and souvenirs here, as well. Nightly Snowfalls are at 6, 7, 8 and 9 PM, now through December 31.
Lights on Jeater Bend
This event is an all-singing-and-dancing street-wide Christmas light display that you and your family should not miss. The Lights on Jeater Bend in Celebration, features homes lit in perfect synchronization to the beats of music, giving you an awesome 360 degree dose of Christmas sparkle. Enjoy snippets of classic holiday films displayed on a large screen and falling snow flurries. And, who better to meet during this charming holiday event than the characters from Frozen? Delight your kids as they get their photographs taken with none other than Anna, Elsa and Olaf! Runs now through January 1, 2019.
