SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration

SeaWorld Orlando turns into a sparkling wonderland with the addition of over 3 million twinkling lights strung specially for the holidays. Your little elves can meet Santa as well as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and his pals, to share family fun and holiday traditions for a 2018 yuletide season to remember forever. Plus, you'll all enjoy festive dining, shopping and exciting live shows. Experience these events on select nights, now through December 31, 2018, included in your park admission.

Rudolph's ChristmasTown

Christmas cheer begins with Rudolph's ChristmasTown where you can meet Rudolph, Clarice, Cornelius, Bumble and Yukon from the classic family Christmas television special, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Meet Santa

Along with meeting the beloved reindeer, the family can take a trip to the Arctic and Santa's Base Camp & Gifts to meet Santa himself (and purchase all your Christmas needs). Your little ones can share their dreams and wishes with Santa Claus in a very special holiday adventure. And, of course, with the meet-and-greets, your family can pose for photographs with these cherished characters.

The Christmas Market and Meals

Enjoy festive merrymaking and culinary delights along the Bayside Pathway at the Christmas Market. You'll encounter playful elves, a delightful model train village, and the comedy shenanigans of the Christmas Council. Let the family unwind in the glow of the fire pit with a wonderful view of the Sea of Trees—a dazzling display of over 100 beautifully lit trees that seem to float on water and sparkle to holiday classics—and sing along to the sounds of the season performed live on the Gazebo Stage. You will also find one-of-a-kind gifts (and souvenirs) and nibble on holiday treats like freshly popped kettle corn, waffle cone S'mores and a unique Chef's-special apple crisp (yum!). For larger appetites, sit down and relax at one of SeaWorld's many cafés, grills or restaurants and enjoy a delicious meal that will refuel your family for more fun and excitement.

Signature Shows

Spectacular animal shows are what SeaWorld is best known for. Let the holiday spirit splash over you with the "greatest story never told" that includes dramatic Christmas carols, life-size puppets and killer whales in Shamu Christmas Miracle. What screams Christmas more than escapades on ice? The glittering Winter Wonderland on Ice where you'll enjoy show-stopping choreography to holiday classics. Join the Sesame Street gang, including Cookie Monster, Grover, Zoe and Rosita for Elmo's Christmas Wish. Indulge in the unforgettable O Wonderous Night, where a live nativity show at Nautilus Theater brings the story of Christmas to life through the eyes of magnificent animals. Last but not least, don't miss the beloved sea lions, Clyde And Seamore, in their heartwarming Countdown To Christmas show. Will the walrus and mischievous otters make an appearance? You'll have to go Sea for yourselves.
