January Events in Orlando 2020
January is an exciting month in Central Florida. It’s the start of our “really cold” season and we Floridians are here for it. Sweaters, boots, scarves, beanies…over our bathing suits, of course. It also kicks off year-round fun with new events and attractions around the area and at our world-class theme parks. Here are a few things you can enjoy while on your January vacation.
Rock the Universe: Florida’s Biggest Christian Music Festival
For two nights, experience powerful music from today’s most popular Christian artists. Performers include TobyMac, Chris Tomlin, newsboys, and Switchfoot. There are two main stages and more live music in the FanZone presented by Coca-Cola including electronic dance music. Rock the Universe is a separately ticketed event but you can enjoy all the attractions at Universal Studios while you’re there. It’s a weekend of faith and music. January 24 and 25. Visit their website for details.
Jurassic World Live Tour at the Amway Center
The dinosaurs from Jurassic World are stomping their way off the screen and into Orlando’s Amway Center with Jurassic World Live Tour. Experience the excitement of being face-to-face with life-sized dinosaurs, including the spectacular Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Velociraptor Blue (why is she Blue and not Bravo?) and many of your other reptilian favorites. Enjoy dino-mite action, special effects and physical stunts that are sure to delight even the Saur-pusses in your herd. January 17 – 20.
Scottish Highland Games
The Central Florida Scottish Highland Games offer more than just strong-man sports. Enjoy Celtic music, food and drink, clothing, crafts, and musical instruments as well as ancient Scottish athleticism, sheep herding, vendors, archery, axe throwing, clan tents, bagpipes, medieval camp, highland cows, and a partridge in a pear tree. No, not really. There are no partridges in Florida. Head to their website for details.
Solar Bears at Amway
Love ice hockey? Chill out at an Orlando Solar Bears game as they take on the Greenville Swamp Rabbits on January 25 at 7 PM. Honestly, is there such thing as a Swamp Rabbit? Well, I just Googled it and yes, there is. My bad.
Once the new year has been sufficiently rung in and it’s time to rest, head back to your luxury vacation villa. Shower 2019 off and climb into your comfortable bed for a night (or morning in this case) of deep sleep. Wake up refreshed in 2020 with a cup of hot coffee you made in your fully equipped gourmet kitchen and relax, poolside, in comfort and privacy…only to spend another day of your fantastic Orlando holiday vacation exactly the way you want—making memories with your loved ones. Happy New Year!
The magnificent Grace Potter will, pardon the pun, grace the House of Blues at Disney Springs on January 10. Grab a drink, enjoy some chicken fingers and treat yourself to some seriously great live music! Doors open at 7 PM.
Country music superstar Jason Aldean closes out the first month of 2020 with a show at the Amway Arena on January 31. Morgan Wallen and Riley Green will open up before Jason comes steppin’ out and “burnin’ it down.”
And when your day is done, head to your home away from home luxury vacation villa. It’s so nice to know, while you are out enjoying bonding moments in and around Orlando with your family, that you’ve got privacy and comfort awaiting you. Fix yourself a cocktail or a cup of hot cocoa and sit outside in your private backyard under inky black Florida skies and make your plan for tomorrow’s adventures.
