Holiday Events at SeaWorld® & Legoland®


Our world-class theme parks make the Orlando area one of the most visited places in the world all year long. But during the holiday season, the parks get into the spirit of things with decor and entertainment that really puts the star on top of your tree. We’ve covered the festivities at Walt Disney World’s four parks, and while they are all spectacular, SeaWorld and LEGOLAND offer their own unique brand of holiday cheer as well. I’ve included beautiful Bok Towers here as well because it’s located not too far from LEGOLAND and it is a truly beautiful spot to experience the holidays in Central Florida. Enjoy whimsical family fun this holiday season on your Orlando area vacation and make it a celebration to remember forever.

SeaWorld Orlando

Experience SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration, which sees the park transform into a winter wonderland glittering with excitement, holiday spirit, and more than 3 million glowing lights. Watch the all-new Sesame Street Christmas Parade and enjoy seasonal shows like O’ Wondrous Night and Winter Wonderland on Ice as well as Shamu Christmas Miracles and Clyde and Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas. You can also rub noses with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and friends, and head to Wild Arctic for a visit with Santa! SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration runs from November 23–December 31 and is included with park admission.


Holidays at LEGOLAND Florida offers a combination of seasonal shows, special treats, twinkling lights and other fun, family-focused ways to celebrate. In addition to their 30-foot LEGO Christmas tree, you’ll see a life-sized LEGO Santa complete with reindeer and a sleigh, plus life-sized LEGO snowmen, a giant LEGO wreath, and holiday decorations that serve as spectacular backdrops for your holiday photos.

Watch as your kids participate in LEGOLAND’s two interactive shows: Holly Jolly Jubilee–a musical journey inside Santa’s workshop where they’ll sing, dance, and clap along with Santa’s elves, and then, you and your loved ones can rock around the iconic 30-foot-high LEGO Christmas Tree complete with interactive lights, music, and snow (which by now you know we Floridians love so much)! Holidays at LEGOLAND Florida is included with park admission and runs from November 29 – December 31.
