For the past two years I’ve been able to enjoy SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration in Florida. It is an absolutely spectacular event, where carols fill the air, a sparkling sea of trees light up the water and skaters dance on ice. In a unique wintery, watery wonderland, you can journey to the North Pole on THE POLAR EXPRESS Experience, meet Santa in a chilly Arctic, share a smile with a sea lion, and enjoy stunning live holiday shows inspired by the natural world and Christmas. With everything from elves to Elmo, and from Santa to Shamu, SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration is where the season meets the sea.
You can see my experiences here:
This year, though, I couldn’t fit this event in! We’ve been too busy buzzing around many other holiday events, along with running from my lives at a Zombie 5K! But my loss is your gain, since SeaWorld is letting me give-away a family 4-pack to a lucky winner! This is what I’ll miss and you’ll get to enjoy:
O Wondrous Night: Hear the the greatest story never told, with more than 30 carols, based upon the Christmas Story and told through the eyes of a variety of live animals. Everyone will be entertained by this touching, light-hearted and glorious celebration featuring a host of angels, animals and the true glory of Christmas. And new this year, guests will have the opportunity to take photos with some of the stars from the show!
Winter Wonderland on Ice: This ice skating extravaganza will bring Christmas to life through towering water fountains, magnificent fireworks and some of the most talented ice skaters in the world.
Shamu Christmas Miracles: SeaWorld invites guests to experience the grace and beauty of our Shamu family at Shamu Stadium, during this night-time show. Thrilling seasonal music rings out as whales soar through the air in a performance that will take the audience on a stirring voyage into the heart of the holidays.
Clyde and Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas: I just love Clyde and Seamore, and their seasonal show is a hoot! As Santa’s helpers, Clyde and Seamore bring their own brand of comedy to Christmas this year. Our loveable sea lions, along with a few mischievous otters, a comical elf, and a wintery walrus or two, search for Santa.
A Sesame Street Christmas: This festive and fun musical celebration will have the little ones smiling all the way home. Through dance, laughter, and interactive sing-a-longs, Elmo, Telly Monster and the rest of Abby Cadabby’s Sesame Street friends teach her what Christmas means to them.
Holiday Reflections: A Fireworks and Fountains Finale, with soaring fountains, dazzling lights, and festive fireworks, choreographed to joyous holiday musical favorites. Experience a wondrous SeaWorld Christmas connection that lights the night.
All Aboard! At the park’s Wild Arctic attraction, guests embark on a heart-warming journey to the North Pole aboard THE POLAR EXPRESS Experience, based on the film from Warner Bros. Pictures and Shangri-La Entertainment, inspired by the beloved Caldecott Medal children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg. Discover the sights, sounds, and smells of the season as family and friends are immersed in the dazzling wonder of this beloved holiday classic. Upon arrival at the North Pole, guests can meet Santa Claus himself, and encounter astounding animals in a wintery wonderland.
Sea of Trees: More than 100 massive trees, each sparkling, lighted and choreographed to classic holiday tunes, making a dramatic display around SeaWorld’s center lake.
Santa’s Fireside Feast: I did this last year with my family and LOVED IT! Enjoy a delicious dinner of Christmas favorites with Santa and Mrs. Claus during Santa’s Fireside Feast, a charming, warm-hearted holiday experience. Meet Santa himself, and listen to a classic holiday poem told onstage as never before to create Christmas memories that will last a lifetime. This sumptuous, all-you-can-eat seasonal meal takes place weekends of SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration. Reservations are required, and include reserved seating at select holiday shows.
The Christmas Market: Located on the park’s Bayside Pathway, featuring unique artisans and culinary delights. At this festive, bustling market, guests can find one-of-a-kind gifts and dine on scrumptious holiday delights.
Guests may want to take advantage of a new option, Show Express. It will provide guests with reserved seating at all of SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration’s shows, plus front-of-the-line access to THE POLAR EXPRESS Experience, All-Day Dining Deal and a complimentary holiday photo.
