Guests will be able to join friends and family at SeaWorld Orlando on select dates from November 10 through January 2 for a memorable holiday experience. Visitors will see the theme park transformed into a winter wonderland sparkling with more than three million beautiful lights and the addition of NEW holiday experiences sprinkled around the event.

The main feature of the magical festival is the Sea of Trees – a guest favorite. The wintery, watery wonderland is back immersing guests in a sea of twinkling holiday trees that sparkle to music as they light up the water. Dazzling images come to life on more than 100 trees, including a giant glistening centerpiece that towers 70 feet above the water.

During the celebration, guests will also be able to indulge in delicious ALL-NEW holiday treats, experience fabulous holiday shows and entertainment, and enjoy outdoor ice skating at Bayside Stadium!

There are even more ways for families to get into the holiday spirit this year at SeaWorld Orlando. Step into the enchanting world of “Mrs. Claus’ Magic Kitchen,” an ALL-NEW delightful live show that promises to add a dash of laughter and a sprinkle of sweetness to your festive celebrations. In this jolly good time, Mrs. Claus, the beloved matriarch of the North Pole, takes center stage as she trades in her cozy Christmas sweater for a chef’s apron, inviting guests on a whimsical culinary journey.

Get ready for an entertaining blend of holiday magic and culinary chaos as Mrs. Claus attempts to master the art of social media while whipping up her famous Christmas cookie recipes. From classic sugar cookies to elaborate gingerbread masterpieces, she’ll be spilling the North Pole’s sweetest secrets, all while trying to keep up with the latest social trends.

New this year, in the heart of Wild Arctic Plaza is the Christmas Market! Guests will discover a winter wonderland brimming with delectable culinary delights, unique merchandise, and the festive melodies of live music. It’s the perfect place to shop, savor, and celebrate the holiday spirit.

Returning this year is the fan favorite “Holiday Reflections: Fireworks Finale,” to end each night of the Christmas Celebration. This firework spectacular features dazzling lights choreographed to joyous holiday musical favorites. Guests can also immerse themselves in the story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer at Rudolph’s Christmas Town. Stroll past life-size story book vignettes featuring the classic tale and meet beloved characters including Rudolph, Bumble and Santa for photo opportunities. Guests can also dine with Santa throughout the Christmas Celebration for an additional cost.

The magical holiday fun continues in Sesame Street Land with the return of the popular Sesame Street Christmas Parade, where guests can see all their favorite Sesame Street characters getting into the holiday spirit. For an additional cost, families who come to the park on Saturday mornings can have breakfast with their friends from Sesame Street. Elmo’s Christmas Wish is also back this year on event mornings at Seaport Theater. Visitors can join Cookie Monster, Grover, Zoe and Rosita as they work together to help Elmo find his Christmas wish!

SeaWorld Orlando is now home to the only outdoor ice rink in Central Florida where guests can lace up and hit the ice. During the day, park guests will have the opportunity to ice skate at Bayside Stadium. Once night falls, they can sit back and relax as the pros show off what they got with “Winter Wonderland on Ice”. Christmas comes to life on a stage of ice, jewels, and lights as skaters dazzle and delight in this show-stopping, ice skating extravaganza. A sea of sparkling trees and towering fountains dancing in the background come together to create an experience the entire family will not want to miss.
