SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration at SeaWorld OrlandoWe recently attended SeaWorld Orlando’s Christmas Celebration and enjoyed the beautifully decorated park and fun Christmas-themed attractions. My favorite part of SeaWorld at Christmas is the Sea of Trees – a lake full of Christmas trees that make for a wonderful view at night. My kids enjoy O Wondrous Night, a live show retelling the story of Christmas with songs, puppets, and even live animals.

SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration O Wondrous Night Show

There’s a lot more to see at SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration – here’s what you can find:

  • O Wondrous Night: This show features more than 30 carols, angels, and live animals. New this year, you can take photos with some of the animal stars from the show.
  • Winter Wonderland on Ice: a Christmas-themed ice skating show with towering water fountains and fireworks
  • Shamu Christmas…Miracles: A night-time show with seasonal music accompanying the whales.
  • Clyde and Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas: Clyde and Seamore, famous sea lions, plus otters, an elf, and a walrus or two, search for Santa.
  • A Sesame Street Christmas: Great for toddlers and preschoolers, this show features Elmo, Telly Monster, Abby Cadabby, and more Sesame Street friends. Kids will love the singing and are sure to laugh along.
  • Holiday Reflections: A choreographed light and firework show set to holiday music.
  • THE POLAR EXPRESS Experience: Based on the film, this is a fun attraction that takes you through a bit of the story. You can also meet Santa Claus and see polar animals in this exhibit.
  • Sea of Trees: My favorite, this display features more than 100 trees on a lake, each sparkling, lighted and choreographed to holiday music.
  • Santa’s Fireside Feast: Not included with park admission, this add-on let’s you enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet-style Christmas dinner. The kids will love seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus! Reservations are required for dinner and include reserved seating at select holiday shows.

I’m torn between the Sea of Trees and O Wondrous Night. The Sea of Trees sounds very pretty but I love Christmas carols. Then again I’m powerless to resist the cuteness of sea lions so I’m guessing Clyde and Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas would probably be my favorite. 😉

5 Laura Tellado December 10, 2012 at 3:09 pm

What I think I’ll like best about SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration is Winter Wonderland on Ice. I love watching skaters!

25 Lisa Kovac December 11, 2012 at 10:33 am

For me it’s a tough call as to which would be my favorite: Clyde and Seamore (I know my kids would love the antics!), or the Sea of Trees…I love Christmas trees. (Well, all trees/flowers/plants in general!)

26 Helen December 11, 2012 at 10:56 am

I’d love to see the Shamu Christmas…Miracles show. It’s been years since we’ve visited the park.

27 Autumn Caravona December 11, 2012 at 10:56 am

What I think I will enjoy the most is the Holiday Reflections. I just absolutely love things like that. It is so calming to me. Plus I think it would be really neat to see what they come up with for the Holiday music!

30 Paul L. December 11, 2012 at 10:58 am

Best part of Sea World at Christmas time is that the *entire* park is decorated, rather than just a single land like the other Orlando theme parks.

31 Brittany December 11, 2012 at 11:12 am

I think the most fun thing from Christmas @ Seaworld would have to be the whole park is festive and is decorated. Plus getting to see my 10-month old daughter having fun with watching the lights would just make it more memorable. (Email-windsong.brittany@gmail.com)

32 Kylie December 11, 2012 at 11:37 am

I honestly like everything about SeaWorld but I would have to say my favorite thing about SeaWorld’s Christmas all the decorations all over the park. I love the animals and I want to work with marine animals when I grow up to be older. I would love to have this opportunity!

33 Kayla December 11, 2012 at 12:09 pm

I was never aware that SeaWorld had so many holiday events! By the descriptions, I think I would also enjoy the Sea of Trees the best. It just sounds like a lovely site to see! 🙂

34 Cindy Schultz December 11, 2012 at 12:14 pm

I would give the tickets to a family from church. The dad has been out of work for 9 months and they could use a family fun day.

35 eileenludwig December 11, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Enter contest for four tickets – I will love all of it, especially the ice skating, the dolphins, and the lights – I also followed on twitter and tweeted

Christmas at Sea World is not about the lights, the decorations, or even the animals… it is about spending time together as a family.

49 Vinobaby December 11, 2012 at 5:08 pm

I’ll always love the “Shamu show” (what I’ve called it since I was a kid) the best.

58 Angelic Moore December 11, 2012 at 9:42 pm

It’s been years since we’ve gone to Sea World. We are a family of 4 and we are spending this Christmas home just the four of us. I think it would be a blast to go to Sea World during Christmas time. The kids would LOVE to see the fake snow. LOL
