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.

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!

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.

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)

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!

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! :)

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.

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.

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.
