SeaWorld Orlando’s award-winning Christmas Celebration is back and better than ever this year on select dates from Nov. 10 through Jan. 2. This spectacular holiday event features a new show, “Mrs. Claus’ Magic Kitchen,” deliciously festive food and beverage offerings, and the introduction of their new Christmas Market. 

A guest favorite returns this year with the Sea of Trees. Visitors are immersed into a wintery, watery wonderland filled with twinkling holiday trees that sparkle to the music as they light up the water. Here, dazzling images come to life on more than 100 trees, including a giant, glistening centerpiece that towers 70 feet above the water. 

New this year is the captivating holiday show, "Mrs. Claus’ Magic Kitchen." Mrs. Claus takes center stage in a whimsical culinary journey, attempting to master social media while crafting her renowned Christmas cookie recipes. The holiday spirit continues in Sesame Street Land with the return of the popular Sesame Street Christmas Parade and Elmo’s Christmas Wish live show at the Seaport Theatre.

SeaWorld Orlando boasts Central Florida’s only outdoor ice rink at Bayside Stadium, hosting public daytime skating followed by the mesmerizing “Winter Wonderland on Ice” at night, featuring professional skaters amid a sparkling backdrop of trees and fountains.

Guests can indulge in the flavors of the season with new culinary offerings, such as the Rustic Gingerbread Cake and Mistletoe Lambchops. Seasonal cocktails like the Mistletoe Margarita and Not Santa’s Milk and Cookies are perfect for sipping while strolling through the park. Sampling lanyards are available for those eager to try a variety of treats.

End a day at the park with the Holiday Reflections: Fireworks Finale. This firework show lights up the sky, choreographed to the sounds of joyous holiday music at the end of each night of the Christmas Celebration.
