Gather your family and meet your festive friends at SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration, taking place from 23 November to 31 December. For five weeks only, the park is transforming into a winter wonderland with more than 3 million sparkling lights.



Experience award-winning entertainment, from the ALL-NEW Sesame Street Christmas Parade to seasonal shows like O Wondrous Night; rub noses with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer; or head to Wild Arctic and visit Santa himself. Also NEW this year, park-goers have the added chance to dine with jolly old Saint Nick over a sumptuous festive meal with the help of his Kitchen Elves. Don’t miss the unforgettable Christmas Celebration you can only find at SeaWorld.

Christmas Shows
  • Returning for another year of festive fun, guests can immerse themselves in the story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer at Rudolph’s ChristmasTown. Stroll past life-size story book vignettes featuring the classic tale, and meet beloved characters including: Rudolph, Clarice, Bumble and Yukon Cornelius.
  • In O Wondrous Night, enjoy a live nativity complete with more than 30 carols, life-sized puppets and animals in a spectacular Christmas favourite based on The Christmas Story. Told through the eyes of the animals that were there, O Wondrous Night is a touching, light-hearted and glorious musical with a host of angels, animals and the true glory of Christmas.
  • Experience the power and beauty of killer whales in our nighttime Christmas show: Miracles. From the sweeping vocal majesty of a unique soundtrack to the visual majesty of SeaWorld’s killer whales, Miracles will take you on a stirring voyage into the heart of the festive season.
  • Christmas comes to life on a stage of ice, jewels and lights as skaters dazzle and delight in a show-stopping, ice skating extravaganza. A sea of sparkling trees and towering fountains dancing in the background come together to create a don’t-miss experience for the season that the entire family will enjoy.
  • As part of SeaWorld's transformation into a winter wonderland, don't miss the all-new Sesame Street Christmas Parade, with fantastic floats decorated for the celebration. Excitement is also running high for Sea Lion High’s Christmas pageant - join the students and faculty of Sea Lion High for their hilarious new Christmas Special.



Sights to See
  • Take a stroll through a wintery, watery wonderland immersed in a sea of twinkling Christmas trees that sparkle to music as they light up the water in Sea of Trees. Dazzling images come to life on over 100 trees, including a giant glistening centrepiece that towers 70 feet above the water. Walk along the water’s edge for some Christmas shopping at the Shoppes at Waterfront as a magical flurry of snow falls over SeaWorld Orlando while Christmas sounds and smells fill the air.
