SeaWorld Orlando will soon get into the holiday spirit with a festive lineup.

  • SeaWorld Christmas Celebration: Nov. 23 - Dec. 31
  • Food, live shows and character meet-and-greets
  • New Rudolph dinner experience

The theme park’s Christmas Celebration kicks off later this month with food, live shows and a million sparkling lights.

SeaWorld’s other holiday offerings include “O Wondrous Night,” a stage show retelling of the Christmas story; “Winter Wonderland on Ice,” a skating show; “Elmo’s Christmas Wish,” a stage show featuring “Sesame Street” characters; “Shamu Christmas Miracles,” a show at Shamu stadium; and “Rudolph’s ChristmasTown," an area featuring giant story books and a chance to meet Rudolph and his pals.

New this year are Dinner with Rudolph, a holiday dinner experience; and Santa Clause at Wild Arctic, a meet-and-greet opportunity with Santa Claus.

Visitors can enjoy additional entertainment and food at The Christmas Market. Located along the park’s Bayside Pathway, it features a model train village and “playful elves.”

Once the Christmas Celebration ends, a new holiday experience will begin—Three Kings Day.

Beginning Jan. 1, the event will celebrate the arrival of the Three Wise Men with festive food and a Three Kings Parade. The event runs daily through Jan. 6.

All holiday activities are included in regular theme park admission.

SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration runs select dates Nov. 23 through Dec. 31.
