Christmas events return to SeaWorld and Busch Gardens

03 Nov 2022

SeaWorld Orlando’s award-winning Christmas Celebration is returning this year and it’s bigger and better than ever. On select dates from 11th November to 3rd January 2023, guests will see the theme park transformed into a winter wonderland sparkling with more than three million beautiful lights. The main feature is the Sea of Trees. The wintery, watery wonderland is back immersing guests in a sea of twinkling holiday trees that sparkle to music as they light up the water. During the celebration, guests will also be able to indulge in all-new delicious holiday treats, experience fabulous shows and entertainment and watch an impressive new firework show. SeaWorld will be one of the few places in Central Florida where you can hit the ice. During the day, park guests will have the opportunity to ice skate at Bayside Stadium. Once night falls, you can sit back and relax and watch a show-stopping, ice skating extravaganza “Winter Wonderland on Ice”. Back by popular demand is the Christmas show “O Wondrous Night”. Guests will experience a nativity only SeaWorld can bring to life, complete with more than 30 carols, life-sized puppets, and much more in this spectacular Christmas show.  Plus “Sesame Street: The Nutcracker” will debut at SeaWorld. On select days see your favourite Sesame Street characters telling the iconic Christmas story of “The Nutcracker” in a way only Sesame Street can!

Busch Gardens Christmas Town returns offering brand new experiences. Enjoy millions of twinkling lights, uplifting shows, iconic light displays, festive fireworks and culinary delights every day from 14th November to 9th January 2023. And the best part is that it is included with park admission. Returning fan-favourites include Santa’s North Pole Experience, a unique experience where jolly elves guide guests to interact with Santa in his workshop. Guests can join Cookie Monster, Rosita, Grover, and Zoe in the Sesame Street Safari of Fun area of the park as they help Elmo find his Christmas wish! Families are sure to be singing and dancing along while watching this fun holiday show.
