SeaWorld Orlando plans their annual Christmas Celebration


shamu SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration begins later this month and the park has released details of their festivities, to be held Nov. 21-22, 27-29, and Dec. 4-6, 11-13, 18-31. The "Sea of Trees" is back for the sixth year. Over 100 decorated holiday trees will line the water, featuring lights that dance to your favorite holiday tunes. This will begin after 6:00pm. "O Wondrous Night" will return. This 30-minute show that tells the traditional Christmas story from the Bible, but with a twist - it's told from the perspective of the animals in the nativity. The animals are portrayed by puppets at the beginning of the show to allow the audience to learn the personality of the animals, and then will be replaced with real animals at a "key magical moment." Animals involved include sheep, doves, goats, an alpaca, a zebu and camels. Other old favorites will be returning as well. The Bayside Stadium stage will once again play host to the "Winter Wonderland on Ice" skating show. "Shamu Christmas Miracles," and "Elmo's Christmas Wish" shows will round out the shows. For guests who wish to have reserved seating for Shamu Christmas Miracles, O Wondrous Night and Winter Wonderland on Ice, there is an option for a Christmas Celebration Reserved Seating Package for $24. This also includes a dining voucher good at any participating restaurant. Also available will be the Polar Express Experience, transformed from the Wild Arctic attraction. This simulator ride will take guests on a train ride from the movie and culminate with a visit with Santa. In addition to their other holiday festivities, SeaWorld Orlando is hosting Santa's Fireside Feast where guests can meet Santa and Mrs. Claus. On select Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through December 24 (extra dates scheduled right during Thanksgiving and Christmas weeks), the dinner show starts at $29. It includes a buffet dinner and storytelling by Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves. The buffet offers salads, roasted turkey with gravy, honey baked ham, cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean almandine, macaroni and cheese, cakes, cobblers, cheesecakes and more. Children can meet Santa and share their Christmas wishes with him. At the end of the meal, families can take a complimentary family photo with a holiday backdrop, then conclude the evening with sugar cookies from Mrs. Claus. News source: SeaWorld
