SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration begins later this month and the park has released details of their festivities.

The "Sea of Trees" is back for the fifth 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 - The Greatest Story Never Told" 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, an alpaca, a zebu(ox), and three camels. Photo ops with some of the stars will also be available.

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," "Clyde & Seamore's Countdown to Christmas" and "Elmo's Christmas Wish" shows will round out the shows, followed by "Holiday Reflections: Fireworks and Fountains Finale."

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 is $29.99 for adults and $19.99 for children (ages 2-9). 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 and cranberry 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.

You can enjoy SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration select days November 22-30, December 5-7, 12-14 and 19-31.

Guests to the marine park can take advantage of a ticket deal that is running through the end of the year. Kids are free, one per paying adult. These tickets must be purchased in advance.
