How to Celebrate Christmas on an Orlando, Florida Vacation

Some families celebrate the Christmas holiday by taking a relaxation vacation someplace warm – like sunny Orlando, Florida! Being away from home can make the holiday feel a little strange but they key is to make it feel like you’re home. You can still celebrate the magic of Christmas while enjoying a warm beach vacation!

Stay at a vacation rental home

If you’re opening presents on Christmas morning in a hotel room, it’s definitely not going to feel like Christmas. Renting a vacation home means you get the feeling of a home away from home – and you can decorate it as you wish with a Christmas tree, stockings, presents, and whatever else you’d like. The kids will come running downstairs from their rooms to gather in the family room – just like Christmas back home.

Bring gifts with you

The kids might be thinking, how will Santa find us if we’re not home? Assure them that Santa uses his magic so he knows exactly where they are and nothing will be different. They will still get the same gifts they asked Santa for. Make sure to be sneaky with this and bring already wrapped gifts with you to set up under the tree on Christmas morning as usual.

Singing Christmas Trees

Every year, the First Baptist Church or Orlando hosts a special Singing Christmas Trees event! Your family will get to see a huge choir, full orchestra, worshipful dance, powerful drama, and a beautiful display of 250,000 lights. It’s an event not to be missed!

See The Nutcracker

Christmas just isn’t the same without seeing a production of this famous Tchaikovsky ballet! The Orlando Ballet performs The Nutcracker every year as an annual tradition and there are often different variations for families.

Christmas at Disney

Disney World is a magical place to spend the Christmas holiday because there are so many amazing special events that only happen during this time of year. At the Magic Kingdom, check out Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party with live entertainment, fireworks, and holiday parades!
