What To Do When Vacationing In Orlando in Winter

Visiting Orlando, Florida is a great winter getaway. The weather will be comfortably warm and slightly cooler at night but you will never need more than a light sweater. You can still visit all of the popular theme parks and attractions without any of the crowds! There are also many special events for the holidays that most people miss out on when they visit during the summer. Here are out top picks for a winter Orlando vacation.


Light Up UCF

Each holiday season, the University of Central Florida coordinates a big light show with ice skating, rides, and other fun attractions. Listen to your favorite holiday songs and see snow falling and maybe watch a Christmas movie or two. Don’t miss the Light Up Express Train or the Arctic Glide Ice Slide!


Dickens by Candelight

This local favorite performance is a three-person interactive show providing theater-goers with a delightfully unique opportunity to experience A Christmas Carol the way it was intended to be told: as a Ghost Story. The tale cleverly envelops the audience as the characters move through and around the guests who are seated at treat-laden tables.


Legoland® Christmas Spectacular

During the holiday season, Legoland® park brings in a 30-foot-tall Christmas tree, a life-size Santa, reindeer, and sleigh made of thousands of Legos! You can even meet Lego Santa and a Lego Toy Soldier and join in on holiday-themed scavenger hunts with a chance to win prizes.


SeaWorld Christmas Celebration

Here you’ll get to meet Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, take a picture with Santa in his workshop, go on a stroll through the festive ‘sea of holiday trees,’ watch performances like: Elmo’s Christmas Wish, Winter Wonderland On Ice, O Wonderous Night®, Clyde and Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas, and even a special nighttime Shamu® Christmas Miracles show by the Shamu family.


Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

Join Mickey at this festive winter celebration for live entertainment, spectacular fireworks and an oh-so-jolly holiday parade. See Anna and Elsa perform on the Castle Forecourt Stage, hear your favorite characters sing holiday carols and see the Cinderella Castle aglow with enchanting holiday illuminations!
