Image you and your family enjoying the holidays among palm trees and swimming pools, visiting the top attractions in sunny style – sans the heavy winter jacket! Orlando offers a bounty of mesmerizing holiday light displays to provide you with all the seasonal charm, without the seasonal weather.

  • Shamu Christmas Miracles – As the sun sets in beautiful Orlando, head over to the acclaimed Shamu Christmas Miracles nighttime holiday show. Seasonal music set the stages for an awe-inspiring performance by the beloved killer whales. This unique performance is only available during the holiday season, so don’t pass up the chance to be amazed at the talents of these treasured underwater species!
