Holiday celebrations abound in Orlando's many theme parks! For this list, we've paired it down to our absolute favorite festivities that are not to be missed in the coming year.
A Not-So-Scary Halloween
You're invited to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this October! While many guests enjoy Disney World at Christmas, the park's spooktacular is often overlooked by Disney lovers. Many fans would argue that Mickey's ghoulish adventure is by far the best holiday park time you'll experience. Come dressed as your favorite prince, princess, or villain and enjoy the park after dark. Trick-or-treating is a blast for the kids, while adult adventurers will love snatching the perfect selfie under one of the many spooky photo points.
Guests will want to purchase a ticket to the party separately from a day park ticket. While the main event starts in the evening, visiting on Halloween day is actually a great time to enjoy rides, cool weather, and shorter wait times since most guests will be arriving at night. No matter which route you choose, spooky thrills are sure to delight!
A Very Magical Christmas
Christmas has come early to Universal with the announcement of Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! There's nothing cozier than a mug of butterbeer and a walk through the snowy lanes of Hogsmeade. Witches and wizards of all ages will experience the fantasy and curiosity that awaits inside a transformed winter wonderland featuring holiday treats, magical decor, and all new interactive spells.
The ghosts of Hogwarts Castle are in full celebration as a holiday banquet awaits within, reminiscent of the much loved Christmas festivities in the icon films and novels.
A Splash of Christmas
If you're looking for a more relaxing Christmas experience, check out SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration. Over 3 million twinkling lights will captivate visitors of all ages. Guests can enjoy a variety of shows and up close encounters with orcas, dolphins, and more. You might even be lucky enough to bump into a very famous red-nosed reindeer!
