    Waves of holiday spirit splash over the park during SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration. Carols fill the air, a sparkling sea of trees light up the water and skaters dance on ice. Here in a wintery, watery wonderland, guests can journey to the North Pole on THE POLAR EXPRESS Experience, share a smile with a sea lion, and enjoy stunning live shows inspired by the natural world. With everything from elves to Elmo, and from Santa to Shamu, SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration is where the season meets the sea. Events take place on select dates November 17 through December 31, 2012.

    Families and friends can once again enjoy the spirit of Christmas during SeaWorld’s holiday-themed shows and festivities:

    Returning Seasonal Favorites Include:

    • O Wondrous Night tells the greatest story never told, with more than 30 carols, based upon the Christmas Story and told through the eyes of a variety of live animals. Everyone will be entertained by this touching, light-hearted and glorious celebration featuring a host of angels, animals and the true glory of Christmas. And new this year, guests will have the opportunity to take photos with some of the stars from the show!

    • Winter Wonderland on Ice is an ice skating extravaganza where Christmas comes to life through towering water fountains, magnificent fireworks and some of the most talented ice skaters in the world. This is a don’t-miss, holiday sensation.

    • SeaWorld invites guests to experience the grace and beauty of our Shamu family at Shamu Stadium, during the night-time show, Shamu Christmas…Miracles. Thrilling seasonal music rings out as whales soar through the air in a performance that will take the audience on a stirring voyage into the heart of the holidays.

    • Clyde and Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas features Santa’s helpers, Clyde and Seamore, who are bringing their own brand of comedy to Christmas this year. Our loveable sea lions, along with a few mischievous otters, a comical elf, and a wintery walrus or two, search for Santa.

    • A Sesame Street Christmas is a festive and fun musical celebration that will have the little ones smiling all the way home. Through dance, laughter, and interactive sing-a-longs, Elmo, Telly Monster and the rest of Abby Cadabby’s Sesame Street friends teach her what Christmas means to them.

    • SeaWorld celebrates the season during Holiday Reflections: Fireworks and Fountains Finale, with soaring fountains, dazzling lights, and festive fireworks, choreographed to joyous holiday musical favorites. Experience a wondrous SeaWorld Christmas connection that lights the night.

    • All Aboard! At the park’s Wild Arctic attraction, guests embark on a heart-warming journey to the North Pole aboard THE POLAR EXPRESS Experience, based on the film from Warner Bros. Pictures and Shangri-La Entertainment, inspired by the beloved Caldecott Medal children's book by Chris Van Allsburg. Discover the sights, sounds, and smells of the season as family and friends are immersed in the dazzling wonder of this beloved holiday classic. Upon arrival at the North Pole, guests can meet Santa Claus himself, and encounter astounding animals in a wintery wonderland.

      THE POLAR EXPRESS Experience is based on the film from Warner Bros. Pictures and Shangri-La Entertainment, inspired by the beloved Caldecott Medal children's book by Chris Van Allsburg about a young boy doubting the magic of the holidays who takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. He embarks on a journey of self-discovery that shows that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe.


    In addition to the incredible seasonal shows and attractions, the amazing Sea of Trees includes more than 100 massive trees, each sparkling, lighted and choreographed to classic holiday tunes, making a dramatic display around SeaWorld’s center lake.

    The Christmas Market, located on the park’s Bayside Pathway, features unique artisans and culinary delights. At this festive, bustling market, guests can find one-of-a-kind gifts and dine on scrumptious holiday delights.

    Plus, enjoy a delicious dinner of Christmas favorites with Santa and Mrs. Claus during Santa’s Fireside Feast, a charming, warm-hearted holiday experience. Meet Santa himself, and listen to a classic holiday poem told onstage as never before to create Christmas memories that will last a lifetime. This sumptuous, all-you-can-eat seasonal meal takes place weekends of SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration.

    Totally agree Kate. It's my second favourite park to visit at Christmas next to MK.
    Love the Winter Wonderland ice skating show and Shamus Christmas Miracles.

    The Christmas trees were up when we went for the Halloween

    I would think they look nicer when it's dark though, the sun was catching them but they almost looked out of place in the lagoon

    wow thanks everyone that's definitely got me excited about visiting in december!

    I don't know why but we just have never been WOWed by seaworld but then I read your posts about things I've never seen/heard of and I guess that's why!

    The more I think about it, the more I realise we've planned Disney and so we know whats there whereas seaworld we kinda go and wander aimlessly for a while.

    SeaWorld has changed a lot over the years and sadly in my opinion not for the better but every person's opinion is different, it is very subjective.

    With SeaWorld before it was all about the animals and marine life, sadly, now it just seems to be more commercialised. We bought annual passes this year as we haven't been for a while, we are going again within 12 months and we got a good deal. I won't be renewing the pass after this year though.

    If you haven't been for a long time or never before then yep definitely give it a go. The extra things they do are very good, the Halloween Spooktacular was included in your admission and the food seems to have got better. My main gripe is that all the things you used to be able to wander over and do are now closed off for up close tours and you have to pay extra. I think the only things you can get close to now without paying are the rays in a couple of places.

    The sea lions are in a smaller area and you can no longer walk round the cove, the dolphins have a very small area for you to get close to them as the main part is closed off for people paying for food and the priviledge of the area.

    It's things like that, I think have changed SeaWorld into being just another park out to make money.

    Very negative comments I know, but I really was disappointed this year As I say though if you have never been or not been for a long time it's certainly worth a visit

    ok well it's good to know so my expectations are set accordingly.

    Seaworld was the first place I went to mannnny years ago and I tried to buy a burger and a beer at 11:59am. I don't think they were allowed to sell beer until midday and this rather scary lady leaned over the counter and yelled in my face "its first thing in the morning, don't y'all have a fear of GOD!" well not so much a fear of god but pretty petrified by you lady!

    I've always thought that the staff who love the animals were great. You can tell there's such a great bond and they used to love answering questions. Last time we went though it was more about food/drink and wow, it's one of those "hot"parks where the sun just beats down on you.

    Polar Express ride was a total disappointment too.

    Anyway may be worth a try for christmas shows because I'm a complete sucker for all things christmassy
