Covid-19 has thrown us all for a loop this year and yet again it appears we are seeing cases increase just in time for the holidays. Central Florida is a great place to celebrate the holidays. No matter what you celebrate, we are sure you will find a fun and festive event around the area. We compiled a list of some events that as of right now are continuing to take place around your Orlando apartment.
The holidays are in full force at every Walt Disney World park including the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios. Each park offers something unique for the holidays including holidays treats, shows, and of course special characters including Santa himself. Or check out Disney Springs for shopping, a stroll through Christmas trees, and snow flurries at night.
Universal Orlando showcases Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at both Diagon Alley in Universal Studios Florida and Hogsmeade in Universal's Islands of Adventure. Or everyone's favorite mean and green holiday character the Grinch is at Universal's Islands of Adventure where you can celebrate the Grinchmas season.
Sea World's Christmas Celebration is a favorite for all from over 3 million lights on display to ice skating shows, breakfast with Sesame Street characters and you can also meet Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa.
Legoland goes all out for the holidays from special treats, characters, shows, and of course, Lego builds and models. Legoland also has the Kids' New Year's Party on New Year's Eve which is the perfect way for any kid to bring in the new year.
This outdoor event is perfect in times of Covid-19 and will guarantee to put anyone in the holiday spirit. Stroll through the 50-acre garden and enjoy the lights, holiday music, and interactive elements. Stop along the way for one of the many spots for a good holiday photo with your family!
The Crayola Experience offers a fun holiday option for the kids with singing, animatronic character shows, a Scavenger Hunt, refreshments, and a spot for the kids to make unique gifts.
Christmas at Gaylord Palms is a one stop event for all those in your family. This year they feature I Love Christmas Movies walk-through of all your favorite Christmas movies, Snow Flow Mountain where you can ride a tube down real ice slides, a chance to eat with the Grinch, or have a social distanced photo with Santa. There are also live shows and performances including Cirque Dreams Unwrapped.
We hope this list gets you excited about the holiday season and even with Covid-19 there are many safe options around your apartment in Orlando to celebrate the season. If your kids are asking to visit Santa this year make sure you visit Santa's Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops or Meet Santa at The Mall at Millenia. Both options are contactless and redesigned this year with safety in mind. We hope you enjoy the holiday!
