Christmas time at the parks

Hey Thrill Seekers,

In case you didn’t already know, I’m the biggest fan of Christmas in the office, to everyone else’s annoyance! So I was so happy when the big cheese gave me the OK to write the first Christmas blog of the year by finding out what the parks have got planned for Christmas 2016.

Let’s kick things off with Disney’s Hollywood Studios from the 14th November – 31st December, Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! It’s their amazing fireworks display including special effects and of course, holiday music. Watch as the buildings and rooftops come alive with scenes from Bambi, Cinderella and more.

Disney’s Epcot have their own ‘Winter Wonderland’ with their Candlelight Procession which is held here every year. Enjoy the Christmas Story being told to you by a 50 piece live orchestra along with a choir and a celebrity narrator. Don’t miss out on your BBQ dinner with this Christmas tour and finish off your evening by watching the stunning IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth across the World Showcase Lagoon.

Everyone knows that Disney’s Magic Kingdom has it’s spectacular events that are displayed at Christmas including Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Nothing can beat, in my opinion, the projection show shown on Cinderella’s castle. This brings everything to life with a dash of Tinkerbell’s pixie dust.

If you’re heading over to Universal Studios this Christmas you will see The Macy’s Holiday Parade. Their parade is full of balloons, floats, marching bands, Santa and seasonal sing-alongs for the little ones too. There will be so much to look at you won’t know what to do with yourself! It’s a great event for all the family.

Next door at Universal’s Islands of Adventure they have The Grinchmas where there is a live retelling of Dr. Seuss’s classic ‘The Grinch’. The characters will come to life spreading the Christmas cheer!

SeaWorld Orlando begin their festivities on the 25th November all the way through to the 31st including Winter Wonderland on Ice, Santas Fireside Feast, O Wondrous Night and Shamu’s Christmas Miracles.

Over at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay they have their Christmas Town festivities with singers, dancers, Santa and a traditional Christmas extravaganza inside Dragon-Fire Grill.
