The year-round sun and warmth of Florida makes it an ideal destination any time of year. After you’ve decided it’s the next destination for a fun-filled Christmas vacation, pack your bags and gather your loved ones for a fun and special Christmas in Orlando 2021 for a vacation full of fun, sun, Christmas treats, as well as some fun indoor activities.
When it comes to Christmas dinner, Orlando knows how to celebrate. Nearly every restaurant (or so it seems) open is hosting some sort of special meal on Christmas Day. From breakfast to dinner and everything in between, restaurants across the city are celebrating with food and fun. Most require advanced reservations for the special meal, so check before showing up at your favorite restaurant. Ask about take out or delivery if you want to avoid crowds.
The theme parks that call Orlando home seem to put on a show for every holiday and season. Main Street, USA in the Magic Kingdom goes all-out for Christmas starting in early November, and each of the Disney parks puts their own spin on the celebration. You’ll experience traditions from around the world at Epcot, and you’ll find Mickey and all his friends decked out in their holiday best throughout the parks. There will even be some special 50th Anniversary flare throughout the parks. Some Disney park restaurants offer traditional Christmas fare. Top it off with special fireworks, parades, light shows, and more and you’ll have a Disney Christmas in Orlando 2021 trip to remember for a lifetime!
Night of a Million Lights
The season of giving is strong at the Night of a Million Lights at the Give Kids the World Village. Watch lights dance and shine in a fairytale neighborhood, walk the path of the sparkling tree trail, and enjoy the festivities of holiday music, treats, and more. Take a tram ride through the storybook village, visit the holiday marketplace for gifts, and make a day full of memories to last a lifetime for yourself, while supporting a cause. The Give Kids the World Village is an 89-acre non-profit resort park full of storybook whimsy that provides critically ill children from all around the world a magical, weeklong ‘wish’ vacation at no cost to them.
Other Theme Parks
While Disney is known for going all-out for the holidays, other Orlando parks like Sea World, Universal Studios, and more will be putting a Christmas spin on things. Enjoy the SeaWorld Sesame Street Christmas Parade, its Winter Wonderland on Ice, and more. Celebrate with your favorite Harry Potter, Minion, Shrek, and Madagascar movie characters, or spend some time with the Whos of Whoville at the Grinchmas performance. There’s also the LEGOLand Bricktacular, including a 30-foot-tall Christmas tree made with LEGO and DUPLO bricks complete with dancing lights and music.
The weather is likely part of the reason you chose Orlando for your Christmas celebration. Getting outside and enjoying the outdoors is a great way to spend some time with those you love outside of the four walls of your accommodations. Resorts, hotels, and vacation rentals alike all have quick access to outdoor spaces like pools, hot tubs, playgrounds, and other provided outdoor spaces. Grab some water and your sun gear and hit the local trails for a hike or rent a bike and explore the area that way. The best part: you’ll have more time to spend outdoors since the scorching sun will be taking a little winter break itself.
Orlando Downtown for the Holidays
The holiday fun can be found outside of the theme parks. Just head downtown any time during the month of December. The area is offering all sorts of free holiday events that are fun for all ages. Be amazed by extravagant holiday décor and lights around places like Lake Eola Park, enjoy holiday movies, and make sure to get in some last-minute holiday gift shopping!
