Seaworld’s Christmas Celebrations kicked off the day after Thanksgiving. Currently, the celebration is only on the weekends until December 17th where the celebration will run nightly until January 2. If you haven’t been to Seaworld to see their Christmas shows, I highly recommend it. The event this year is great and a lot of fun.
Clyde and Seamore are counting down to Christmas and they are making sure they are ready for Santa to come with help from one of his Elf’s. The show contrasts the normal day-time show, but is also very similar in a few aspects.

An Ice show in.. Florida? Okay, it sounds like it won’t work, but it works very well. Temperatures are starting to fall into the 40s and it really brings the Christmas spirit alive. With fancy costumes, fun dancing, and neat tricks, Seaworld’s Christmas on Ice is perfect for the atmosphere.

Christmas at Seaworld wouldn’t be fun without Shamu’s Miracles! If you’ve seen Believe, you’ll want to see Shamu’s Miracles. The Christmas show has various Christmas soundtracks, live singing, and most importantly: Shamu. The show is all about Miracles and how wonderful they can truly be.

Seaworld has removed all their adorable pumpkin fish from their Halloween Spooktacular and replaced them with lighting all around the park. Around the Waterfront, you can find decorations such as a giant wreath, nut crackers, candy hanging from trees and even snow! If you stay near the entrance to the Sesame show long enough

Seaworld’s Wild Arctic attraction has made it’s seasonal layover into the Polar Express. The seasonal attraction is based on the movie, The Polar Express, and it features various scenes from the movie. After the ride is over, riders have the opportunity to see Beluga Whales, Walruses, and Polar Bears. On top of that, you can get your photograph with Santa and drink some delicious hot chocolate.

The Sea of Trees is brand new at Seaworld this year. Last year Seaworld had a Christmas tree at the middle point of the bridge and various decorations, but it was nothing as elobrate as their decorations this year.
Here’s a shot of last year’s decorations:
Seaworld has really amped up the area with tons of Christmas trees all lit with LEDs. During certain periods of the night, the trees and fountains will dance. The fireworks is one of those times when the trees will dance with the fountains. It’s beautiful and heart warming

Each night during the event, Seaworld has holiday fireworks to end the night with a bang. Fireworks begin 5 minutes prior to park closing. A great place to see the fireworks from is the Bayside Staduim, where Christmas on Ice takes place. For the final showing of the night, the fireworks should start just moments later.

Seaworld is known for various animals through out the park, and during our special media preview of the event, Seaworld brought out a pair of penguins and an Otter, named Boris. If you want to see penguins and otters during your visit, visit the Penguin Encounter located near the games and see Clyde and Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas!
