Orlando, Florida is a fantastic vacation destination for Christmastime travelers looking to add some magic to their holiday fun. When you’re heading this way, be sure to add the following Orlando theme parks to your itinerary and elevate every moment of your holiday getaway in 2022!
Enjoy the Best of LEGOLAND Christmas Fun
Orlando-bound travelers at Christmastime who are excited to pair a passion for Legos with all things holiday fun will find what they’re looking for and more at LEGOLAND Florida Resort! The Holidays at LEGOLAND event is being held on December 3-4, 10-11, 17-18, and 22-31st this year. This highly anticipated gathering gives guests a chance to enjoy the park transformed into a winter wonderland while also finding time to take holiday photos with fan-favorite Lego Movie characters. Little ones are encouraged to drop off their letters to Santa at the park which sets up a holiday post office each year. In addition to the rides, shows, and attractions, LEGOLAND provides its guests with holiday-themed beverage and snack options this time of year too. It’s a family-friendly experience you simply won’t want to miss out on.
Spend Time with Loved Ones at Universal Orlando Resort
Universal Orlando Resort has a way of bringing the movies to life for guests year-round. Over Christmas, the park also provides guests with reasons to embrace the holiday fun! Holidays at Universal will be hosted from November 12, 2022, through January 1, 2023. During this timeframe, visitors can immerse themselves in the Grinch’s Who-Ville experience at Seuss Landing and even enjoy the Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular in style. Another great Universal Orlando Resort stop to check out over Christmas is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. During the holidays, this part of the park adds even more sparkle and magic into the experience as Hogwarts Castle is decked out at its very best! Those who make time to stroll through Diagon Alley will find they’ll have no problem accessing an abundance of hot butter beer for sale. While The Wizarding World of Harry Potter always offers guests access to incredible shows and performances, many put a holiday spin on the fun during Christmas.
Embrace the Spirit of the Season at Walt Disney World
It’s fair to say that many travelers heading to Orlando come this way with a trip to Disney World on their itinerary with good reason! Those who enjoy Disney World theme parks over Christmas will find a seemingly endless list of options to check out when it comes to shows, performances, and holiday-themed attractions. If you happen to have any last-minute shopping to take care of before Christmas, a trip to Disney Springs will put you in a thoroughly festive mood! This time of year, Disney Springs is covered in holiday décor and there are often live musical performances of holiday favorite songs to match. From the Disney Springs snowflake skaters to the Christmas Tree stroll available to visitors, it seems retail therapy is even more magical in Orlando over the holidays.
EPCOT also hosts its own Christmas fun with the arrival of the International Festival of the Holidays. This highly anticipated annual event features a dazzling candlelight processional as well as amazing food and beverage options that are holiday-themed from across the globe. Some of the notable performances that will take to the stage this year include Los Posada with Mariachi Cobre, the Chinese Lion Dance, and Canadian Holiday Voyageurs.
At Magic Kingdom, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party will be in full swing through December 22, 2022. This event is held on select nights and includes a fireworks display, character meet-and-greets, as well as savory holiday food options to enjoy. Cinderella’s Castle is stunning in its holiday décor while Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is not to be missed!
