Best Things to Do in Orlando in November: Thanksgiving, Holiday Lights, Festivals

The holiday season is upon us in Orlando and that means November is filled with festive activities at the theme parks, including the SeaWorld Christmas Celebration and the Holidays at Universal Orlando Resort. Christmas light shows are popping up, too, including a drive-thru lights display and walk-thru holiday village, and of course, the long Thanksgiving weekend will be here before we know it. 

We're also enjoying the final fall activities in Orlando, including corn mazes, outdoor movies, and a fall festival. Enjoy an air show earlier in the month, or try a 5K as a family on Thanksgiving Day in Orlando. 

For those Orlando families who prefer to stay closer to home, there is a variety of virtual events on the November calendar. In the meantime, sign up for our FREE Mommy Poppins Orlando newsletter to get all the latest news and events delivered straight to your inbox.

Do remember to wear masks and maintain social distancing. If an event, looks too crowded, don't be afraid to leave or try using the "nearby" search feature on our event calendar to find something else to do.
