28 Must-Do Orlando Christmas and Holiday Events for Kids
It's the most wonderful time of the year, and even with COVID-19 restrictions in place there are still dozens of fun Christmas things to do for families in the Orlando area, from all-out theme park displays to holiday parades and markets.
At the theme parks, awe at more than 3 million lights on display at SeaWorld or explore a Harry Potter Christmas at Universal Orlando. Families can visit the charming town of Mount Dora for a lighted boat parade, have a feast with the Grinch at Gaylord Palms or experience snowfall at Celebration Town Center. Be sure to plan time for a trip to Florida's first snow park this holiday season as well.
