Things You MUST DO At SeaWorld San Antonio's Christmas Celebration

Every year we look forward to checking out the lights at Sea World. They do a wonderful job decorating the park. It runs until January 6th. We usually go early in December so it's not overly crowded.


Here are things we must see every year when we go.









1. See all the lights. (Duh.) I mean, that's the whole point, right? There's 9 million of them set up around the park.
















2. Meet Rudolph and friends. There's an entire Rudolph area. Plus you can even book a dinner to have dinner with Rudolph and his friends. We did this last year and recommend it.






3. Sip hot chocolate. Sometimes it can get chilly. We brought our cups we got last year and only paid $2 to fill up. (I believe the cups with hot chocolate are $6.99 to start with, but then only $1.99 for refills.)






4. Wear light up necklaces. You can buy them there, or cheaper at places like Walmart and the Dollar Store.






5. Check out the Coca-Cola bears. There's a bunch of them set out.








6. Watch a holiday show. We always love watching Pets Ahoy. They take rescue pets and train them to do tricks. It's pretty impressive.






7. Eat some holiday treats. They have cookies, cider, hot chocolate, plus more!




8. Be sure to come during the day to check out the decorations clearly. You could miss some when it gets dark.










9. Visit with a reindeer. They are gorgeous.





10. See it snow! Check your map to find out when it happens.





11. See the Tunnel of Lights. A music and light show goes off about every 20 minutes. Or you can just walk through it as is!









We always have a great time when we go. The lights truly are beautiful and get us in the holiday mood.


Where are you favorite places to check out Christmas lights?

  43. Sorry I would never visit SeaWorld. The abuse those poor animals face is unspeakable. Would you like to be caged up with little to no room while being forced to perform 'tricks' all day long? I think not. Suzanne

  44. A Whale's Tail cookie! I'm in.
    I know you get cold nights there - trust me, I do. It's just so hard to motivate for all the wonderful outdoor things around here because it's SO cold.
    I need to visit you.
