Wow, Lots To Do At The Christmas Celebration At SeaWorld

We absolutely love Christmas lights, and Sea World San Antonio has the most in the area so we always check them out. You can see the lights until January 2nd. (Buy tickets here.)

But lights aren't the only thing the Christmas Celebration has to offer.

For starters, we saw the Sesame Street Christmas Parade which made my millennial heart happy. I absolutely love Big Bird, so seeing him was fabulous. I remember watching Follow That Bird as a kid and being so worried about him because he sang this incredibly sad song called "I'm A Blue Bird." 

Anyhow. It all worked out in the end and Big Bird is alive and well:

There are different themes of Christmas lights, so you won't see the same ones around the park. 

There are TONS of food options available this year. We got the s'mores:

I highly recommend getting this holiday sampler so you can try a bunch of the food and drinks that are around the park. Get the lanyard here and check out the menus! The card is good until January 2nd so you don't have to use it all in one day. 

We even got a light up holiday mug that I filled with gingerbread hot chocolate. Delish:

If you need holiday photos for a card, this is the place to go. Not only are there lights, but Santa is there for photos as well. We didn't wait and see him this time though.

Yup, there's plenty of Christmas trees:

We always love posing with the decor:

Santa told her that her Christmas list was too expensive:

We always love saying hi to Rudolph & Friends. You can even dine with them! We did this a few years back and it was a fun experience with lots of tasty food and you get one on one time with the characters. You can buy tickets for that here OR there's a dine with Santa option, which we've also done. 

We absolutely love the Candy Cane Lane area. We brought our Gingerbread friend Jones to enjoy the area:

It's such a pretty area. With the Wonka film coming out, you can pretend you're Willy Wonka:

Oh, be sure to check out the stage show O Wondrous Night. It's the story of Jesus but told in the perspective of the animals. There's singing. There's dancing. I'm not religious, but I am always down for a fabulous song and dance number. Oh, and real animals eventually emerge. You can see the show at 615 or 8. Everyone is incredibly talented!

While you're watching the show, get the mini donuts from the stand nearby. There are various flavors. I picked up the cinnamon sugar and YUM:

On the way out, we stopped in the Candy Cane forest:

The giant bears live there too:

Again, you have until January 2nd to check out the Christmas Celebration. I promise you'll have the best time. We'll be visiting several times to try different holiday foods and sip on hot chocolate.
