The holidays are hitting ICON Park, Home of the Orlando Observation Wheel, this month and it’s a celebration you won’t want to miss! Say hello to Santa, ride the Eye Express, enjoy a Holiday Nights Light Show on The Wheel at Icon Park at 8 pm and 10 pm on Friday and Saturday nights, and much more! Don’t forget to dine with them on your visit. You won’t want to miss a delicious dish at Tin Roof Orlando, Uncle Julio’s, Sugar Factory, Shake Shack, or any of their other fabulous restaurants.

Whether you’re into Christmas Couture or want to paint a masterpiece filled with Christmas Bliss, Paint Nite will get you in the holiday spirit! Plus, you can re-gift your masterpiece for a holly, jolly, holiday gift.
HO HO HO! Leave your chestnuts at the door because the only thing that’ll be getting roasted on International Drive Orlando is the fat-man himself! Some of Santa’s closest fictional friends will hit the Improv Orlando stand to bombard the man in red with some good-natured (and some not-so-good-natured) jokes. But beware, you may end up on the Naughty List for attending this holiday event (but it’ll totally be worth it)!
Tickets are $10 or you can bring a donation of a new/unwrapped toy for admission.
Once again, Universal Orlando Resort is putting a little mischief in your merry with their new holiday lineup. Experience Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter as Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley are transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with a moving light show on the castle. Visit Whoville and find yourself in Dr. Seuss’ classic holiday tale starring The Grinch. Lastly, feel like you’re in New York City at the Macy’s Parade as the Minions, Donkey, and other of your favorite Universal characters join Santa Claus in the all-new Universal Holiday Parade! 
SeaWorld has risen to new heights to provide family, friendly, entertainment during the holiday season! Dine with Rudolph, visit Santa Claus at Wild Arctic, laugh at Clyde & Seamore’s hilarious Countdown to Christmas, visit ChristmasTown, watch Shamu’s Christmas Miracles, see a Sea of Trees, and much more!
A bit of a Scrooge? Skip the holiday happenings but still enjoy everything I-Drive has to offer by checking out our upcoming events.
Happy Holidays!
