Thank you to Sea World® San Diego for inviting us to their SeaWorld Christmas Celebration. SeaWorld Christmas Celebration began November 18, 2017, and ends January 6, 2018. SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration is a great way to make holiday memories with your family. There is seasonal shopping, festive food and drinks, and stunning live shows.
Throughout the park, you will appreciate the transformation to a wintery, watery wonderland. Celebrate the reason for the season during our mesmerizing new nativity show, O Wondrous Night, inspired by the original story of Christmas. Visit Santa’s Christmas Village to see Santa himself, meet Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ and friends, and savor holiday flavors as you shop for unique gifts and decorations.
We arrived early in the day and we immediately took advantage of planning our day around their holiday shows and attractions. We walked through Rudolph’s Christmastown and took photos of Rudolph and Clarice. We went to the Dolphin Christmas Show. We also walked through Santa’s Christmas Village.
