We’re sure that will happen! Most of the holiday special features are included with regular admission, however a few are offered at an additional fee. Festivities include:

  • Clyde & Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas*
  • Elmo’s Christmas Wish
  • O Wondrous Night*
  • Shamu® Christmas Miracles*
  • Winter Wonderland on Ice*
  • Santa’s Fireside Feast*
  • Christmas Show Express

Elmo will be the center of attention for your child, along with Grover, Cookie Monster and friends, while the sea lion show tends to be an adult favorite. From several vantage points within the park, you’ll be able to view the sparkling Sea of Trees, and at night, the light show is spectacular! The nighttime holiday show featuring Shamu® is thrilling, set to seasonal music. Another show with lots of music is O Wondrous Night – a 30-minute show based upon The Christmas Story filled with live animals and puppets.
