Christmas in Orlando 2015
FREE (and Almost Free) Christmas Events In and Around Orlando, FL

The Orlando area is just full of things to do to celebrate the holiday season! I’ll focus on the free things in this blog post. If you’ve never experienced a holiday season in Orlando, you’re in for a treat!

Christmas at Gaylord Palms - 6000 West Osceola Parkway, Kissimmee
While there are a variety of Christmas events and things that do require a ticket purchase, you can experience Gaylord Palm’s dozens of lavish holiday displays that include more than 2 million twinkling Christmas lights and acres of larger-than-life decorations! You can enjoy this amazing outing until January 3, 2016.
Ice Skating at Winter In the Park - 401 South Park Avenue, Winter Park
When was the last time you went ice skating? You might not think we could offer that here in Orlando, but we do! Admission for the entire day is only $12 per person and that includes the skates. My advice would be to plan a hot chocolate session afterwards! You can go ice skating at Winter In the Park until January 10, 2016.
Winter Park History Museum Holiday Open House - 761 Old England Ave, Winter Park
At just $10 for admission, you’ll enjoy holiday cheer, wine and hors d’oeuvres!
20th annual Merry Tuba Christmas - Park Avenue & Garfield Avenue, Winter park
Take a break from shopping on Saturday, December 19th at 1:00 pm for a FREE 1 hour concert featuring tuba, euphonium, sousaphone & baritone players of all ages providing the rich sounds of Christmas!
Santa’s Winter Wonderland Village - 413 North Alafaya Trail, Orlando
This is one of the best FREE holiday events in Orlando! The event includes thousands of Christmas lights and holiday displays, holiday foods, Santa’s Workshop, and unique European amusement rides decorated for the Christmas season provided by James E. Strates Shows.
These are just a few of the holiday events in the Orlando area that I recommend to first-timers as well as area residents to enjoy just a fraction of what the Christmas season holds. While you’re in the area, be sure to stop at one of these 4 top rated, budget friendly - family restaurants.
