The Amway Center has a jam-packed month of events, beginning with a slew of headlining concerts and acts visiting the City Beautiful in December, as Barry Manilow (Dec. 8), Halestorm & In This Moment (Dec. 14), Trans-Siberian Orchestra (Dec. 15) and Cirque Musica Holiday Presents Wonderland (Dec. 18) grace the downtown venue. The Orlando Magic are in full swing in December as well with seven home games against top NBA teams like the Denver Nuggets, Toronto Raptors and Indiana Pacers, while the Orlando Solar Bears play host to six home games throughout the month.    

Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts 
The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts always has a diverse collection of shows playing, and December is no different, with a variety of concerts and shows taking center stage.

Theme Parks
The Walt Disney World Resort is full of holiday events in December, beginning with Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom, a separate ticketed event that includes holiday-inspired parades, shows, entertainment and snacks! Magic Kingdom isn’t the only park to experience some holiday magic, however. Epcot gets into the holiday spirit with Holidays Around the World, featuring the Candlelight Processional, holiday events and a special holiday finale to Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. Finally, Disney’s Hollywood Studios features a Flurry of Fun this season, as Sunset Boulevard becomes a winter wonderland and the Hollywood Tower Hotel is transformed with a laser and projection show! Enhanced holiday décor and greetings with Santa are additional offerings, while the Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Nighttime Spectacular is the perfect way to end a day of holiday fun.  

Universal Orlando Resort allows guests to experience Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, as Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley are turned into a holiday wonderland. Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s is sure to get anyone in the Christmas spirit, while the live re-telling of Dr. Seuss’s classic holiday tale starring The Grinch is one of the most popular events at the Universal Orlando Resort during the Christmas season.

At SeaWorld Orlando, guests can experience stunning live shows, meet-and-greets with Santa and his reindeer and over 3 million twinkling white lights.

December truly is the most wonderful time of the year, and there’s no better place to experience it than in the City Beautiful!
