One of the most popular dining experiences for families visiting Orlando is the T-Rex restaurant in Disney Springs. Unfortunately as it’s so popular it’s also very hard to get a reservation. There is a way though to skip the queues at T-Rex and get a table without an advanced booking.

Christmas Holiday Events in Celebration Florida 2018

Now Snowing in Celebration

November 24th through Dec 31st 2018

Christmas in Orlando is celebrated in a typically traditional style at Celebration Town. Now Snowing events kick off on Nov 24 with the Tree Lighting Ceremony from 5.30 – 9.00pm.

The main event, one which thrills every youngster present, is the Nightly Snowfall. ‘Snoap’ is blasted out of the street lanterns high into the sky before fluttering back down to land gently on Market Street. For children who have never seen snow, it is truly magical.

Nightly Snowfalls are at 6.00, 7.00, 8.00 and 9.00 pm.

A synthetic ice rink in Market Street, ice skates for rent, perhaps even some Christmas cheer, all combine to present a seriously fun experience. Open from 4pm – 10pm daily.

Plus there’s Santa in his chalet waiting for the naughty and nice of all ages.

Two fun modes of transport are on hand: a horse-drawn carriage ride or the Celebration Express Train.
