Have a cool Christmas in Orlando!

This holiday season, Orlando has a little something for everyone out there! From dazzling lights to snowball fights, there’s sure to be something to please the whole family and you won’t have to worry about frostbite!

Take a leisurely stroll through Leu’s Holiday House November 14-January 4 to get yourself in the spirit. The gorgeous, fully restored 19th century Leu House Museum has invited some of the top interior designers in Orlando to spruce it up for the holidays! In the garden, you’ll wander through paths lined with camphor trees, camellias, and ancient oak trees. Admission: Included in regular admission. Adults $7, Kids 5-18 $2. For more information, simply go to www.leugardens.org or call 407-246-2620.

Looking for something a little more active? Gaylord Palms has fun for the whole family with ICE! and SNOW, November 20-January 2. That’s right - nearly 2 million pounds of ice have gone into the construction of ICE! featuring DreamWorks’ Shrek The Halls, a sight to see that’s filled with fun characters. To make it even better, this year sees the debut of Kung Fu Panda Awesome SNOW, giving the opportunity to go snow tubing, frolic through underground snow tunnels, and even throw snowballs! Admission: Varies by weekday and week-end. Contact www.gaylordhotels.com or call 407-586-200 for all the cool details.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without The Nutcracker, and on December 3rd, the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre is host to the funkiest production around! The Chocolate Nutcracker is a tour-de-force of music and dancing, blending multi-cultural style with traditional inspiration and story. Admission: $23.00 and $43.00.
