Spend the Holidays in Orlando
All of your time in Orlando doesn’t have to be spent on campus at UCF — get out there and explore! This time of year is the perfect time to see all of the fun events and holiday excitement going on around Orlando as you take a break from classes. Don’t pack up your student apartment and head home just yet — spend part of your winter break right here in Orlando!
Holidays Around the World
Head to Epcot this holiday season where you can experience a variety of holidays and see how they are celebrated around the world! Three times each day Epcot hosts Holidays Around the World, where there is a stirring retelling of the story of Christmas. A celebrity narrator takes you through the history of the holiday with the help of a 50-piece orchestra and mass choir!
ICE!™ at Gaylord Palms
Head down the road to the Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee where you can experience a truly magical adventure. More than two million pounds of ice have been hauled in to provide a holiday experience that you won’t believe. This indoor winter wonderland includes hand-carved sculptures, four ice slides, a live carving zone, and even indoor snow tubing! This year’s ICE!TM experience takes you on a tour of The Nutcracker and is open through January 4. After you’ve experienced ICE!TM at Gaylord Palms, future holidays won’t be complete without a return visit!
Campus may be quieting down as people head home, but there are still plenty of things going on around town! Head in to Orlando or check out some of the amazing events going on in other cities around UCF for all of the fun that you could be having! Before you know it classes will be starting up again, so don’t miss out on your time to enjoy the break!
