At ICON Park, we love the Christmas season, and take pride in being Orlando’s Home for the Holidays. But let’s be real, it’s been “beginning to look a lot like Christmas” since Halloween. If you’re feeling a little wassail-weary by now, you’re not alone.
For those out there needing a few hours of refuge from all the mistletoe and holly, ICON Park has all the timeless warmth of those beloved Christmases past without the in-your-face hype. Here’s just a few ways you can spend a laidback holiday here at Orlando’s Hometown Playground.
Take a Yuletide Flight
If you’re looking to escape the bustle of the holiday crowds, why not get above it all? Say, 400 ft. above it all? The Wheel at ICON Park is the perfect way to enjoy all the sights of the season without fighting the throngs. This twenty-two-minute tour of the City Beautiful’s holly-decked skyline is one of the most chill ways to be a part of the holiday magic.
For a little added relaxation, reserve The Wheel’s Sky Bar and enjoy some Christmas “spirits” as you soar the seasonal skies. Trust us, it’s all the “buzz” this time of year.
Enjoy Christmas… in a Cup
Whether you’re super into Christmas or only lightly seasonal, there’s no doubt about it that the season brings with it some of the tastiest treats around. If you want to savor some holiday flavors in peace, we recommend the secluded setting of iCafe de Paris.
Set back from the ICON Park Lawn, this continental café boasts a delicious menu of crepes, cookies, coffees, and some of the finest hot chocolate in town. It’s the perfect place to satisfy your sweet tooth and enjoy the festive atmosphere without being mobbed by merry-makers.
