Just like decorating gingerbread houses and hanging twinkling lights, attending The Nutcracker is a treasured holiday tradition. The whimsical story, enchanting score, and relatively short length make it the perfect ballet for families to enjoy together. While on vacation in Orlando, you can enjoy several performances of The Nutcracker along with special events that will make your holiday experience even more memorable.
Catch Orlando Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker at the Walt Disney Theater at the Dr. Phillips Center. With performances December 7 – 16, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to enjoy this holiday show in Orlando. There is also a family show, ideal for those with young children, on December 15 at 11 a.m. To make your trip to the ballet extra special, purchase tickets for the nutcracker tea on Saturday December 15. The tea lasts from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. so you can either attend after family show or before the 3 p.m. performance. At the tea you’ll enjoy holiday eats and treats, gift shopping, as well as a chance to meet and great several dancers and characters from the show.
Central Florida Ballet
For a Nutcracker performance shimmering with holiday magic, attend Central Florida Ballet’s performance at the Orange County Convention Center on December 15 – 16. This production of The Nutcracker fully embraces Central Florida’s love of theme parks and uses a variety of dazzling effects and aerial arts throughout the show, earning it the nickname “pyrotechnic Nutcracker.” Before the show, enter the nutcracker raffle and silent auction in the lobby where you can win special gifts donated by local business and organizations, including Walt Disney World, the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and many more.
Rosen Inn International’s I-Drive location makes it easy to explore Orlando’s many holiday events. With both the I-4 ramp to downtown Orlando and the Orange County Convention Center just minutes away, you’ll be at The Nutcracker in no time. Our on-site buffet with a Kids Eat Free program, heated swimming pools, and playground are just a few of the family-friendly amenities you’ll enjoy this holiday season.
