Celebrate the Holidays in Florida

Halloween is over, let the Christmas fun begin! You might not think Florida is the place for a wonderful Christmas vacation, but Florida does Christmas better than anywhere else and we don’t even need snow or the cold temperatures that come with it! I am getting ready for all the cool places to celebrate the holidays in Florida. What is my first stop? Walmart! Making sure my car is in tip top shape, the friendly people at my local Walmart Automotive Care Center along with Pennzoil® make sure I am all set to experience a Florida Holiday to remember. I am saving money too, because right now and until December 27th, oil changes with Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic are on Rollback ($49.88 Rollback to $44.88).

walmart-auto-cetnerI am so excited that Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee can now benefit from oil changes that use Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic. Did you know that Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology keeps pistons up to 20% cleaner than required by the toughest industry standard and keeps your engine cleaner than any leading synthetic oil? A cleaner engine means better performance to get you to where you want to go and makes your vehicle last longer.


Where to Celebrate the Holidays in Florida

I want to share my top five picks for where to experience Christmas in sunny Florida. I have been to Disney World, ICE! at Gaylord Palms, and SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration. Grinchmas and Christmas Town are part of my plans this Christmas season.

Walt Disney World. From extravagantly decorated resorts, Epcot’s Candlelight Processional, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, to Hollywood Studio’s brand new Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! show you are sure to catch the Christmas spirit at the happiest place on Earth. My frugal favorite is visiting the Gingerbread House at the Grand Floridianchristmas-at-disney-holidays-florida

ICE! at Gaylord Palms. Though we leave the cold temperatures to those states north of us, we have one experience here in Florida that makes us put on a parka. ICE! at Gaylord Palms is a beautiful walk through of a retelling of a favorite holiday story made completely of ice. The famous ice artists from China travel to Florida and work for months carving all the ice sculptures you see. Plus, they have live ice sculpting demonstrations so you can see the artists in action.



Grinchmas at Universal. Starting in December you can party with the people from Who-ville. Universal takes Dr. Seuss’ beloved tale of How the Grinch Stole Christmas and adds a little bit of snarkiness. I am excited to experience this for the first time. You can have a character breakfast, meet the Grinch and other Who-ville characters,  see a live retelling of the story, and experience other wintry touches!

SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration. I am such a huge fan of Disney World Fireworks, but SeaWorld’s fireworks for their Christmas Celebration knocks Disney out of the park. The Christmas Celebration is so much fun with special Christmas characters to see, a live nativity, ice skating show, dancing lighted Christmas trees, and fireworks! Please add this to your Florida Christmas vacation itinerary if it is not on it already.sea-world-christmas-florida

Christmas Town at Busch Gardens. Busch Gardens transforms into a holiday wonderland. Lights (over 2 million), music, and Christmas character greetings are all part of Christmas Town. New for this year you can meet Rudolph!

Money Saving Tips

  • Drop your vehicle off at the Walmart Automotive Care Center. Let the caring professionals know that you would like your oil changed with Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic, which has a special rollback price of just $44.88 (from $49.88) until December 27th,
  • Get to know your Walmart Automotive Professionals. I love my local store because I have gotten to know the employees,they have gotten to know me and my car. The personal care they take when servicing my car makes me feel at ease! walmart-customer-care
  • While you wait, grab some more savings by doing some Christmas shopping at Walmart. Walmart has everything you need for the holidays, plus with all the great deals you can even get something for yourself since you saved so much!walmart-christmas-store

I am going to go see ICE! and I simply can't wait! I've been wanting to do that for some time. I need to check my oil first. You reminded me!

I'm a white Christmas snow girl here in Virginia - but I'd give that up for a year for one of these cool places in Florida!
