November visitors to the Villas at Regal Palms, rejoice! Our intrepid blog reporter tells us a big month is in store at SeaWorld Orlando. Our favorite water adventure park is rolling out a plethora of fun events for the penultimate month of 2018, including appearances by wild animal expert Jack Hanna, a craft beer festival and the annual SeaWorld Christmas celebration.

Hanna will make appearances at the park’s Nautilus Theater at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Nov. 3-4. In addition, the TV personality/author/conservationist will be part of an Up-Close Dining experience at Shamu Stadium at 5 p.m. on Nov. 3. Prices begin at $49 for the event, which includes a meet-and-greet with Hanna and a buffet dinner.

Featuring more than 100 drafts, including representatives from Florida breweries, the craft beer festival will be held Nov. 3-4 and 10-11. That’s plenty of brew to help you wash down an enticing array of food selections that will also be offered.

SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration will begin Nov. 17 and run on select dates through Dec. 31. Shows include “Shamu’s Christmas Miracles,” “Clyde and Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas,” “Elmo’s Christmas Wish,” “O Wondrous Night,” ”Winter Wonderland on Ice” and the Sea of Trees attraction.

Visitors will also get to have a photo opportunity with Santa Claus and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer characters.

The events are included in regular SeaWorld Orlando admission. Food and beverages are an extra cost, of course. SeaWorld has a variety of upgrades that include reserved seating to shows and events.
