You already can feel that Christmas is all around, in the air above Orlando, is not different, 400 feet (122m) to be exact. The Orlando Eye is glittered with holiday décor making International Drive even more jolly and bright. From skating to joyous tunes, riding in decorated capsules to flights with Santa.
At select times through Dec. 25, guests can ride with Santa in one of four holiday themed capsules, ranging from The Night Before Christmas, Gingerbread House, Winter Wonderland and Candy Canes.
The Eye has shifted to holiday color scheme in its exterior lights. The Eye will feature blue and white lighting to celebrate the last day of Hanukkah on Dec. 14.
Holiday capsule packages begin at $30, and include priority boarding and holiday music throughout the flight. Santa Claus ticket packages begin at $35 and include priority boarding, photo opportunities, a holiday cookie and a holiday story reading during the trip.
The fun doesn’t end after guests take their flight on the Orlando Eye, as I-Drive 360 has completely decked the center’s courtyard with a 20-feet Christmas tree, purple wreaths, string lighting, as well as an outdoor ice-skating rink and snow machines. Ice-skating rates begin at $10 (with advanced purchase of Orlando Eye admission) or $12 at the door. The cost includes 30 minutes of skate time and skate rentals.
