Merry Christmas from Theme Park Insider

Published: December 23, 2011 at 3:36 PM

As we head into the cold, snowy north to visit the in-laws for the next week, I'd like to take a moment to wish all Theme Park Insider readers a merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, kwazy Kwanzaa, a tip-top Tet, and a solemn, dignified Ramadan*. (*Obligatory Simpsons reference.) To further celebrate the moment, here are a few of the Christmas-wishes videos being sent out by top theme parks.

A Visit from St. Nicholas, from Disney Parks:

How the Grinch Stole Christmas, from Universal Studios Hollywood:

Santa forgets the SeaWorld animals:

Santa's elves on Alpengeist, from Busch Gardens Williamsburg:

Happy holidays, from Legoland California:

Merry Christmas, from Holiday World:

Remember, we begin Tokyo DisneySea week on Monday, and the annual Theme Park Insider tournament starts on January 4. And if you know (or are) a theme park fan who's getting a Kindle, iPad or Nook for Christmas, remember that Stories from a Theme Park Insider makes for a fun way to break in a new eReader on Christmas afternoon. :^)

Have fun watching the Disney parade on Christmas morning, and if you are visiting a park this weekend, don't sleep in, arrive super-early and don't forget that we always welcome Christmas theme-park-visit trip reports on the discussion board! Take care, and as always, thank you for reading Theme Park Insider.
