When we lived in South Florida, we would travel each year to Tradewinds Park for the Holiday Fantasy of Lights display. For three miles, you rest comfortably in your car while driving through the park and the many incredible holiday light displays. Taking place nightly from 11/19 through 1/2/2011, this is a must see spectacle of holiday brilliance, and for only $13 per car ($10 Monday – Wednesday), you can save the time and the effort driving through endless neighborhoods trying to find the best decorated houses. Well worth the price of admission.
This year, Osceola Heritage Park is hosting their own version of a holiday light spectacular with the Wonderland of Lights. Running from 11/26 – 1/9/2011, this display is just about a 20 minute drive from Walt Disney World. This is the first year for this display, and it’s only a mile long, but the park is also going to offer ice skating, Santa’s Village, photos with Santa, and holiday movies. The cost at Osceola is $20 per car, but it sounds like it’s shaping up to become a wonderful Central Florida tradition!
