Bring Your Kiddos to Sesame Street Kids’ Weekend in Orlando

When you’re looking for a fun-for-all getaway destination, there’s no better place to find yourself than vibrant Orlando, Florida. If your plans have you adventuring toward Florida with the kids included in your traveling crew, you’ll want to make sure you drop by when Sesame Street Kids’ Weekend in Orlando is in full swing. Hosted at SeaWorld each year, this annual event is one-of-a-kind and one you simply won’t want to miss.

Enjoy a Weekend in Orlando of Fun Each January

A January trip to Orlando is a fun way to ring in a new year. It’s also the right time to make the most of the Sesame Street Kids’ Weekend at SeaWorld Orlando. This inviting and exciting event is hosted at the end of the month and is a full weekend dedicated to themed Sesame Street activities, amazing performances, and character meet-and-greets too. While the event is created to thrill children, it’s likely that everyone in your group, including the adults will find something that inspires. There are hands-on activity stations to check out and plenty of places to stop and grab photos so you can remember the fun long after you’ve left Orlando and returned home. When you purchase a general admission ticket to SeaWorld during this time of year, the Sesame Street Kids’ Weekend activities are all included in the cost.

What to Expect During Your Weekend of Sesame Street Adventure

The concept behind Sesame Street Kids’ Weekend at SeaWorld is always to foster a sense of community and provide guests with activities and performances that focus on being thoughtful, kind, and helpful to one another. It’s ultimately a developmental learning experience for kids that provides hands-on learning around the concepts of giving and sharing. A highlight that’s highly anticipated each year is the chance for young guests to enjoy a story time with Big Bird. Kids are invited to step into Big Bird’s nest as he reads some of his favorite stories and those moments that have only been seen on television suddenly become real! Storytime is held at designated times throughout each day of the weekend fun, so you’ll want to be sure you check in on the calendar to enjoy at least one session while you’re here.

The Sesame Street Party Parade is another exciting event held during the Sesame Street Kid’s Weekend in Orlando. Those who attend will enjoy award-winning performances at select times throughout this special weekend. Spectators will find it hard to resist dancing and singing along as characters like Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch make their way through Sesame Street Land on beautiful and colorful floats. It’s a big concert and dance party that’s fun for the entire family and full of energy!

Oscar’s Trash Can Activity is another must-try during your Sesame Street Kids’ Weekend visit. This is a craft-based activity that’s as fun as it is innovative and certainly Oscar the Grouch-approved. Kids can come over to the workspace and use discarded materials to repurpose them into a creative work of art. It’s an activity that’s engaging and also a good look at how recycling works, and how important conservation and environmental protection are too. All of these concepts are part of SeaWorld Orlando’s overriding mission and are infused into the activities seamlessly for guests during this fun weekend.

A trip to Sesame Street Kids’ Weekend in Orlando is also a chance for guests to make the most of fun character meet-and-greets. Little ones can get their photo taken with Baby Bear who teaches lessons on caring, adventure, and bravery. Snapping a picture with Honker and Dinger is sure to delight while fan-favorites like Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, Rosita, and Elmo will also be on-hand to meet with guests and take great pictures too.

As you move through the various stations, activities, and attractions that make up Sesame Street Kids’ Weekend, your little ones have the opportunity to earn Hero Badges as proof of the great traits they’re learning about and possess. Badges are earned for courage, kindness, patience, and beyond! Earning badges leads to being qualified to become a part of the Everyday Heroes Club. The program is designed to motivate and inspire little ones. The program also provides opportunities for guests to meet with local Orange County Fire and Rescue professionals as well as the local Sheriff’s Office department members to learn what first responders and community safety professionals do.
