The Holidays Outside of Walt Disney World: Now Snowing-Celebration’s Winter Wonderland

This is how it looked in the past

A free holiday tradition takes place each year in the nearby town of Celebration, Florida. In past years, it’s been called Now Snowing Nightly. It featured “snow” (really snoap) on the hour each evening, plus ice skating, carolers, Santa, train rides, and more. This year, it’s been modified to Now Snowing-Celebration’s Winter Wonderland. It still sounds like it will be a lot of fun.

Instead of falling on the hour, the snoap will now take place at random times throughout the evening. This is to keep people from gathering on Market Street, where it takes place. The Celebration Express Train will still run for an additional cost. There will also be horse and carriage rides. Wagon rides will not take place this year. Santa won’t be there in person, but a virtual experience will be available.

Now Snowing-Celebration’s Winter Wonderland will take place nightly, weather permitting. It will run from November 28 through December 31. There is no cost to attend, although the various rides are for an additional charge. Parking in public lots is free as well, and there’s also street parking. Face masks are required, and it is asked that you follow the CDC guidelines. If you want to see snow without having to dig out your heavy coat, this could be the way to do it.
