It’s not even the middle of summer, but Universal Orlando has already set November 13 as the opening date for its 2021 Holiday Celebrations.
Celebrating the 4th of July in Central Florida marks a high point in summer festivities, and after a year with few fireworks and celebrations due to the pandemic, 2021 is shaping up to be a great year for July 4th weekend events.
Since July 4th falls on a Sunday this year, events run throughout the weekend across Central Florida, and I’ve sifted through all the listings to find you the best ones.
Here are our picks for where to celebrate 2021’s Fourth of July holiday in the Orlando area:
Today, Congress passed legislation that was signed by President Biden establishing Juneteenth as a new federal holiday, and there are several events happening in the Orlando area this weekend in honor of the day.
It’s almost Mother’s Day, and 2021 is starting to look a lot better than last year for celebrating your mom/mother figure.
Many restaurants and attractions are back open, and offering special deals or dinners/brunches to enjoy. Plus, a lot of people are getting vaccinated, making it safer to spend time together.
I’ve perused all the listings and press emails, and here are CitySurfing Orlando’s picks for celebrating moms on Mother’s Day, May 9, 2021. All prices do not include tax or gratuity (please don’t forget to tip!). Under the restaurant list are some fun events happening to enjoy with mom, too.
It’s been four years since The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios last lit up the park, but I thought this Christmas was a great time to take a look back at what was my favorite holiday event at Walt Disney World.
We’re almost there…the end of 2020…and I know we all want to blow the doors off kicking this year gone this New Year’s Eve. But we’re also still in the pandemic, so we have to be careful about crowds and make sure we wear our masks.
If you choose to celebrate this New Year’s Eve outside of your house, do it safely, and perhaps at one of these picks which are either outdoors, limited capacity dinners and events, or take home dinner packages (prices do not include tax or gratuities):
We’re almost to the end of 2020 and Christmas is almost upon us. But with the pandemic affecting all of us, gatherings need to be smaller and safer.
If you’d like to eat out in a small group, or order for take-out to have at home, here are our picks for enjoying your Christmas dinner.
Please note: all take-out orders need to be pre-ordered for pick-up before the holiday, and many have deadlines as noted. Due to limited seating, reservations are recommended for in-person dining. Prices do not include taxes or gratuity.

The winter holiday season in Orlando is usually full of festivals and events celebrating Christmas and other holidays, but with the pandemic, the 2020 holiday season looks very different.

From ongoing events to limited time events, here are my picks for holiday events to enjoy this season:
