    "Really fun Christmas event for the kids and adults"
    Really fun Christmas event for the kids, they aren't used to the warmth so the ice skating was a nice treat for them to show off their skills from back home! Our guide picked us up from our hotel and got us over there very smoothly and gave us some good suggestions on snacks in the area. He had gone to UCF so he had plenty of stories to tell to keep us entertained!

    This was a great winter festival, I have always loved Ferris Wheels and the ice skating was a ton of fun, the time flew by! I learned a ton of interesting things about the area and it was nice seeing all the families out enjoying Christmas fun!

    The driver was professional and friendly and conducted a very informative tour, everyone loved the chance to ice skate and go on the rides and get to know UCF and the surrounding area.
