• Best Bets breaks down Universal Orlando's epic holiday celebration


    Holiday cheer is definitely in the air, along with a little chill in the temperatures, but nothing warms you up like having a good time and there are plenty of fun events going on this weekend.

    We start in Daytona Beach where the fifth annual A December to Remember brings a flurry of family fun and activities to the festive Daytona Beach Bandshell all month long. Enjoy visits by Santa, a holiday craft village and holiday sand trail, great tribute bands, a pet weekend, fireworks and more. A December to Remember kicks off Saturday with concert by Tom Petty Tribute band, The Wildflowers. Admission is free.

    Every year, the theme parks roll out their holiday events and traditions with maybe a little tweak here or an addition there, but you usually know what you’re going get. Well, if you are planning on visiting Universal Orlando this holiday season, you are in for some big surprises.

    We invited icFlorida’s attractions insider Shelley Caran to join us on Best Bets for an in-depth report on the updates and new additions to Universal Orlando's holiday celebration.
