Once Santa has come and gone, there are still plenty of things to do in Florida on Christmas Day. While many businesses are traditionally closed on Christmas Day, others in the Sunshine State's tourist-driven economy carry on with business as usual. From historic museum attractions to full access amusement parks, there is plenty to do throughout Florida for tourists and locals alike. Better yet, these attractions traditionally see greatly reduced crowds on Christmas.

Walt Disney World

Once all of the presents have been opened, many families choose to top the day off with a visit to one of the happiest places on earth. Walt Disney World is just one of the many Florida attractions that open as usual on Christmas Day. The park is fully operational despite the holiday, with all restaurants and rides ready to serve eager guests. Many who choose to visit Walt Disney World on Christmas choose the holiday to do so because of the lack of crowds and because of Florida's mild, late December weather. As of August 2010, the cost of tickets to Walt Disney World was £48 for ages 3-9 and £53 for ages 10 and up. Children under 3 were free.
