Why take this tour?

Check out this video about “Christmas Is” a broadway style theater production where Radio City Musical Hall and the Rockettes meets the Nativity Story! Your children will be dazzled with acrobatics, sensational Christmas vocals, and powerful dance numbers, but in the end, the star of the show is unquestionably Jesus, our Emmanuel.

Prior to the show, we will discover the world-famous Jesus Film Project headquarters with a special student and family tour! At the Jesus Film Project Tour, visitors explore the many ways in which this iconic film has touched the lives of people all over the world over the past few decades. Through interactive exhibits and immersive displays, students can see firsthand the impact that the movie has had on millions of people's faith journeys. Learn how they adapt JESUS into new languages and get a look at the new digital tools helping missionaries share Jesus around the world. Kids will get to experiment with the dubbing and recording process for one of the films in real time. Hear remarkable stories about courageous believers and miraculous film screenings and come away inspired by how God is reaching everyone, everywhere with the good news of the gospel.

And on the first night, your family will enjoy an LED lighting display presented by Publix illuminating the gardens of the Central Florida Zoo featuring animals, sights, and sounds from Asia! The festival features dozens of larger-than-life, hand-crafted lanterns that are lit by thousands of LED lights, resulting in a gorgeous display of color, light and sound that celebrates traditional Asian lantern festivals.

Enjoy your stay at Drury Inn & Suites one of Orlando’s finest and most group-friendly hotels!
