Christmas displays and productions will be featured at the Holy Land Experience from Nov. 26 to Jan. 4.

Starting Nov. 26, guests at the Holy Land Experience biblical theme park in Orlando can learn about the life of Christ with Christmas-themed shows and displays throughout the park. The live Nativity scene and theatrical productions bring to life the religious reasons for the season through Jan. 4.

The theme park's signature musical, "The Heart of Christmas," returns to the park's 2,000-seat Church of All Nations Theatre and takes guests "back in time" to experience Christmases past. The production follows a pair of families from two very different times as they search for the true spirit of the Christmas season.

There are several live re-enactments of scenes from the story of the Nativity, including the angel Gabriel's initial visit to Mary, the mother of Jesus, and her subsequent visit with her cousin Elizabeth. Visitors will also see Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem prior to the birth of Jesus and view the shepherds and wise men traveling to the stable as well as the elderly Simeon realizing his long-held dream of beholding the Savior when Mary and Joseph brought the Christ child to the temple.

Additionally, through the end of the year, guests can opt for the Two Days, Any Day offer, which allows for 50% off a second-day ticket with the purchase of a one-day ticket.
