Pretend that you're in Rockerfeller Center with Light up UCF and enjoy the only outdoor skating rink in Orlando, holiday movies, music and a world-class holiday light show. 75,000 individual lights dance on the façade of the arena in perfect synchronization to holiday tracks using a "smart-lite" program. The choreographed holiday light show is free to enjoy and begins nightly at 6:30 p.m., continuing hourly through closing. Family and friends can gather around the 26-foot movie screen for a free viewing of classic and contemporary holiday films under the stars. Movies are screened at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on select nights during the event and free parking is available nearby.
