Even though it’s July, Christmas at Gaylord Palms is just around the corner!
Christmas comes early here in Orlando and yesterday was no exception as the Gaylord Palms released their details on the 2016 Christmas At Gaylord Palms. During a media release party several announcements were made that will bring the 2016 season to a whole new level and I am excited to tell you a little about all of them!
First off, the iconic tree from years past has moved on at the Gaylord Palms in exchange for a brand new 60 foot LED tree! This tree, which will stand over the courtyard will dance to music and be the focal point for Christmas at Gaylord Palms.
The theme of ICE! for 2016 will feature A Charlie Brown Christmas by Charles Schulz. Watch Charlie Brown rediscover the true meaning of Christmas as the beloved classic story unfolds through interactive ice sculptures and displays. Experience the Peanuts gang in iconic scenes such as their holiday play rehearsal, Snoopy’s decorated doghouse and Charlie Brown choosing the perfect Christmas tree. Everything hand-carved from 2 million pounds of ice!
Alpine Rush is back this year along with Cosmic Snow Tubing and the all new Down with the Decades. Guests will be able to zoom down an eight-lane tubing hill that’s fun for all ages and covered in real snow. Cosmic tubing turns up the fun with flashing LED lights and high-spirited holiday music while Down with the Decades blasts popular music from past decades!
Also new this year is Mrs. Claus’ Holiday Traditions and Santa’s Snow Throw. Mrs. Claus’ Holiday Traditions is a storytime and sing-along where guests can cozy around the jolliest hostess of all time, delight in the reading of holiday classic stories and sing carols during this 30-minute interactive show. This show is complete with Mrs. Claus’ world-famous cookies and a glass of cold milk. Santa’s Snow Throw is as fun as it sounds. Guests are invited to show off their pitching prowess by tossing real snowballs at a variety of targets.
Lastly, Cirque Dreams returns to Christmas at Gaylord Palms in a bigger and better production of strength, agility, and wonder! We had the chance to see a preview of the finale of the new show and the entire audience was captivated at the grace and skill of the performers. This year, witness a child’s dream come true and the wonder of Santa Clause come to life before your eyes!
