Drop everything and make plans to attend Christmas at the Gaylord Palms this year! Here are our top 3 reasons to attend ICE this year!
Christmas is my favorite time of the year! The Christmas trees are going up, the change of the weather and all the special events around Orlando really get me into the spirit of the season! My favorite event of the year is ICE and Christmas at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando! The atrium resort completely changes into a winter wonderland of special events, shows, and Christmas spirit! Here are my top 3 reasons to make plans to attend ICE at the Gaylord Palms this year!
- ICE is being transformed into the blockbuster movie adaptation of A Christmas Story this year!
For the first time ever, The Gaylord Palms Resort will showcase a live action movie as the theme for ICE! The artisans from Harbin, China have been working day and night for weeks to transform millions of pounds of ice in 9 degrees to make the Christmas classic A Christmas Movie come to life! I got a chance to look in the tents last week and check out the progress and I will say, they are killing it! If you loved the movie as I do, then ICE should be on the top of your list to check out this year!
2. Old favorites will come back this year to bring the holiday season to life!
Old favorites like ICE, Snow Tubing, Snow Throw, Sounds of the Season Concert Series, Cirque Dreams Unwrapped and more will be returning this year to bring your Christmas experience to a new level! Families will come together to enjoy holiday fun from age 2 to 102! Join Mrs. Clause for Mrs. Clauses’ Christmas Tradition, this year with two times the show amounts due to the high demand! Head into the atrium for the Tree Lighting and catch an amazing performance of Cirque Dreams Unwrapped for some mind-blowing acts and fun!
3. New Experience will be added this year to really push this event to the next level!
New experiences will push Christmas at the Gaylord Palms to the next level this year! First off, Elf on the Shelf will come alive for this years brand new character brunch! Make sure you make a reservation for this brunch where guests can join Santa’s Official Scout Elves for a fun and festive character breakfast. Kids and adults will enjoy a delicious buffet spread complete with classic breakfast favorites and live cooking stations, enjoying special visits from Santa’s Official Scout Elves as they dine.
The all-new Secret Santa Scavenger Hunt will have families and friends enlisting in Santa’s Secret Service to decode some fun. Guests will utilize their very own Santa’s Secret Service Decoder Ring to decipher clues to become full-fledged members of Santa’s Secret Service. Only the most elite yuletide sleuths will be able to locate the unique Christmassy clues hidden throughout the resort’s atrium to break the code and earn a Santa’s Secret Service badge.
All ages will delight in the holiday hijinks inside the Naughty or Nice Escape Room, as mischievous Jack Frost has moved the names of “Nice” Gaylord guests onto the Naughty side of Santa’s delivery list! Guests will need to work together to follow the clues and solve the puzzles to secure a spot on the better side and avoid a stocking full of coal!
As you can see, ICE and Christmas at the Gaylord Palms will combine old favorites and new experiences to really put this event at the top of your list this Christmas season! The event will run from November 17th until January 6th! To learn more about the event, buy tickets and new Season Passes, and book an overnight stay, check out their website here!!!
