Last week I was able to attend a preview event showcasing Christmas at Gaylord Palms. This is such a neat experience and a great way to get the whole family in the spirit of the season.
ICE! at Gaylord Palms
The most notable attraction is ICE! featuring A Charlie Brown Christmas. You will walk through 2 million pounds of hand-carved ice depicting how Charlie Brown rediscovers the true meaning of Christmas. You can even race your family down ice slides for some extra fun. For those over 21 year of age, you can upgrade your ICE! experience to include a visit to On the Blocks. At the end of ICE! you also get to see the most amazing nativity scene which is truly breathtaking.
HELPFUL TIP-even though they give you a parka to wear, I recommend wearing a jacket under the parka, hat, gloves and closed toed shoes. It is cold!
Cirque Dreams Unwrapped
Back again for another appearance is the Cirque Dreams stage show. This is a unique show located in the hotel and is complimentary based on first come, first served basis. Or you can upgrade to VIP seating. They offer shows twice a day Sunday-Thursday and three shows on Saturdays during the Christmas season. This show is amazing and worth seeing! I don't want to give the whole show away so here are just a few of my favorite parts.
Other attractions include Alpine Rush Snow Tubing, Snow Ball Toss, Build-A-Bear Workshop, Elf of the Shelf Scavenger Hunt, Gingerbread decorating center, photos with Santa, Mrs. Claus Christmas traditions story time sing-a-long, breakfast with Charlie Brown and friends and other fun activities.
Packages and Overnight Stays at Gaylord Palms
The best way to experience all of the excitement is to stay the night at the beautiful Gaylord Palms Hotel. Other dates are available in addition to the options listed below. Or you do not have to stay at Gaylord Palms to enjoy the fun activities. But I do recommend staying to experience the full attractions that the hotel offers. We were upgraded to an atrium view room with a balcony overlooking the wonderful Christmas light show. I highly recommend the atrium view rooms!
