If you think it doesn’t get super cold in Florida … think again! Do you want to know where you can find a real winter wonderland among the Florida palm trees?

Christmas at The Gaylord Palms Resort  is the place to get your chilly holiday fix in Florida! This spectacular resort (located in Kissimmee, FL just a hour from Tampa) is transformed into a Christmas Wonderland with the return of ICE! featuring A Charlie Brown Christmas  and many family-friendly activities to enjoy at the resort!

Start your visit with a great light show featuring a new, 60-foot LED Christmas tree in the center of the resort’s atrium. After the light show, you have to catch a performance of Cirque Dreams Unwrapped, created exclusively for Gaylord Palms! The show will wow you with fun, holiday, acrobatic performances, and maybe you’ll even see a unique snowfall at the end.

Make your way down to the Alpine Village, and you can find something fun for everyone in the family. From Indoor Snow Tubing to the Gingerbread Decorating Corner, or the popular Elf on the Shelf Scavenger Hunt, you’ll find endless activities for the whole family before you brave the cold and walk through the amazing ice sculptures to the grand finale.

Dress warmly, because the chilly 9 degrees is just around the corner! Wear your long sleeves and bring those gloves and winter hats, but don’t worry about a heavy coat … before you enter, you’ll be lent a parka for touring the icy wonderland that recreates the classic scenes from A Charlie Brown Christmas, carved from 2 million pounds of ice!

This experience, is one you won’t want to miss! It’s cold … super cold, but the sculptures, and even the ice slide, are spectacular!

Once you’ve finished your icy stroll, you can warm up with a delicious cup of hot cocoa, and even catch story time with Ms. Claus to wrap up your visit with cookies and milk.

My family and I enjoyed this sneak preview so very much! We froze a tiny bit, but we left with warm hearts from watching our boy’s excitement over all the fun we found at ICE! If you plan a family outing this holiday season, I highly recommend you put Christmas at Gaylord Palms high on your Christmas wish list.

Christmas at Gaylord Palms will be open from November 18, 2016 through January 1, 2017, including holidays. Hop on over to ChristmasatGaylordPalms.com to buy your tickets and book packages at this wonderful resort!
