Once again, ICE is back at Gaylord Palm Resort in Kissimmee Florida thru January 3. Featuring ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, you will experience an unforgettable winter wonderland. This amazing showcase uses nearly 2 million pounds of ice, hand-carved into vibrant ice sculptures.
Plus make sure you look for the On the Blocks ICE bar. I had the best drink there which helped to warm my insides !
Also, guests can experience the adrenaline of Alpine Rush Snow Tubing – an 18’ 8-lane giant snow hill created with 1.5 million pounds of real Florida snow. This is SO MUCH fun. Kyle and I raced on the way down… I WON !
And don’t miss the all-new Cirque Dreams Unwrapped show at the Emerald Bay Stage. Be dazzled by an array of seasonal characters brought to life in a dreamscape of imaginative costumes and creativity, while stunning feats of showmanship are unwrapped, performed on stage and in the air, leaving audiences on the edge of their seats. The entire family can enjoy this uniquely inspired 25-minute Christmas dream presented with the Broadway style and inventive theatrics for which Cirque Dreams is renowned.

Plus new this year is the Elf on the Shelf® Scavenger Hunt which will ignite your inner sleuth and take you on a journey throughout the holiday-clad hotel. Participants will follow clues and scan the hotel to spot the 10 scout elves who have landed at Gaylord Palms. By solving puzzles and finding all of the elves, guests will reveal the elves’ names so they can report back to Santa. All families that complete the scavenger hunt will win a special prize.
Mr. and Mrs. Claus will also be a part of the festivities. Photos with Santa will take place in Santa’s Workshop located in Alpine Village and Mrs. Claus will be a part of the all-new Brunch with Mrs. Claus at the award-winning Villa de Flora. Alpine Village, the holiday attraction hub, will also feature the Gingerbread Decorating Corner presented by PEEPS ®, Snowy’s Snack Shack and holiday shopping galore.
