What to do at Gaylord Palms Orlando
Begin your day with Charlie Brown and friends! This interactive character breakfast includes a delicious morning buffet with Peanuts-themed dishes, such as Charlie Brown’s Build-Your-Own-French-Toast Station with Snoopy’s Maple Syrup, Pig Pen’s Dirty Hash Browns, Lucy’s Flap Jacks and Woodstock’s Granola. Plus, your littlest family members will love meeting the Peanuts gang including Lucy, Snoopy and Charlie Brown.
The Charlie Brown breakfast has something for everyone from hot dishes to pastry favorites, and a cook-to-order omelet station!
Gaylord Palms ICE!
Next, make your way over to the indoor winter wonderland to experience ICE! It’s the only place in Orlando where you’ll experience 9 degree weather. Explore two million pounds of ice sculptures hand-carved by artisans, see a breath-taking Nativity scene carved from crystal-clear ice, and slide down 5 large ice slides!
Must-haves for ICE! include closed toe shoes, winter clothing like jackets and hats, and your phone or camera to capture the memories.
Gingerbread Decorating Corner
Warm up after ICE! at the nearby Gingerbread Decorating Corner! Choose a delectable gingerbread kit and let the kids decorate to their hearts’ content before visiting with a life-sized gingerbread man for heartwarming hugs and photo opportunities. We made a gingerbread house and 2 gingerbread cookies.
A family favorite, Alpine Village is a huge room filled with indoor winter activities like snow tubing, snow throwing, plus food and beverages too! Want to know what it’s like to snow tube in Florida? Check out this quick video below:
