We were invited as media to cover this event. No additional compensation was received. All opinions are my own.
The magic of the holiday season is upon us and Gaylord Palms Resort is celebrating in a BIG way! With ICE! featuring Frosty the Snowman. But that’s not all, the resort pulls out all the stops with more than 2 million twinkling lights, an amazing 54-foot-tall Christmas tree, captivating musical events, and exclusive holiday events and attractions, Gaylord Palms is like no other holiday destination.
We were invited for the unveiling of ICE! and enjoyed a first look at what to expect this year. There’s a NEW bonus area featuring “Artisans in Action” – a LIVE ice carving zone! Plus old favorites like the beautiful nativity scene pictured below.
The boys (especially my 2-year-old) was extremely happy to see his favorite character, Turbo, made of ice. L gave him a big hug. So sweet!
Join Frosty, everyone’s favorite snowman, and his friends on their quest to the North Pole in a colorfully frozen retelling of this original Christmas classic! Another old favorite is the slippery ice slides that are loads of fun for the entire family.
We also got a sneak peek of Luminescence, a high-energy stage show featuring special effects, dazzling lighting and aerial choreography, in Emerald Plaza.
If you’re looking for a family friendly event to attend this holiday season, ICE! at Gaylord is it! Come visit between now and January 5, 2014.

Wow! That looks like an awesome place to visit. I really like the blue coats.
How fun is this!! I want to take my son to a local train here that does the Polar Express. These are the kinds of things they’ll always remember!

We visited the Gaylord Palms last Christmas when we were on vacation and saw ICE! Madagascar. It was so much fun, even for my big kids! Afterwards we grabbed hot chocolate and walked around the hotel. We loved visiting Key West, the Everglades and St. Augustine without ever leaving the property. What a great property to explore!
This is just good family fun!

The Gaylord near me is doing The Nutcracker this year. I think if we had Frosty we might go see it.
Turbo, is one of my oldest son’s favorite characters too. He loved the picture you took of him.
