Christmas at The Gaylord Palms + ICE!

Looking for a great Christmas activity to enjoy with the family this holiday season??
I've got the perfect one and all the details on what you need to know to make your trip a memorable one!!

Gaylord Palms Resort is your one-stop destination for all things, Christmas fun!

Thanks to Gaylord Palms Resort for having us for the media preview this week! We were grateful to join The Mommy Spot Tampa Bay for this exciting sneak peek of ICE! featuring Christmas Around the World and all the wonderful Christmas activities available in the Alpine Village!

Here's a look at all the fun that awaits:

Before we stepped into the icy 9 degrees, yes... you read that right- 9 degrees, we enjoyed a lovely show by the talented acrobats and dancers with Cirque Dreams Unwrapped! It was full of color and music and flying acrobats in the beautiful atrium of the Gaylord Palms! The boys loved it, especially the fun snowfall at the end!! :)

Following the show, we made it down to the Alpine Village, where we could throw snow balls, ride an indoor snow tube, and enjoy yummy donuts courtesy of Krispy Kreme!

And, did I mention we met Gingerbread cookies?? The boys loved them! A few of Charlie Brown's pals were also there, but they were stepping out for a cookie break, so hopefully you can catch them next time! Special visits with Mrs. Claus & the big man himself, Santa can be scheduled on your visit to Gaylord Palms Resort!

Onto the bone chilling 9 degrees!!! My Florida boys were game and we really enjoyed all the beautiful ice sculptures inside!!

**Important note: Bring your winter gloves, hats and extra layers! Although the wonderful staff provide parkas before entering, it was super helpful having a few layers on the boys underneath!

How about this amazing ice slide??

This year, Gaylord Palms & ICE! featured a new theme, Christmas around the world and it certainly did not disappoint! The entire exhibit is beautiful, freezing, but really beautiful! It's a must see for sure! Just don't forget those warm layers!! Hot Cocoa awaits you when you come out & lots of other activities too! A Build-A-Bear Workshop, Cookies with Mrs. Claus and even a chance to see Santa!

We had such a wonderful time visiting Gaylord Palms Resort! With so much to do, you'll have no trouble planning a fun day with the family for a Christmas experience you will remember for a long time!

Once again, a big thank you to Gaylord Palms Resort & The Mommy Spot Tampa Bay for having us to enjoy all the Christmas fun! 

Christmas at The Gaylord Palms & ICE! opens November 21st and will run until January 7th, 2018! For more information and tickets, visit
