One of my family’s favorite holiday traditions is visiting the Gaylord ICE exhibit. 2020 is no exception with the Gaylord Palms Orlando planning ICE! at Gaylord Palms featuring The Polar Express. Check out what is happening at the Gaylord Texan Christmas 2020 on Kids Activities Blog as well!
Polar Express ICE at Gaylord Palms in Orlando 2020
The Polar Express Ice exhibit at Gaylord Palms promises to be exciting. It is a self-guided walk through that lasts around a half an hour. The entire experience took my family last time we went to ICE! a little over an hour. First, we went through the ICE exhibit after putting on the provided coats (you need the coats!) because it is kept at 9 degrees F. That is a stark contrast to whatever Florida outdoors might be! It is all to keep the 2 million pounds of ice sculptures cold in the hall.
Orlando Gaylord Palms also has a separate area dedicated to the majestic Nativity in crystal-clear ice.
Charlie Brown Christmas ICE at Gaylord Palms 2016
In 2016, we went to the Charlie Brown ICE exhibit. This was our experience…
It’s Christmas time in Orlando, Florida and I am walking through a life sized ice display loaded with iconic Charles Schulz characters. Snoopy, Linus, Lucy and Charlie Brown have all materialized out of two million pounds of frozen water and have taken up residence at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Central Florida where it may be 80 degrees outside but inside ICE! it’s a frigid nine degrees!
Come along as we explore this art exhibit and watch Charlie Brown uncover the true meaning of Christmas….
As this classic story unfolds, guests will have a chance to expereince some interactive elements of the ice display including these ice slides…
As well as the “One the Blocks” ice bar for those guests 21 and older.
You even have the opportunity to watch the ice artisans from Harbin, China carving live!
This entire experience happened at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando, Florida as part of the “Christmas at Gaylord Palms” offerings.
