The Gaylord Palms Has Mastered ICE Over The Years

For years, ICE has been brought to life in Florida through the exceptional craftsmanship of master ice sculptors originating from Harbin, China. Their scrupulous artistry transforms a staggering 6,700 blocks, each weighing a substantial 300 pounds, into intricate holiday scenes and characters, a process spanning approximately five weeks.

Beyond the delightful sculptures inspired by “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” ICE offers patrons ageless Christmas scenes and a captivating Carver’s Showcase, where live ice sculpting demonstrations take center stage.

Yet, ICE only forms a fraction of the holiday charm at Gaylord Palms. The festive lineup extends to encompass Christmas-themed entertainment, family-friendly activities for guests, an engaging escape room, melodious carolers, the creative pursuit of decorating gingerbread houses, the welcoming Bavarian Alpine Village shopping enclave, and the renowned “Cirque: Spirit of Christmas” performance.
