Review: Christmas at Gaylord Palms 2017 celebrates the holiday seasons with a wide variety of holiday fun for all

Grab your mittens, dust off that wool beanie, and bring your holiday cheer to the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center to celebrate the holiday season this year with everyone in your family for Christmas At Gaylord Palms!

The celebrated resort located right next to Walt Disney World in Kissimmee, Florida comes through again this year with fun and diverse shows and events celebrating how different cultures celebrate Christmas, including the famous ICE! spectacular, featuring jaw-dropping ice sculptures handmade out of two million pounds of ice inside the nine-degree holiday exhibit, as well as a new version of the incredible Cirque Dreams Unwrapped show as well as the JOYFUL Atrium Light Show.

ICE!, a truly amazing and unique exhibit, needs to be experienced to be believed with incredible ice creations all around — including a two-story slide made entirely of ice (like everything else).



We also had a blast throwing snowballs, enjoying a Christmas tale from Mrs. Claus and her amusing helper Snowflake while being served cookies and milk, and going on a scavenger hunt around the atrium and marveling at all the holiday decorations. In addition to gingerbread decorating, sipping hot cocoa, and everything else that Gaylord Palms has to offer year round, we needed a complete extra day to experience as much as possible.


The kids even got to mail their letters to Santa!

The next morning, one of our favorite events is first on the agenda – breakfast with the Peanuts gang! All-you-can-eat goodness is here in the form of Snoopy and Charlie Brown shaped pancakes as well as all the breakfast favorites: waffles, breads, roasted potatoes, cereals and even a made-to-order omelet station. Snoopy is there to greet as you walk in and Charlie Brown, Lucy and Linus pass by to mingle and pose for photos with everyone.
