The Gaylord Hotels are well known for their winter escapade, ICE. Each hotel –the Palms in Orlando, Opryland in Nashville, National in DC and Texan in Dallas– chill out to a frigid 9°F and bring in world renowned ice carvers from China to create a winter wonderland worth planning your holiday festivities around. Earlier this year Gaylord Hotels and Dreamworks announced an alliance which would bring a family friendly aspect to the hotel brand year round. The “kick off” event for this alliance is ICE.
ICE at Gaylord Palms
I am thrilled to say that my girls and I (along with their grandmother) will be leaving frigid Iowa in 10 days, catching a flight to Florida and experiencing… snow and ICE. It seems wrong on so many levels, but I am thrilled to have this opportunity. My girls don’t know- it’s a surprise! While at the Gaylord Palms we will
- play in Awesome Snow with Kung Fu Panda
- decorate gingerbread with Gingy
- experience ICE ‘Shrek the Halls’
- enjoy the new Puss In Boots movie
- meet our favorite Dreamworks characters at ShrekFeast
It’s sure to be a memorable time; I can’t wait to share what will surely be magical tales!
Enjoy Your Own Magical Getaway at Gaylord Hotels
All four Gaylord Hotels host ICE events. At the Palms and Texan you’ll find ICE ‘Shrek the Halls’ while the Opryland and National are celebrating with ICE ‘Merry Madagascar’. Each hotel seems to have similar events going on, as well as a few special to that hotel.
Each hotel has specially priced packages that include your room, tickets to ICE, a character breakfast, character meet& greet, scavenger hunt and souvenir photo. What a fun family getaway to kick off your holiday season- or for a Christmas gift the entire family will remember for years!
