Christmas in Florida
If Christmas is your favorite time of year but you don’t like the snow and the cold that we are all so familiar with in the middle and upper half of the country, then spending it in Florida is just right for you! And what better way to experience Christmas than at one of the top resorts and convention centers in the heart of the state.
Gaylord Palms Resort
Christmas at Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Kissimmee brings Christmas to life with their Indoor winter wonderland, vast Christmas light display, larger than life decorations and live attractions and events for the whole family.
Sitting right in the center of their main atrium is a 54ft tall lighted Christmas tree, one of the biggest you’ll find in the area with over 2 million twinkling lights strung throughout. Also featured in the main atrium is of course, Santa! Appearing at certain times throughout the day, adults and kids can come and visit with Santa and even get their pictures taken. The atrium at the resort also features live music for your enjoyment to lift your holiday spirit while taking in the colorful light display.
ICE! Is one of the most popular attractions at the Gaylord Palms Resort. It is the biggest indoor winter wonderland in the area and features 2 million pounds of hand carved ice sculptures…hand carved! The room is kept at a brisk 9 degrees to keep the sculptures in top shape throughout the holiday season. The ice sculptures feature scenes from the popular Nutcracker ballet, a life size Nativity scene, and even have a live ice carving exhibit in the Frostbite Factory.
New for 2014 is the ICE! Bar and lounge. Meant only for those 21 years of age and up, it’s a fun experience for you and your friends to enjoy. The bar has samplings daily of Johnny Appleseed sweet cider that are served via their very own ICE! Luge. Take a step back to your college days and sample the newest drink flavors with a little bit of fun.
We all know Florida weather is not exactly the best for the fun snow –based activities such as sledding, skiing and tubing. However, the Gaylord Palms resort has their very own snow tubing hills made with real snow for the whole family to enjoy! Challenge your family and friends to tubing races down the 8 side- by-side slides.
Doesn’t this sound like a place you want to be this Christmas season? It’s the perfect place to experience all the fun of Christmas activities and attractions without the cold weather! Even if you aren’t staying at the resort, you can still experience some of the attractions the resort has to offer.
