ICE At Gaylord Palms 2013

ICE show

It will soon once again be time for the ICE show, located in the giant Gaylord Palms resort in Kissimmee. For those who don’t know, each year Gaylord palms trucks in hundreds of tons of ice around the holidays.

The award-winning ICE! attraction is carved by a team of 40 artisans from Harbin, China. The talented artisans spend more than a month in Kissimmee/Orlando creating this one-of-a-kind attraction.

Harbin is best known for its annual International Ice and Snow Festival, where more than 2,000 sculptors annually carve a 100-acre walk-through ice park, using ice from the nearby Songhua River.

Additionally, Christmas at Gaylord Palms will provide dozens of lavish holiday displays with more than two million twinkling lights, an amazing 54-foot-tall Christmas tree, and exclusive holiday events and attractions for you and your entire family.

I have seen it for several years in a row now and it’s amazing. It does get down to 9 degrees, which is very cold! They do provide everyone with a long winter parka to wear. Closed toe shoes are required.

There is an admission fee but it’s well worth it. While your there check out the amazing “back end” area of the resort that will be all decorated up for the holidays. Check out the ICE at Gaylord Palms website here to learn more and purchase your tickets!
