The Nutcracker is coming to Ice! from Nov. 15, 2014 – Jan. 4, 2015 as guests indulge in holiday merriment during Christmas at Gaylord Palms. Here’s a look at what’s planned:
Ice! Featuring The Nutcracker
Dreams of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Mouse King will come to life in a full-on frozen wonderland. On Nov. 15 scenes from the classic ballet, the Nutcracker, will be reimagined in nearly two million pounds of hand-carved ice sculptures. Ice! will feature four ice slides and live carving stations inside of the Artisans in Action Frostbite Factory.
Guests can now experience the rush of the newest experience during Christmas at Gaylord Palms. Alpine Rush Snow Tubing is an 18’ eight-lane giant snow hill created with 1.5 million pounds of “real Florida snow”. Children and adults of all ages will have fun as they speed down these snow covered hills.
The Christmas Experience
Christmas at Gaylord Palms is an experience that presents the true nature of the season all under a glass enclosed atrium, with lush gardens sprinkled with poinsettias, grand holiday displays and more than two million twinkling lights. Don’t forget the famous 54-foot-tall majestic Christmas tree, character dining and meet and greets, holiday dining, Cookies with Mrs. Claus and live entertainment, including the rhythmic Luminescence show.
Although day guests are welcome, the best way to experience Christmas at Gaylord Palms is to stay the night there. Packages are now on sale at ChristmasatGaylordPalms.com. Ice! is open daily from Nov. 15 to Jan. 4, 2015, including holidays. The Christmas experience begins Nov. 21, 2014. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to ChristmasatGaylordPalms.com.
