Holidays are for family, friends and making memories. Whether it’s bundling up and spending a day walking through a winter wonderland, zipping down an icy hill or singing Christmas carols while enjoying cookies and milk, you’ll find it at Gaylord Palms Resort. Amid millions of holiday lights, elaborately decorated trees, seasonal cuisine and a sleigh-full of Christmas cheer, you and your loved ones will experience a Christmas to remember.

Close to home, but worlds apart

Located in Central Florida, just minutes from Orlando’s famous theme parks, Gaylord Palms is a perfect choice for families looking for a holiday getaway.

From Nov. 17, 2023 through Jan. 3, 2024, the resort transforms into a holiday haven with acres of décor, live entertainment and immersive activities for all ages.

ICE! featuring A Charlie Brown Christmas!™

The coolest attraction of all is ICE! featuring “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” This holiday spectacle, kept at a frosty 9 degrees, is hand-carved by skilled artisans from 2 million pounds of brightly colored ice.

In this one-of-a-kind retelling of the Christmas classic, guests will see Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Sally, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder, Peppermint Patty and all their friends come to life in scenes from the animated television special. See Snoopy’s doghouse, Lucy’s psychiatric booth, Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree and Linus reciting from the Bible, all carved from ice.

And there’s no need to pack coats (scarves, gloves and extra apparel are suggested for those who tend to get cold). Even though it’s chilly inside, Gaylord Palms provides parkas to keep guests toasty while they marvel at larger-than-life displays, take photos and wander through the one-of-a-kind, arctic attraction.

Entertainment for the whole family

Love a Broadway-style spectacle? An original Gaylord Hotels production, “Cirque: Spirit of Christmas,” features amazing acrobatics, feats of flexibility and high-flying stunts. Designed for the entire family to enjoy, the story centers around Noel, a child dismayed by the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Trying to recapture her lost love of the season, she is visited by spirits who bring back the true meaning of the season in energetic, dreamlike chapters.

A heartwarming story that soars through the air and sparkles with imagination, this 35-minute show will delight and dazzle with a riveting score, world-class contortionists, jugglers, trapeze artists and more.

Festive fun for all

With signature events like ICE! and the popular “Cirque: Spirit of Christmas” show, classic holiday activities including photos with Santa, and thrilling experiences like ice tubing, there’s something for everyone to enjoy during So. Much. Christmas. at Gaylord Palms Resort.

So. Much. Christmas.

After a festive day of memory making, unwind with a meal at MOOR or Villa de Flora before seeing the holidays light up the night at the #LIT Light Show. This dynamic, celebratory light show brings the fun of decorating the tree to life through thousands of dancing lights, culminating in a delightful and memorable tree lighting experience.
