It may be the middle of summer but that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning your winter holiday vacation. Orlando is a top Christmas vacation destination for a variety of reasons. Orlando theme parks like DisneyWorld and Universal Orlando host festive celebrations, shopping in Orlando is superb and if you’re looking for a delicious holiday meal one of Orlando’s restaurants is sure to serve up a feast to please the finest palate.
Of course, another highlight of the Orlando holiday season is ICE at Gaylord Palms. ICE is an award-winning tradition at Gaylord Palms Orlando FL, with over 20,000 square-feet of frosty 9-degrees creating an enchanting winter wonderland. This year’s ICE will have hand-carved ice sculptures paying tribute to the Dreamworks classic Merry Madagascar. Five 30-foot ice slides and beautiful Christmas decorations make the event one families are sure to love. ICE at Gaylord Palms takes place November 10, 2012, through January 1, 2013.
Classic Christmas elements can also be found at ICE. An arctic forest, Christmas carnival with life-size carousel, ornament room, reindeer and a very special nativity made completely of clear ice add to the event.
