Snow and Ice in Orlando | Entertainment
This year's ICE! is inspired by the classic tale 'Twas The Night Before Christmas. The story is told through carved ice. The attraction was carved by a team of 40 artisans from China. It took them more than a month to complete the project. It doesn't just involve carving, they also color the ice.
In order to keep the ice from melting, the temperature is kept at just nine-degrees inside. Gaylord Palms provides you with a parka for your wintery tour, but you should still dress warmly. They have parkas for kids, too. Closed-toe shoes and long pants are required for all. And hats and gloves are recommended.
A popular feature inside ICE! are the slides made out of ice. There's a small one and larger one for kids of all ages. This year, you can also play in SNOW! which Gaylord Palms describes as a North Pole Carnival.
Admission is required for both events. Pricing and other details are available here. The events run through January 2nd.
Cameras are allowed, but bring extra batteries. The cold will drain your batteries very quickly and the flash can act sluggishly.
