ICE!, I Triple Dog Dare You to Go

Florida Orlando Travel

Now, this is serious! It’s that time of year again, Christmas at Gaylord Palms is back and just as cool as ever!  Each year, artisans from Harbin, China hand-carve scenes from holiday classics out of two million pounds of ice for the main attraction ICE! at Gaylord Palms. This year’s featured classic is the hilarious family tale, ‘A Christmas Story.’ I’ll be honest; it’s been awhile since seeing ‘A Christmas Story,’ so I rewatched it this week and I’m so glad…

Florida Life Orlando Travel
