Happy Monday ya’ll! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! We spent the end of last week at Gaylord Palms and attended their Christmas event that just opened. If you followed my Instagram Stories you know we had SOOO much fun! It was the perfect way to kick off the holiday season! First off the resort is decorated so beautifully! If you have never been in a Gaylord resort you need to go! They are large atriums that are almost like a small town that make you feel like you are outside but not. There are also tons of restaurants, shops, bars, you name it! Gaylord goes all out for Christmas so it is beautiful to walk around the resort even if you are not attending the event. Although the Christmas event is basically pure Holiday magic!
This year there is a Snow Factory where you can enjoy the Snowball Build and Blast which you can build your own snowballs and throw them for points. This was Sawyer’s activity! He LOVED throwing the snowballs! They also have Snow Flow Mountain where you can go ice tubing! So cool! Other activities include gingerbread decorating (along with Characters! Nutmeg was Sawyer’s favorite!), Elf Training Academy, where you can paint your own ornament, and of course a meet and greet with Santa and Mrs Claus! You can also go on the Grinch’s Wonderful Awful Idea Scavenger Hunt or attend the Grinch Character Breakfast. Back in the St Augustine Atrium you can enjoy the #LIT light show, Cirque Dreams Unwrapped live performance, and The Greatest Story, which is a multicultural musical celebrating the story of Christ. But that’s not all! Debuting this year is their new I Love Christmas Movies! This is an interactive, multi sensory experience where guests can walk right on to live sets of their favorite Christmas Movies! Movies include POLAR EXPRESS™, A CHRISTMAS STORY™, ELF™, NATIONAL LAMPOONS CHRISTMAS VACATION™, and THE YEAR WITHOUT A SANTA CLAUS™. Our favorite was of course Christmas Vacation! They even had the dried out turkey! Haha! All in all we had the best time and would highly recommend the event if you are going to be in Orlando this holiday season! We already can’t wait to go back next year! <3
