the pleasure of the senses at Gaylord Palms FL Mar 21, 2011
This is a place to stay if you have time to enjoy their ammenities, have dinner at the different restaurants or a drink at the bar.

Their Spa is also highly reccomended even if worth!

The rooms with view to a wonderful court with an amazing landscape...make you wish to spend the night seated at the balcony!

ICE!! Dec 13, 2008
The ICE exhibit is located at the Gaylord Palms Resort Convention Center. You can buy your tickets online or at the door. Save yourself five dollars and do it online. Make sure you get your discount parking ticket at the entrance of ICE. If you eat in the hotel get your recipet validated and parking is free.

Who says the holidays in Florida are all about sunshine and palm trees? Prepare for the coolest winter on record as Gaylord Palms presents ICE!, a walk-through attraction hand-carved from nearly TWO MILLION pounds of ice.

Explore a whimsical winter wonderland of larger-than-life, three-dimensional hand-carved ice monuments and sculptures, including fantastic frozen creations, slippery ice slides, and memorable holiday scenes. As for the chill, visitors are given oversized parkas to stay comfortable inside the attraction, which is kept at a blustery 9 degrees. In its sixth season, ICE! will reflect the theme "Santa's Arctic Blast," featuring several scenes that star "Jolly Cold Saint Nicholas" himself. One such scene is an oversized "Santa's knee" photo opportunity that's likely to be the most photographed element inside the attraction. Another guest favorite, the ICE! castle and slides, have been re-designed to celebrate Santa's Christmas Eve flight... reindeer and all.

The attraction's signature scene, a life-size Nativity carved completely of crystal-clear ice, has been described as one of the most breathtaking depictions of the birth of Christ. Dramatic lighting and a stirring narrative track give guests an opportunity to pause and reflect on the story behind the season.

The attraction is carved by a team of 40 artisans from Harbin, China. The talented artisans spend more than a month in Kissimmee creating this one-of-a-kind attraction. Harbin is best known for its annual International Ice and Snow Festival, where more than 2,000 sculptors annually carve a 100-acre walk-through Ice Park from ice taken from the Songhua River.

Fabulous indulgance! Apr 16, 2006
The first time I walked into the Gaylord Palms was for a wedding photography assignment, to check out lighting, possible shots, etc. I was so amazed by the scenery IN the hotel (yes, SCENERY *in* the hotel), that after said wedding assignment I booked my own romantic night in one of the rooms for me and my hubby.

Admittedly, the place is expensive. Very expensive. It's a little out of the way, as far tourist attractions go. But it is a good value for what you pay. (for example, a room at the Peabody on I-drive costs the same and the rooms are not nearly as big or comfy). The rooms are gorgeous, with big plush beds and huge stone tiled showers. The "inner" rooms are more expensive, but I preferred the "outer" room looking out on the property.

But really, the reason anyone would come to stay/have a wedding at the Gayord Palms is the scenery! The inner atrium of the hotel is divided into different "areas" depicting different areas of Florida. I'm not talking cheesy here, I'm talking full-sized steamy mangroves, giving off the humid swamp feel, a boat plunked down in a pool, a Spanish-style "fort", waterfalls, flowers... You feel like you're outside in swamp-land/the Keys/St. Augustine, etc. But (a photographer's dream), you're inside the huge atrium of this hotel.

They also have several restaurants in the hotel, one being a buffet, and a cafe/snack bar.

I would definitely recommend it for a honeymoon or romantic getaway, over similarly priced hotels in the area.
