I have never experienced the Ice Sculptures at the Gaylord Palms before. My wife and I decided this will be a yearly event. After we viewed and took pictures of the ice sculptures we walked throughout the facility. It is truly amazing. The Conventions center is so well organized, we decided that we would look into for an upcoming reunion.

I loved my experience with the Palms. The hotel is adorable. The rooms were renovated about 3 years back and the property overall is in great condition. The staff at the hotel are very helpful. It's enjoyable as a non-Disney guest or for a family. I think it's diversity in that respect is what sets it apart!

The atrium is beautiful and there's plenty to do and see. Multiple restaurants on site make it convenient to stay and play for a weekend. Visit at Christmas for a fun light show and other special events.

I am reviewing the hotel as a day visitor to see the ICE presentation, and am providing the PROS ands CONS of that visit. Pros: The artistry of the Chinese ice carvers is amazing. Their work makes one feel as if they have walked directly into the world of Charlie Brown during the Christmas holiday special. Larger than life characters,...
