Christmas at Gaylord Palms 2020 - I Love Christmas Movies

Now through January 3, 2021, the Gaylord Palms resort is hosting its annual Christmas at Gaylord Palms event, featuring live performances, a festive breakfast with the Grinch, gingerbread decorating and more.

Debuting at this year’s Christmas at Gaylord Palms is its marquee event: “I Love Christmas Movies.” This interactive, multi-sensory experience was developed in collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, and allows guests to step into the movies they know and love, including THE POLAR EXPRESS™, A CHRISTMAS STORY™, ELF™, NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION™, and THE YEAR WITHOUT A SANTA CLAUS™.

Designed with social distancing in mind, guests will navigate the 17,000 square foot exhibit and enjoy more than 13 scenes complete with replicas of film props, audio clips and more.

Also new this year is Snow Factory, a mechanized snowy play space with multiple attractions, including Snow Flow Mountain, where guests can slide through factory conveyor belts that have frozen solid and ride on tubes down a thrilling plummet slide or hilly ice coaster. Plus, the Snowball Build and Blast allows guests to build and toss real snowballs to boost the power of snowmaking machines.

Returning is the dazzling Cirque Dreams Unwrapped, one of my favorites, featuring stunning feats of showmanship performed on stage and in the air, along with the festive Christmas tree and light show, #LIT Light Show.

Plus guests can enjoy the Elf Training Academy, Gingerbread Decorating Corner, Photos with Santa by DEI, Mrs. Claus’ Christmas Traditions, The Grinch’s Wonderful Awful Idea Scavenger Hunt, a Sugary Sweet Storytime, and so much more.

All events are available as individual tickets starting at $11.99, and bundle ticket packages are available offering savings of 20%-40%.
