The artists’ work is truly amazing. Here’s an ice sculpture from A Charlie Brown Christmas that I enjoyed at ICE! three years ago. The ice sculptures are so colorful and true to life. It’s honestly hard to believe they are made from ice.

Ice Featuring Polar Express
If you are like me and simply love the heartwarming Polar Express movie, then this is you year to experience Ice Gaylord Palms. Use you imagination and join this young boy’s adventure on a mysterious train ride that’s bound to the North Pole where he learns of friendship, bravery and the true spirit of Christmas.
Experience this self-guided, walk through adventure through colorful life-sized, hand-carved sculptures and displays made from more than 2 million pounds of ice. Including a majestic Nativity scene at the end.
With that in mind, be aware that it is unbelievably cold in this exhibit. Colder than Florida ever sees. Like a single-digit cold. Don’t come wearing flip-flops, be sure to wear closed-toe shoes. Wear a coat, hat, gloves, the whole shebang. If you don’t, you won’t be able to take your time going through and enjoying the exhibit, instead you will be more concerned with frostbite. There are also five two-story ice slides make sure you are wearing long pants!
Parka rental is available, and they do come in multiple sizes. Touch screen sensitive gloves are best for taking pictures with you phone since you won’t want to remove you gloves. Also, be sure to bring Kleenex tissue the cold will instantly make you nose run. You can exit into an adjoining room to warm up if needed.
