Close to all of Orlando’s attractions yet tucked away from the throngs of tourist crowds, many Florida residents have made this resort a part of their holiday tradition, taking in the annual ICE! exhibit as well as other Christmas-themed events.

With over 1400 guest rooms and 115 spacious suites, the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center is a destination in and of itself, with a sampling of everything that the Sunshine State has to offer.
