Holiday Memories Await at Gaylord Palms ICE!

My family and I have been visiting Gaylord Palms ICE! as part of our holiday traditions since 2007, before I even wrote about it in Zannaland. It has really become one of the things my children most look forward to, and they ask every Fall  – “when does ICE! start?” …
