Charlie Brown ice sculptures at Orlando-area hotel’s annual exhibit

An Orlando-area hotel will continue its sculpture series this year with a familiar Christmas character.

The Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center will bring “A Charlie Brown Christmas” to life for its annual ICE! series, which will kick off on November 17.

This year’s exhibit will feature the hotel’s signature, larger-than-life ice sculptures that have been made popular since 2003, when the resort began hosting the series.

“This dazzling, immersive, story-driven holiday showcase enchants guests with larger-than-life ice sculptures, thrilling frozen slides, a snow globe exhibit, and awe-inspiring tunnels,” reads a statement from the resort, which is located at 6000 W Osceola Parkway, in Kissimmee.

According to the resort, “skilled artisans” from Harbin, China sculpted over 2 million pounds of ice to create the exhibit, which runs through January 3, 2024.

During each walkthrough, guests are provided with large, insulated coats that keep them warm throughout the tour, as the room is kept at 9 degrees Fahrenheit in order to maintain the integrity of the sculptures.

The average walkthrough time for the exhibit is around 20 to 40 minutes, but the resort says there are “no time limits” for patrons.

Tickets for the event are $22.99 per child and $32.99 per adult. For more information on the event, or to purchase tickets, visit the Gaylord Palms ICE! event page.
