    yep :yes:

    I think it's very good and incredibly well done. I kinda cringe at the price though because there just isnt much OF it really for the money. Worth going to see once though!

    Fantastic photos Keith. Do they provide you with coats to wear as I imagine it would be very cold in there ?

    Open daily including holidays, hours vary.

    Who says the holidays in Florida are all about sunshine and palm trees? Prepare for the coolest winter on record as Gaylord Palms presents ICE!, a walk-through attraction hand-carved from nearly TWO MILLION pounds of ice.

    Explore a whimsical winter wonderland of larger-than-life, three-dimensional hand-carved ice monuments and sculptures, including fantastic frozen creations, slippery ice slides, and memorable holiday scenes. As for the chill, visitors are given oversized parkas to stay comfortable inside the attraction, which is kept at a blustery 9 degrees. In its sixth season, ICE! will reflect the theme "Santa's Arctic Blast," featuring several scenes that star "Jolly Cold Saint Nicholas" himself. One such scene is an oversized "Santa's lap" photo opportunity that's likely to be the most photographed element inside the attraction. Another guest favorite, the ICE! castle and slides, have been re-designed to celebrate Santa's Christmas Eve flight... reindeer and all.

    The attraction's signature scene, a life-size Nativity carved completely of crystal-clear ice, has been described as one of the most breathtaking depictions of the birth of Christ. Dramatic lighting and a stirring narrative track give guests an opportunity to pause and reflect on the story behind the season.

    It depends on which day you want to go....kids 4 - 12 are $9.99
    Adult tickets are $16.99 to $24.99

    It's a ten minute drive from DTD

    Keith ...were there other activities there when you went apart from the ice sculptures. I think I read that there were shows on previous years
