The wonders of winter are celebrated at Gaylord Palms Resort with new activities designed to evoke the charm of the chilliest of seasons during the resort’s annual Winterfest celebration. Even though the temperatures in central Florida rarely make it feel like a frigid winter, Gaylord Palms guests can take part in arctic-inspired, family-friendly events from Jan. 7, 2022 through Feb. 27, 2022.

Here’s a look at the highlights:
A Wintertaining, Sleuthing Search
Snowy sleuths can put their heads together to solve polar puzzles throughout the Gaylord Palms 4.5-acre garden atrium in “Jack Frost’s Frigid Finds Scavenger Hunt.” Riddles and hints will be “winter-twined” to create fun activities for the whole family as participants try to find cryptic clues to Jack Frost’s frosty fun. Successful scavengers will receive a prize for their efforts. Tickets for Jack Frost’s Frigid Finds Scavenger Hunt are $12.99 and must be purchased online and in advance at

Florida’s Fauna
Guests can learn how the Sunshine State’s native animals contribute to the ecosystem during colder months with Winterfest’s Animal Encounters. Presented by Gaylord Palms’ wildlife partner, Wild Florida, these Animal Encounters in the Everglades atrium allow guests to get up-close to some of the Sunshine State’s native wildlife while learning how these amazing, indigenous animals adapt during wintertime.

Lighting Up the Winter Nights
When the evening falls upon Winterfest, the skies above the atrium burst in a kaleidoscope of color as newly upgraded light curtains – now featuring 53,000 animated pixels – suspended from the ceiling come to life in brilliant hues and animated scenes. Accompanied by a festive, seasonal soundtrack, winter-inspired imagery fills the sky as bright lights dance from one side of the atrium to the other in this complimentary nighttime show for guests.

Winter Wellness at Relâche Spa
The award-winning Relâche Spa is offering special “Winter Wellness” treatments with massages, facials and pedicure treatments featuring the benefits of eucalyptus, known for its antioxidants that promote relaxation and reduce pain.

Year-Round Fun in the Sun
In addition to the special events presented as part of Winterfest, Gaylord Palms guests can enjoy plenty of family-friendly activities, water park fun and one-of-a-kind environments during their visit. The resort features a lush, 4.5-acre atrium with indoor gardens and Florida wildlife, a delicious selection of restaurants and dining options. A highlight for any visit to Gaylord Palms is Cypress Springs Water Park. Open year-round, the water park features waterslides for adults and children, a dedicated kids’ water-themed playhouse, two heated pools and Crystal River Rapids – an action river attraction inspired by Florida’s spring-fed rivers that takes guests through twists and turns at more than three feet per second. Cypress Springs Water Park is an exclusive amenity for overnight guests at Gaylord Palms Resort.

Commitment to Clean
As the safety of its guests and STARS (employees) is of paramount importance, Winterfest activities have been created in accordance with Marriott’s “Commitment to Clean” program and with enhanced protocols. Events and activities will operate according to the latest local, state and federal legislation.
