Provided by Gaylord National Resort Christmas on The Potomac

Holiday cheer returns on Nov. 15 when Christmas on the Potomac opens. The Gaylord National Resort offers this holiday tradition open to both hotel guests and the public. Activities are available for all ages, including the incredibly popular ICE! indoor walk-through exhibit.

ICE!, presented by DEI, is exclusive to Gaylord hotels. The exhibit is famous for photos of those cozy blue parkas guests don before entering the colorful wonderland of sculptures, scenes, and slides. All of thosse are hand carved by artisans from Harbin, China. This year’s installation is bigger than ever. The 15,000 square foot “cold room” welcomes the classic holiday story, Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! featuring scenes from the heart-warming holiday tale.

Feast with the Grinch

The Grinch fans will have the opportunity to meet the star of the show at the resort’s Feast with The Grinch breakfast. Diners can enjoy a buffet of Who-ville inspired items, table-side visits with The Grinch and Max, plus special touches Dr. Seuss fans are sure to adore. There’s even a new adventure inviting kids to follow clues through the resort looking for riddles and puzzles dreamed up by The Grinch as he attempts to steal Christmas. In The Grinch’s Wonderful Awful Idea Scavenger Hunt, solving clues leads to a grand prize and a change of heart for The Grinch.

Christmas Village

Christmas Village is just a quick sleigh ride from the North Pole. Santa welcomes children to share their Christmas wishes and take souvenir photos. A long list of activities for children of all ages includes an all-new adventure even Santa’s reindeer will love. The new Reindeer Rush Ice Tubing Hill offers all the fun of sledding with the added speed of ice.

Winter Square

The new outdoor Winter Square overlooking the Potomac River will brighten holiday spirits with twinkling lights and festival decorations. You’ll find an outdoor Ice-Skating Rink and Tinsel Tavern, a new, over-the-top ugly sweater themed bar. Adult beverages and hot chocolate are also available at this warm and cozy outdoor space.

Garden Atrium

Inside the artfully lit Garden Atrium, revelers will be dazzled by the 55-foot suspended Starlight Christmas tree. The nightly Christmas Miracles laser, light and music show magically reminds us that miracles live in all of us if we believe. And believe we will when snow starts to fall indoors! The Garden Atrium is also home to Cirque Dreams Unwrapped. This spellbinding production of seasonal dreams combines breathtaking choreography, music and showmanship from around the world. This intimate extravaganza on the stage and in the air will have guests on their feet and at the edge of their seats.

The list of fun at Christmas on the Potomac is so long, even Santa will have to check twice to be sure not to miss a thing! Individual attraction tickets and flexible discount bundles including multiple attractions and experiences, along with hotel packages, are available on the resort’s website.
