I scream. You scream. We all scream for...ICE! at Gaylord National in National Harbor, MD. I cannot begin to tell you about all the fun we had. So, I'll just show you in pictures and video.

This year, ICE! allows you to take FREE pictures, using an interative, touch screen and send them to your email account.
I have to say, this year was waaaaayyyy more fun than last year's ICE! It may have something to do with the additional activities we took part in, but the atmosphere seemed a bit more inviting.
More detailed information can be found on my previous post found here. However, the one important piece of advice I would give anyone attending is to WEAR GLOVES! This will make your experience a lot more enjoyable in the ICE! attraction. Also, this is no cheap experience. If I'm being honest, you treat this as a special moment for you and your family. There are costs for everything– parking, food, other "experiences", pictures, etc. A lot of people are confused as to what is included. Please visit the Gaylord National website for more information.
I have had several people ask me about ICE! offline. As a blogger, this goes to show you that word-of-mouth marketing is just as important as online marketing. I was happy to share all the details and recommend everyone to try it at least once.
I can't wait to see next year's theme and possible additions to the festivities. Gaylord National is beautiful in general. Be sure to visit the hotel atrium to see the Christmas tree and all the wonderful lights on display.
We are definitely going back. In fact, it will be in a few weeks. I am so blessed to be able to afford my family the opportunity to visit ICE! I am grateful for the wonderful people at Gaylord National for allowing us to take part in media day. Your efforts did not go unnoticed. Thank you very much!!

My family and I received complimentary tickets to attend ICE!, Gingy's Gingerbread Decorating, and Ice-Skating thanks to Gaylord National. There was no monetary compensation for writing this post. The opinions and views are my own.
