A Cool Way to Pop the Question

    By Kara Chalmers

    Planning to propose this holiday season? Here’s a very cool way to pop the question.

    Book the Proposal Package at Kissimmee's Gaylord Palms Resort, home to ICE!, an indoor winter wonderland kept at a chilly 9 degrees.

    This year, the ICE! attraction includes two million pounds of hand-carved ice sculptures that tell the story of ‘Twas the Night before Christmas. It offers several ways to propose – on the ice bridge over the ice pond, for example, or atop an ice slide before taking the plunge.

    The package costs $199 and includes:

    • Two adult tickets to ICE!, with priority entry
    • A photograph of the proposal taken by a resort staff photographer who will discreetly snap away at just the right moment.
    • A 2010 souvenir ICE! ornament

    But if you really want to splurge, for $450 you can get the ICE! Deluxe Proposal Package, which includes all of the above plus a special ice carving engraved with the message "Will You Marry Me?" to show to your sweetheart, as well as a CD full of photographs.

    To reserve either package, or for more information, call 407-586-0372, or visit www.gaylordhotels.com/gaylord-palms/best-of-florida-christmas.

    While at the resort, make sure to check out the ICE!-inspired spa treatments - as well as other spa deals - at the resort’s Relâche Spa. Get all the spa-related details here.
