Gaylord National Harbor is home to the annual holiday celebration, Christmas at Gaylord National. We seem to have turned this into an annual tradition for our family, and this year was no different. After hosting no holiday events in 2020, I was so happy to be back this year as their guest for a little Holiday cheer to kick off the season.

6. I Love Christmas Movies!
Oh my gosh this was my absolute favorite!! I am a sucker for all five of the featured films, and it felt like we got to go behind the scenes and walk through them. Experience favorite scenes from five beloved films, including: The Polar Express™, Elf™, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation™, A Christmas Story™, and The Year Without A Santa Claus™. Around every bend is a magical scene from each film.
We walked thru the Candy candy cane forest, met Heat Miser and lit up the Griswold’s house! If you love these classic movies, this is a must do event.
When the sun goes down and the atrium lights up be sure not to miss #LIT Light Show With laser lights, indoor snow and holiday music, it will certainly get you in the spirit of the season.
