*This is a sponsored blog post. I was hosted by Gaylord Rockies in exchange for my honest review.*
This year we were honored to be hosted at Gaylord Rockies again for their third annual Christmas at Gaylord Rockies event and it was exceptional per usual. It was quite the experience with all the traditional outdoor fun with new additions that we very much enjoyed.
We stayed in the deluxe suite which was nothing short of amazing! A separate sleeping area, a pullout sofa, a breakfast nook, large shower, huge tub, and an amazing view of the LIGHTS display area! I fully recommend this room for larger families like ours.
The really cool addition to this trip that we didn’t experience last year was the outdoor heated pool! Which lets face it, with kids, this is is an amazing inexpensive option to enjoy. I mean who doesn’t want to swim in the middle of December, am I right?
We also enjoyed the Cirque Dreams show which was quite amazing! Juggling, balancing, beautiful outfits, acrobatics, double dutch jump roping and so many other amazing things! This was not offered last year and was great for all ages, as my fourteen year old nephew really enjoyed it too! It’s always nice to have options for the older children in the group.
Mission: Save Christmas featuring Elf was a favorite of the twins (age 6) and I recommend this activity for the younger members of the group. It was like walking through the movie and had lots of interactive areas the little ones enjoy.
While walking around we enjoyed adventuring down to Mistletoe Village for Auntie Anne’s pretzels, the gift shop and Build- A- Bear. The kids all saved their money and were really excited to spend it there on new companions. I also loved having the Starbucks options at the market as well as an area closer to the snow activities for those of us that need the caffeine!
The room service was a great option for the kids and so convenient. I loved all the options and being able to order things at various times throughout the stay. The market and eating options inside the resort can also be charged to your room if you’re wanting to get some snacks or meals while on the go and not walking around with your wallet.
Of course, we enjoyed the traditional fun of the outdoor activities as well! Snow tubing is a fun one for everyone and I love that this year they replaced the stairs with a walk up ramp. This made carrying the tubes up much easier. The snow merry go round and snow bumper cars were also enjoyable for the group. One addition to this outdoor area was the Snowdrift mini golf which again was an an enjoyable activity for kids and adults alike.
Overall, we had a blast, and really appreciate all the staff for accommodating us the week of Christmas. We are so grateful for all of their hard work. Thanks Gaylord Rockies for helping us create amazing family memories at such a beautiful location. I can’t wait to come back again next year!
