Activites at the Gaylord National's Christmas on the Potomac

There are plenty of activities to keep you family busy at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center.

ICE! featuring DreamWorks Shrek the Halls
I highly recommend getting tickets to see ICE! featuring DreamWorks Shrek the Halls.  Here is my review of the amazing display ICE.

DreamWorks Character Meet and Greet
While your are in the ICE tent get your tickets for DreamWorks Character meet and Greet (with Scavenger Hunt).  This a a great chance for you to meets some of your favorite DreamWorks Characters up close and personal.  The Rise of the Guardians Scavenger Hunt will take you on a fun adventure to find clues to help the Guardians ward of the Boogieman.  The scavenger hunt is a lot of fun. Younger children will need help from mom and dad, but it makes it a fun family adventure.

Join Shrek, Princess Fiona and Puss in Boots for a yummy feast.  Guest become an honorary Ogre or Ogress.We loved the yummy Shrek shaped waffles and the green chocolate fountain.  Plenty of food!

Gingy's Gingerbread Decorating
Make your own gingerbread house and when you are done meet Gingy.  You never know, you might be able to get him to dance like my kids did!

Brunch with Santa
Have a brunch buffet with Santa and tell Santa what you want for Christmas.

Potomac Express Train Rides
Kids can take a ride on a miniature train.

Indoor Snowfall
You don't have to bundle the kids up to watch the snowfall indoors.  The snow fall happens two times a night.  At the nightly tree lighting show at 6:30 pm and during the Brightest Star Fountain Show at 9:00 pm.  Both of these shows are held indoors and they are a must see while staying  at the Gaylord.
