gaylord Head over HERE, use promo code ADPAGES and get 50% off ICE! tickets at the Gaylord Texan valid today, 11/21 and Sunday, 11/23 only. (Not valid Saturday 11/22). This is your last chance before this promo expires!

You can choose to pick up your tickets at will call or print at home. This 50% off is for the ICE! attraction only and doesn’t include any of the combo packages or add-ons. However, when I printed my ticket at home (paid $15 per adult ticket and $8.50 for kids  + fees and tax), there is a coupon on the ticket page valid for a “Play All Day Pass”.The pass is $40-$45 and includes Santa’s wild Workshop Snow Tubing, Gingy’s Gingerbread Kit, DreamWorks Scavenger Hunt, and Milk & Cookies w/ Mrs. Claus.

Tickets must be purchased online. Limit 10 per purchaser. $1.50 service charge added to each ticket.

Head over here to grab your tickets before they sell out!

Note: I went today and picked my tickets up at the will call window. I asked to add the tubing package and they were nice enough to honor the same ADPAGES discount at the window – I can’t promise it will work every time but it’s worth a shot to ask! :)
