The Polar Bears are coming to Central Florida! No, not real Polar Bears, those wild & crazy members of the Orlando Polar Bear Club will be visiting the Gaylord Palm’s ICE! attraction on December 4th. They will brave the 9-degree temperatures in nothing but their bathing suits! Participants will receive a certificate and club membership, as well as an ‘after-glow’ reception. And, they can come back later in the day, in warmer clothing, and enjoy the attraction at a leisurely pace. The special Polar Bear ticket is a discount for $19.99, and is good for the special early opening at 8:30am on December 4th. Best of all, it is for a great cause, benefiting the Children’s Miracle Network. The Polar Bear Motto? “When you start your day at 0 degrees, there’s no place to go but up.” So, feel free to “Grin and ‘Bear’ It” and join the Polar Bears to help raise money for this great charity.
