Gaylord National Resort presents “I love Christmas movies” exhibits from November 26 to December 31.

“This is our flagship experience,” Public Relations Director Patrice Clayton told the WTO. “‘I Love Christmas Movies’ is a guided experience that brings scenes from beloved classic holiday movies to life and allows visitors to truly interact with those scenes.”

The event will feature 13 different scenes from five beloved Christmas movies.

“We have a really good partnership with Warner Brothers, so we’ve been thinking and thinking about movies that really make people feel nostalgic… movies that really stick with people,” Clayton said. “Then we went through and picked out the best known and most iconic scenes from those movies.”

First, you will see scenes from “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” (1989).

“There is a scene outside the house from ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation’,” Clayton said. “Visitors can plug in the Christmas lights to light up the front of the house, just like Clark Griswold does in the iconic scene from the film. “

You will also discover the computer-animated gem “The Polar Express” (2004).

“Visitors can board the train, the windows make it look like you’re on the bandwagon, you’ll smell hot chocolate, it’s really cool and immersive,” Clayton said.

If you have a quirky family, prepare for nostalgia for “A Christmas Story” (1983).

“We have the leg lamp!” Clayton said. “You can go into the family kitchen where they have dinner and the dogs come in.… It’s so cool, very realistic and immersive.”

Fans of Will Ferrell will enjoy exhibits recreating magical scenes from “Elf” (2003).

“You start the attraction in our elf part,” Clayton said. “You start in Santa’s workshop at the North Pole, then you travel through the sugar cane forest. I don’t want to say too much, but it’s pretty cool. You will definitely feel like Buddy the Elf walking through.

Finally, fans of stop-motion animation will appreciate “The Year Without Santa Claus” (1974).

“You will see the Narwhal,” Clayton said. “[The Heat Miser] and Snow Miser will be there.

In addition to the exhibits, families can enjoy a range of snacks and activities.

“You can walk into the complex, walk around, buy food, watch the laser show that goes on each night, but if you want to see the real attractions… you need a ticket,” Clayton said. “We have 12 other attractions like bumper cars on ice, ice skating, ‘The Greatest Story’ stage show, Snowball Build & Blast. … Personally, I love ice tubes.

Gaylord National Resort is located at National Harbor in Fort Washington, Maryland.

“We will have on-site parking in our self-service parking lot,” Clayton said. “There is so much signage that you can see where to park. It’s basically right next to the hotel. Then you enter the hotel lobby, we will have maps showing people where to go. Of course, they’ll see the whole set when they enter. We are very happy to welcome everyone back.
