“Ice skating is the quintessential winter pastime and now you can enjoy it right here in Florida,” officials wrote on the park’s website. “Lace up your skates and get ready to glide across the ice under Florida’s sunny skies during the day and under our magical music & light show at night!”

At the all-new Crystal Ribbon attraction, guests will get the opportunity to skate on a ribbon-shaped rink or an oval-shaped area, which will be for beginners. A general admission ticket is required for all guests 2 years old and older. Guests will be able to bring their own ice skates or rent them all day for $9.95.

Located near the Snowy Slopes attraction at the park will be the all-new Eskimo Outpost.
