Gaylord Palms Resort will attempt to set new GUINNESS WORLD RECORD during event sponsored by Experience Kissimmee
Gaylord Palms Resort will welcome couples to celebrate love and the classic, seasonal tradition of kissing under mistletoe during its Kiss-Story in the Making special event. The resort will seek the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for Most couples kissing under mistletoe in one location on December 7, 2017, at 8:15 p.m.
Sponsored by Experience Kissimmee, the area’s travel and tourism authority, Kiss-Story in the Making at Gaylord Palms will attempt to claim the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title in this smoochably-perfect KISSimmee location. “We are honored and excited to be a part of this memorable experience,” said DT Minich, President/CEO of Experience Kissimmee. “There’s no better place to set a kissing record than right here in Kissimmee, Florida!”
During what is certain to be a memorable and fun-filled evening, Kiss-Story in the Making will bring hundreds of couples together to lock lips under a fresh sprig of real mistletoe supplied by local floral designer Greenery Productions. All of this, which will be supervised by an official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicator, will take place beneath Gaylord Palms’ six-story Christmas tree in the grand St. Augustine atrium.
By partnering with Mentos, Kiss-Story in the Making will also offer participating couples the assurance of freshness when the time comes for that magical kiss. The refreshing taste of Mentos Chewy Mints will let everyone enjoy the kiss confidence offered by the freshest, hippest mints on the planet. “We are excited to be a part of this year’s holiday festivities at Gaylord Palms Resort,” said Sylvia Buxton, Marketing Vice President with Mentos maker Perfetti Van Melle. “The Mentos brand is all about fresh connections. Nowhere is that freshness more important than under the mistletoe.”
Each year during the holiday season, Gaylord Palms Resort welcomes guests to make memories with special holiday attractions. “Christmas at Gaylord Palms” has grown over the years from the singular, signature ICE! attraction to a full-blown holiday extravaganza offering a mix of live entertainment, character dining, and other winter-themed experiences and attractions that make the resort resemble a Christmassy theme park.
“Over the last 14 Christmases, this resort has welcomed millions from around the world to make memories during the season as they experienced our ICE! attraction and other holiday events,” said Johann Krieger, General Manager of Gaylord Palms. “There seemed no better time to host a Guinness World Records title attempt as we present ICE! featuring Christmas Around the World this year, making special memories for our guests and STARS (hotel staff) during this magical season.”
