Disclosure: This post is sponsored Spring it On at Gaylord Palms, however, all opinions are my own.
Gaylord Palms has a lot of fun events throughout the year. We have been fortunate to go in the summer and fall, but this was our first time going in the Spring, and it was just as amazing as always! Emma Kate had a blast (ok, I did too!) and we already can’t wait to go back.
I wanted to give a quick run down of the special events and activities you can take part in for a limited time. You don’t want to miss it, the spring events end May 7th 2022! There are special Spring It On room packages, or you can add events as you go, like…
Journey Into Spring Escape Room
Amidst the bright hues of a dreamlike garden setting, participants work together to solve riddles, find hidden keys, and unlock the mysteries and secrets of the season.
Paint Me a Fairytale Interactive Show
Be drawn into the magic as Mother Goose herself paints to life some of your storybook favorites in this live stage show. Emma Kate loved singing along with this one and shouting out answers. Perfect for preschool and early elementary ages! We had fun talking about other fairytales after the show was over!
Springtime Cookie Decorating
Sweet springtime treats are ready to adorn and achieve confection perfection! The Easter Bunny will visit as you decorate delicious cookies and take them home to enjoy in this creative, interactive hands-on activity.
Blossomin’ Bunnies Scavenger Hunt
Eight rascally rabbits have bounced into the blossoms throughout the 4.5-acre garden atrium, and it’s up to super springtime sleuths to use clues to find where these hares have hidden! Emma Kate loved this one too. So much fun and a great way to explore the atriums. I also loved that they used stickers to put in the answers instead of having to carry around a pencil (which my child loses!)
Enjoy up-close encounters with Florida’s amazing animals to learn how they adapt to spring weather and interact with others indigenous animals in the wild. Presented by our wildlife partners from Wild Florida.
Whimsy and wonder are inspirations behind this home of colorful cocktails and multicolored mocktails. Enjoy a new menu of craft beverages, specially created by Gaylord Palms mixologists for this year’s springtime celebration.
Springtime Light Display
A kaleidoscope of color paints the atrium ceiling when the sun goes down, as newly upgraded and animated light curtains fill the sky with brightly blooming flowers, richly hued rabbits, springtime shooting stars, and other symbols of the season. This was so fun to see from our balcony! It was nice that it went on all evening so you didn’t have to worry about being back at a certain time or you “miss it!”
Larger-than-life Easter eggs and bouquets of blossoms highlight this themed walkthrough experience. Along the way, guests will find plenty of springtime photo spots for that perfect picture to share with friends and family. I love a good photo opp and this one was perfect. So colorful and fun!
Easter Bunny Meet & Greet
While you might not spot him as he’s delivering his eggs, the lovable Easter Bunny takes a break from preparing his famous egg hunt to take photos with guests on Easter Sunday. (certain hours.)
Adventure Kids: Bedtime Bunny Tales
Adventure Kid Sophie reads Beatrix Potter’s classic “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” for a very special bedtime story on your in-room TV. Enjoy the classic tale while Sophie adds some real-world knowledge about rabbits, plants, nature, and more.
Adventure Kids: Sprout into Spring
Young explorers are invited to join Seth the Sea Turtle, Ava the Alligator, and everyone’s favorite Adventure Kid, Sophie, on an interactive journey through the Gaylord Palms atrium to discover the wonders of the springtime season. We were able to see this from our balcony which was really cool!
There are also Easter and Mother’s Day dining options as well as spa treatments during Spring it On at Gaylord Palms! Don’t forget about year round resort activities like the pools and water park! You can even reserve chairs, daybeds, and cabanas in advance so you don’t have to rush down to the pool in the morning. Towels are also provided! You have to have ice cream after lunch by the pool, of course.
Spring it on at Gaylord Palms is a wonderful time to visit. Hurry before it ends! Let me know if you have any questions.
