If you’re looking for a truly unique getaway that will calm your soul and take you straight to your happy place, consider a stay at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida.
Our latest trip was one that we’ll never forget because there was literally excitement and fun activities for us to see and do the ENTIRE time we were there. Staying there was like getting away from the rat race and stepping into our own little area of paradise.
We had the opportunity to get a peek at what the Pirates and Princess Weekends are like at the Gaylord Palms, and they are epic! From now until March 7th on the weekends The Captain and his crew of notorious pirates have plundered the Florida Coast in search of The Princess’s priceless treasure.
They have made Gaylord Palms Resort their outpost, commandeering the resort’s Everglades swamp. Come swap tales with the crew, take the pirate oath, or become an honorary princess in this thrilling adventure for the whole family. This event has been purposely designed to respect social distancing and an enhanced Commitment to Clean program.
