Moms have a big job in life and letting them know you appreciate what they do for you is important. When Mother’s Day rolls around this year, consider making more of the celebration by gifting the mom you love with a fun and inviting trip to Orlando, Florida! The following are just a few of the many reasons you’ll want to pack your suitcase and head this way in the name of fun over Mother’s Day in Orlando in 2023.
Don’t Overlook Disney Fun This Mother’s Day
A trip to Orlando over Mother’s Day is the ideal opportunity for visitors to treat their moms to time at Disney theme parks! Whether your mom is a super fan of Disney fun, is a kid at heart, or could simply use some time to unwind in a whimsical style, the options in Orlando are vast and varied across Disney Resort theme parks! While Magic Kingdom is always a treat and Animal Kingdom infuses a touch of the wild into a visit, you’ll want to be sure to keep in mind that over Mother’s Day, Epcot hosts their International Flower & Garden Festival which is well worth checking out. This is a fantastic annual festival to experience when you’re looking to savor the sights and sounds of spring over Mother’s Day. The park is brimming with beautiful topiaries to admire and there are ample options to enjoy beverages like lavender lemonade along the way. Guests who are looking to make the most of a convenient and comprehensive experience at the parks can book a specialty tour over Mother’s Day alongside a knowledgeable and friendly guide. When cravings come calling, Disney Resort theme parks are absolutely packed with options for palate-pleasing moments. With over 100 restaurants on-site, there’s no shortage of options when it’s time to make mom a special Mother’s Day dinner reservation. Whether she’s in the mood for local fare or something inspired by far-off destinations, you’re sure to find it here.
Stroll Through the Harry P. Leu Gardens
When some natural beauty and tranquility is exactly what your mom is looking to enjoy this Mother’s Day, don’t miss out on an opportunity to stroll through the Harry P. Leu Gardens when you’re in Orlando. Located at 1920 N. Forest Avenue, this 50-acre collection of tropical gardens, water features, and pathways is a great place to walk, admire the blooms, or take photos. Some of the trails here are shaded by oak trees that are over 200 years old, giving guests a feeling of stepping back in time. It’s well worth checking the event calendar at the gardens before your arrival as they often host fun and insightful events throughout the year too. The Harry P. Leu Gardens are open from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm daily, making it an easy addition to even the busiest of Mother’s Day itineraries.
Include a Spa Day into the Experience
Once in a while, the best way to let your mom know you appreciate all she does is to give her a day of pampering. When you’re in Orlando over Mother’s Day this year, make time to book a session for your mom where she can relax, unwind, and restore her mind and body in style. Orlando has a variety of spa options to choose from but when you’re looking for added luxury, consider booking her a Mother’s Day spa package at Disney’s Grand Floridian. Disney’s Saratoga Springs also has an impressive spa on-site where guests can book everything from customized massages and facials to wraps, exfoliating body scrubs, hot stone therapies, and beyond. Other area spas to consider during your Mother’s Day stay include Alora Health Spa, Vitality Wellness, and Sanctuary Salon & Med Spa just to name a few of many.
Check Out the Whimsical Attractions on International Drive
For Orlando-bound travelers who are heading to Central Florida with their mom who loves to try just about everything on the itinerary, spending a day exploring the many attractions along International Drive is a good idea! This area is filled with options for fun of all kinds and hosts everything from savory eateries and bars to one-of-a-kind museums and amusement-style stop to explore. When you make your way to International Drive, don’t miss out on places like Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, a Chocolate Factory tour, Lost Caverns Adventure Golf, or Ripley’s Believe It or Not! A stop at WonderWorks is another great opportunity to treat mom and the entire family to mind-bending fun when you’re in the area.
