Let's go spend the day at Gaylord Palms Resort


hi Everyone,
Let’s go spend the day at Gaylord Palms. You have heard of the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville right? this is the same hotel chain that connotes luxury and fun.
What makes this resort different from others in Florida it’s the amazing atrium, the lush  tropical designs, and the recreation of Florida landmarks from the San Marco Castillo to the Everglades.
This was build to resemble a turn of the century mansion similar to the one in Sarasota I forgot the name, the Ringling Circus mansion. It has a 4 1/2 acres garden that will keep you busy aahha and oooohing over. It does house real alligator which they have a feeding ceremony you can watch, similar to the Peabody ducks parade.
Gaylord palm offers everything from the little one to the adult, fine dining and casual dining, coffee shop, shopping, the best part it’s only 1 mile away from Disney.
Now how many hotels do you know have actual street signs which I will show you later. This going to be a 2 part posting due to the amount of pictures I took.
This resort is only 35 mtes away from my house, however when I come here it’s an all day affair there’s so much to do and see, or if you are like me, this is a getaway to do nothing for the day.

You enter through the lobby,



I got this pic from their site, I couldn’t get a good one that wasn’t blurry.

I still have 200 pics left it might be a 3 part post instead.  Let me know what your fav hotel or resort is?
Have a great day,
