Gaylord Palms Atrium
We love to explore their 4.5 acres of indoor garden atriums. It is the perfect hotel for all weather. They have nine award-winning restaurants/bars, a world-class Relâche Spa, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Their convention center has over 500,000 sq ft of flexible meeting space.
Gaylord Palms Activities
This area is perfect for fun family photos and exploring. How adorable are these larger-than-life Easter eggs, flowers, and butterflies?
Blossomin’ Bunnies Scavenger Hunt
This scavenger hunt is a fun activity to do with your kids. Buy a book from the pool hunt and the clues take you across the resort as you look for bunnies all over the atrium. Don't forget to return to the pool area to claim your prize once you find all the bunnies.
Meeting Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny
Mr. Easter Bunny will meet guests inside the resort each Saturday from March 4-April 8 at 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. On Easter Sunday, April 9, the Easter Bunny will pose for photos at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., noon, 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. Mrs. Easter Bunny will also make special appearances on April 9, meeting guests at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., and 4 p.m.

Pirate's Treasure Escape Room
For a more involved challenge, guests can head to the Pirate’s Treasure Escape Room. As the story goes, a pirate named Emerald is the wife of Captain Hornswaggle. Emerald needs guests’ help to raid the captain’s quarters for treasure. Of course, this is an escape room, that’s accomplished by solving puzzles and playing games.

Watching the alligators is always a highlight of the trip. This time we also got to see them during their feeding time. It was crazy to see how well trained they are.
Gaylord Palms Water Park
Our family loves the water and at Cypress Springs Water Park, there is something for everyone. They have two pools, tons of water slides, and a not-so-lazy river that our entire family loves.
4.5 acres of Indoor Garden Atrium with gorgeous spring flowers
It is fun to see how every season they are able to transform the Atrium with new flowers. I loved seeing all the tulips.
