Celebrate Mother's Day the Disney Way
Cue the magic.
Mother's Day is this Sunday. Are you ready?
While a box of chocolates, gift certificates, a bouquet of flowers, hand-crafted cards, and brunch mimosas are perfectly fine tokens of gratitude and much-appreciated indulgences, maybe it's time to try something a little different this year, like a mother-daughter day at Disney.
Mothers have done so much for us (and they always will), so she deserves something just as special as she is. Fortunately, the Most Magical Place on Earth knows how to celebrate special occasions better than anyone else. And this Mother's Day is no exception, as Disney Springs has rolled out the welcome mat, inviting your loved one to be their guest for pampering spa experiences, elegant dining and tea parties, and shopping excursions filled with jewelry and slippers fit for a princess or, in this case, worthy for the queen in your life. We're sure there's something here at the Magic Kingdom that she'll love and cherish!
