This Mother’s Day show mom how much you love her with some of Orlando’s best attractions, shows and shopping. Here is a quick guide of our seven favorite ways to pamper mom.
Epcot Flower & Garden Festival
Don’t just give mom a bouquet this Mother’s Day, give her a whole garden with a visit to the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival at Walt Disney World. Treat mom to Epcot’s annual celebration of spring and enjoy gorgeous gardens, dozens of Disney-themed topiaries, wildlife habitats and inspirational exhibits. Mom can also enjoy live concerts and specialty food items at the festival’s many Outdoor Kitchens. The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival runs now through May 28.
Clearwater Marine Aquarium
For a relaxing day under the sea, take your mom to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. See the rescue animals swim and play in the many aquarium viewing areas, and for an even more fun visit, take your mom on one of the behind-the-scenes tours to learn more about Clearwater Marine Aquarium’s efforts for animal conservation.
Orlando Balloon Rides
Mom sure could use a break from the hustle and bustle of motherhood. Why not let her float above the city in a hot air balloon ride on Orlando Balloon Rides? The morning starts off with a champagne toast before boarding the 11-story hot air balloon. Then mom is off in a serene trip high above the Orlando skyline for a peaceful and quiet morning.
Sleuth’s Mystery Dinner Show
If mom likes a little mystery in her life treat her to dinner and a show at Sleuth’s Mystery Dinner Show. Mom will enjoy a three-course meal she didn’t have to prepare while putting her investigative skills to the test.
The Wheel at ICON Park
Elevate Mother’s Day with a ride on The Wheel at ICON Park. Rotating 400-feet above the ground, the attraction offers some of the best views of downtown Orlando. Plus, each capsule is air-conditioned and equipped with an Apple iPad Air tablet, allowing mom to learn more about the history of the surrounding landmarks.
VIP Shop & Dine
Pamper mom with a day of shopping with the VIP Shop & Dine 4 Less Card. The card lets mom shop at some of Orlando’s most unique shopping destinations as well as dine at the city’s best restaurants.
Sometimes mom just has to get away and what better place than St. Augustine? The nation’s oldest settlement is also one of the most charming cities in the state. Famous for its Spanish colonial buildings and 19th-century architecture, St. Augustine has many sites to explore and with the St. Augustine Tour with Scenic Cruise mom will get to see all of them on board a historical cruise ship.
