Disney Vacation Guide: Spending Mother’s Day 2012 in Disney World

Many mothers have a difficult time watching some of Disney’s most popular animated films. This is because while they’re often easy to relate to, some of the mother characters in these films either meet an untimely death (Nemo’s mom and Bambi’s mom for example) while some are separated from their children for one reason or another (Aurora’s mother and Rapunzel’s mother) or they never appear in the film, but have been replaced by an evil stepmother.

But that doesn’t mean that Mom won’t have an amazing time in Disney World for Mother’s Day! In fact, Disney World is a wonderful place to celebrate the fact that you were blessed with the best mother in the world.

Here are a few ways to give mom the royal treatment in Epcot for Mother’s Day.

Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

It’s wonderful timing to have the International Flower & Garden Festival going on in Epcot at the same time as Mother’s Day. If Mom loves gardening, she will love nothing more than strolling through Epcot while the entire park is in full bloom. There are millions of flowers in the form of topiaries and other eye-catching arrangements. It’s like giving her the best bouquet in the world.

Mother’s Day Dining near Epcot

Head to the Swan Hotel for a special Mother’s Day dinner buffet at Garden Grove. The buffet will be available May 13 from 5pm-9:30pm and Disney Characters will be on hand to entertain until 10:30pm! Cost is $38.95 per adult and $17.95 per child. (If this interests you, we recommend calling 407-934-1609 asap to make your reservation!)

Treat Mom to a Spa Treatment at  Mandara Spa

If you’re planning on going to the Swan Hotel for dinner anyway, why not book her in for a bit of relaxation beforehand? The Mandara Spa at the Swan and Dolphin resort offers many indulgent treatments from an Elemis Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Facial to deep tissue massage and much, much more. She’ll never forget the effort you put into making her day so memorable.
