Here in Kissimmee, we celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May, which means it’s right around the corner. So, what is mom getting this year? Sure, flowers are nice and chocolates are sweet, but a vacation to Kissimmee can’t be beat—especially if it’s a mother-daughter weekend getaway!
You two have been counting down the weeks and striking the days off the calendar. It’s time! Pack your bags, say goodbye to the rest of the family, and get ready for the ultimate mother-daughter adventure in Kissimmee.
Friday, 5:00 p.m.: Once you arrive you’ll be pretty hungry, so kick your vacation off with a dinner fit for a Queen at Medieval Times. We mean this literally, as you’ll dine alongside Queen Maria Isabella and her royal court while watching knights compete to become a champion. You and your daughter will be thrilled by the non-stop action while enjoying the Queen’s favorite meal. And if you’re a vegetarian, don’t worry, the royal chefs will cook a special meal just for you!
After your evening at Medieval Times, it’s time to indulge in some modern amenities—including comfy beds for a good night’s sleep—at your resort or vacation home. Whether you want the full resort experience at destinations like Omni Orlando Resort at Champions-Gate and Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, or the comforts of a vacation home away from home—you’ll find the perfect accommodations in Kissimmee.
