I’ve always loved the idea of Mother’s Day – maybe because I was blessed with the best mom out there? (Yes, I’m talking to you, Darleen Clark!) This year, as I’m just weeks away from expecting my first child, the holiday holds extra significance for me, and I can’t think of a better place than Disney Springs to celebrate the woman who brought you into the world.
Mother’s Day is May 14th, but at Disney Springs, you can start pampering her now with special promotions and limited-time offerings already underway at many retailers. And if your mom prefers her “thank you” in the form of a delicious meal, select restaurants are serving up special menus on her big day.
Read on to find out what I’m most excited about, then see the full listing in the graphic below:
Senses – A Disney Spa: For the first time at Disney Springs, guests can enjoy their choice of chair massages, Disney-inspired nail wraps by Jamberry, nail polish applications, updos, or even eyeshadow art at Marketplace Co-Op. With prices starting at $25 plus tax and services offered on a first come, first served basis, the Spa staff will be onsite from May 4-14, 2017.
Disney Floral & Gifts: Back by popular demand, the talented Disney floral team will be coming back to Marketplace Co-Op from May 1 – May 16, 2017 to offer a variety of flower arrangements and custom baskets, perfect for mom.
Mother’s Day Brunch at STK: My mouth waters every time I look at the all-new brunch menu from STK Orlando. Whether your mom fancies Cinnamon Monkey Bread, Avocado Toast with Poached Eggs, Shrimp & Grits, or the Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes, pictured, she’s bound to find something to suit her palate. Brunch is offered every Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and on Mother’s Day, moms receive a complimentary “MOMosa” and a special takeaway treat.
An Amphicar Tour at The BOATHOUSE: For families that have been waiting for the right “special occasion” to take a ride in a fully-restored vintage amphicar, now is the time. Make a reservation between May 12-15, 2017 and save $25 off the regular price, plus get a free family photo to commemorate the experience!
Special Promotions and Limited-time Offerings: Gemstone sets for $149 + tax at Luxury of Time by Diamonds International; free chocolates from See’s Candies with the purchase of UGG slippers or a robe; specialty “MOM cupcake box from Sprinkles cupcakes … this is just a sampling of the many delights waiting for mom at Disney Springs:
