Disney World at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Spa

Located just 5 minutes from the Walt Disney World Resort, the Gaylord Palms Resort & Spa is the perfect setting for your Disney World vacation! I have just personally returned from a stay at this beautiful property and highly recommend it to my readers.

The 65-acre property is located just 1.5 miles from the main gate of the Walt Disney World Resort at the intersection of Osceola Parkway and South International Drive in Kissimmee-St. Cloud, Florida. Gaylord Palms is a straight shot from the Orlando International Airport.

Gaylord Palms Resort AtriumFew other places can summon such an immediate response as the atrium of Gaylord Palm Resort & Convention Center. You’ll be awestruck by the resort’s signature glass dome, where the Florida experience is showcased in all its glory — from the history and old-world charm of St. Augustine to the colorful and festive island spirit of Key West, to the mysterious waters and cypress of the Everglades.

Inside Gaylord Palms Resort visitors and guests can experience, for the first time ever, all of the wonder and enchantment of the State of Florida under one roof… and what a roof it is! Four and a half acres of glass and steel majestically soar over the facility’s main atrium space – a lush landscaped setting that is completely shielded from the changing weather.

Gaylord Palms Resort SpaLooking for the perfect way to relax after a day at the Orlando theme parks? The Relâche Spa is the perfect spot to shed tension and luxuriate in the pleasures of healthy living. Located inside the Gaylord Palms Resort the Relâche Spa offers an inspiring oasis which reflects the a world-renowned experience. Here you can enjoy tranquility, restore natural resiliency and explore your potential, and, of course, bask in world-class pampering. Replenish your spirit and relax your body at Relâche Spa.

At Gaylord Palm Resort, you'll find a wide variety of dining options to suit every taste. Stroll along a rugged wooden walkway through the Everglades to Old Hickory Steakhouse or walk down the wharf in Key West and savor fresh Florida seafood. If you are a little adventurous, climb aboard a floating sailboat and enjoy your favorite cocktail or light fare. Relish a la carte dining in St. Augustine at the Villa de Flora, designed to resemble the grand dining room of an old-world mansion.

Sunset Sam's Gaylord Palms ResortThe towering mast of the 60-foot sailboat Gaylord is the landmark for this "harbor of hip," Sunset Sam's Fish Camp. A tropical oasis of island excitement, the menu features a creative fusion of Floridian and Caribbean favorites, including the freshest seafood prepared to your specifications. Sunset Sam's will bring you back to the days of Ernest Hemingway, sitting dockside with oversized cocktails. Begin with appetizers aboard the sailboat, including crab cakes, conch fritters, "cigar" shrimp and Prince Edward Island Mussels. If the atmosphere – and the island-style music – fail to seduce your senses, the sinful desserts will. At sunset, a lively celebration begins, giving an excuse to party every night. Look no further – you've found the good life.

Gaylord Palms Resort Marine PoolAt the Marine Activities Pool the Gaylord Palms Resort has created a special place for families to play, including a zero-entry pool, pop-jet fountains, sand play area, and hair-wrap station. However, the pools don't stop at just one! The South Beach Pool is the place for adults to worship the sun in an art-deco pool environment reminiscent of Miami's trendy South Beach. The new Coquina Dunes Recreation Park also includes an executive putting course, bocce, croquet, and volleyball.

The Gaylord Palms Resort and Spa has it all! If you are looking to give your family the vacation of a lifetime, or want to enjoy a relaxing get away with your spouse, the Gaylord Palms is the perfect place. Book today!
