When we arrived at the hotel we checked into our amazing room on the 9th floor. All of the rooms in our section had recently been remodeled, and they are gorgeous! Willow wanted to make sure we got a picture of her bed to share with everyone. She was so excited about those flower pillows.
If you've never been to the Gaylord Palms, it's built to look like a city, but everything is indoors. This was the view from our window.
After dinner we went back up to our room for diaper changes and to prepare for our night with Shrek! We we arrived we were greeted with a cart full of treats and drinks to welcome us to the hotel. Gaylord Palms really nows how to make a girl feel special!
Shrek Fingers with green slime! These were the best tasting treats, no Ogre fingers don't look very appetizing, but trust me they were great. The green slime was chocolate syrup dyed with green food coloring. What's in an Ogre finger?
Once we were able to pry Willow away from the cookies we went down to see Shrek. The entire day she kept saying how much she wanted to meet donkey, but unfortunately Donkey was busy taking care of his little half dragon babies so he wasn't able to make it. Shrek, Fiona, and Puss in Boots came instead. No pictures of any of them because Willow was all talk, she is not a brave girl. In fact when she saw Shrek in the exhibit hall she took off running screaming "No Willow's scared!" (He's a big guy, at least 6'4 so I don't really blame her!) We settled down and watch Shrek the 3rd on the law with the rest of the kids, while the daddy man went to the resort gym.

Here are some of the cool things we found around the hotel. A waterfall in the St. Augustine atrium. Willow went to visit the waterfall at least 15 times.
We had such a great time at the Gaylord Palms, and even though we live in the area we'd defiantly consider taking the girls to stay again just for the gorgeous scenery and amazing customer service we received. If you're coming to Orlando anytime soon stay at Gaylord Palms, you won't be disappointed!
