Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there, especially my wife! In honor of today, we have a special article listing the Florida Thrills’ Mom’s favorite things at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Favorite Hotel

Disney’s Yacht Club Resort

  • She loves the humongous sand-bottom pool, Stormalong Bay

  • She enjoys the comfortable atmosphere and warm, homey feeling, with accents like dark hardwood floors.
  • She likes the close proximity to Beaches and Cream, a soda fountain great for some ice cream

Favorite Theme Park

Magic Kingdom

  • She loves that it is separated from the parking lot and that you have to take a boat or Monorail to reach it
