Gaylord Palms Resort – A standout destination!

Sunny skies, sparkling lakes, and countless entertainment options have earned Kissimmee the title "vacation capital of the world." This city is the perfect destination for those looking to visit theme parks and explore other local attractions, as it is just a 90-minute drive from both of Florida’s coasts. With every major hotel chain represented, countless luxury boutique hotels, and over 22,000 vacation home rentals, there is no shortage of fantastic accommodation options in Kissimmee. Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, operated by Marriott International, stands out from other resorts by offering guests delicious dining options, an onsite water park, animal encounters, and unforgettable seasonal events.

From the cobblestones of St. Augustine to the vibrant colors of Key West, Gaylord Palm's stunning glass atriums showcase Florida's diverse landscapes. Resort guests staying in atrium view rooms during one of the resort's seasonal events can view nightly light shows from their private balconies. The newest show, Luminosity, debuted during the resort's Spring It On event this year. It features animated curtains synchronized to an original score with visuals representing lighting, fireflies, and flowers. The coveted atrium view rooms also boast unparalleled views of the resort's lush indoor gardens and flowing waterfalls.

For those who enjoy a theme-park-focused vacation, Gaylord Palm Resort offers water park view rooms with uninterrupted views of Cypress Springs Water Park. The three-acre water park, accessible only to resort guests, has a tropical pool oasis, an action river, and several water slides. Past guests rave about the Florida Free Fall, a drop slide that plummets 35 feet through a trap door, and the Tamiami Twister, which features dueling slides with many twists and turns. Younger kids will have a blast at the Tree House water playground, which offers age-appropriate activities such as four small water slides, a ground spray area, and a 317-gallon tipping bucket.

Guests who seek a sophisticated and relaxing environment similar to Miami's South Beach can spend their day lounging at the South Beach Pool. The pool is surrounded by palm trees and just a few steps from the SandBar, an outdoor bar serving all-American favorites and refreshing beverages. For the ultimate poolside luxury experience, guests can reserve private cabanas at all resort pools. Each cabana has two deck chairs, an outdoor sectional sofa, and a "call for service" button for on-demand poolside dining service. Gaylord Palm's has nine restaurants and sports bars showcasing a variety of cuisines. Additionally, resort guests can order from the a la carte room service menu, which features freshly made meals that can be enjoyed in the room or on the go.

The resort recently completed a $158 million expansion, including additional guest rooms and updated meeting spaces. The new Gulf Coast Tower has 306 new guest rooms with a modern coastal design.  Gaylord Palms's impressive variety of dining options, entertainment, and guest room options make it a destination all on its own!
