Planning a Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend is just around the corner and there are endless options of activities to experience and sights to see to create a fun-filled getaway. Hawthorn Suites Lake Buena Vista is ideally located in a central area near the parks, restaurants, shopping outlets and grocery stores, making this a great vacation hub for the family!


Live Out Your Disney Dreams

Looking for a quick trip to get your Disney fix? Located just a mile away is Disney Springs® where you can go shopping, get a quick bite to eat, watch a dine-in movie or even plan a family dinner at one of their famous restaurants! It’s free to enter, which means you’ll have more money to spend on a brand-new pair of Mickey Ears, or even a Mickey Mouse shaped cake at Amorette’s Patisserie!

If you’ve made your Theme Park Reservations to attend the Taste of EPCOT® International Flower & Garden Festival, then you’re truly in for a treat! This is one of Orlando’s beloved annual festivals because it truly is a magical sight to see! Enjoy the beautiful gardens like the Goodness Garden Butterfly House Presented by GoGo squeeZ® where you can view butterflies up close, learn about their lifecycles and maybe even catch one breaking through its chrysalis. Don’t forget about the event’s signature topiaries! This year’s displays include Sorcerer Mickey Mouse, Anna and Elsa, Beauty and the Beast, Winnie the Pooh and more. You won’t be able to resist taking a photo in front of these works of art.

Amenities That Are a Vacation in Itself

Most of the time, when you go on vacation, especially an Orlando vacation, you can’t help but want to do as many activities as possible each day. Sometimes, though, a nice relaxing day at the hotel may just be what we need to relax from our daily lives. If your family loves the pool, then creating a pool day would be perfect! Let the kids have fun in the pool while you lounge on the pool deck or unwind in the hot tub. If you’re hungry, grill your favorite hot dogs, hamburgers and more on the BBQ grills located next to the pool area. If the kids want to take a break from the pool, they can play a game of basketball on the sport court in the same area. They’ll just have to stop by the front desktop pick up a basketball!

Orlando is packed with endless activities, experiences and attractions. It’s difficult to fit everything in just one vacation, but be sure to take some time to explore the city and visit some of the popular restaurants for a special culinary experience, go to some of the shopping outlets nearby as well scope out the local art scene. Your Orlando Getaway Awaits!
