We have a press release from Walt Disney World offering great ideas for those visiting during Mother’s Day. Before I share it, I will say that some of my favorite things to do at Walt Disney World are on the list – Boma at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is my favorite non-Disney Springs Walt Disney World restaurant, and the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is my favorite event of the year. Really, there is just something for everyone at Walt Disney World to do, and that includes on Mother’s Day (May 12th, 2019). I am going to add an idea for shopping – if you plan to visit the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, there is nothing like World Showcase for picking up gifts from around the world (not just from around the World!). Next to Disney Springs, that is my favorite shopping location. Read below for the press release!
