It’s almost Mother’s Day, and 2021 is starting to look a lot better than last year for celebrating your mom/mother figure.
Many restaurants and attractions are back open, and offering special deals or dinners/brunches to enjoy. Plus, a lot of people are getting vaccinated, making it safer to spend time together.
I’ve perused all the listings and press emails, and here are CitySurfing Orlando’s picks for celebrating moms on Mother’s Day, May 9, 2021. All prices do not include tax or gratuity (please don’t forget to tip!). Under the restaurant list are some fun events happening to enjoy with mom, too.
Do you love the Minions from Despicable Me? If so, then you’ll love the new Despicable Me kids’ suites offered by Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando.
The rooms feature Minion wallpaper, Minion window dressing, and even custom missle beds for the kids to sleep in. The suites also feature a regular king bedroom for the adults, for a total of 650-675 square feet. If the beds were big enough, I think I’d want to sleep with the minions.
The hotel has even put together this cute video showing the Minions helping in assembling a suite:
