Spooky Fun Beginning at Gaylord Palms..Frightfully Fun for the Family

Goblins and Giggles Getaway Weekends at Gaylord Palms

As those that follow the channel know, we recently were hosted by Gaylord Palms and spent two wonderful nights at the resort. Anytime of the year, as we found out ourselves, there is so much to see and do, from strolling through the cities of Florida, having water fun in their Cypress Water Park, talking to the alligators and eating dinner on a scooner in the Keys.

But, starting next month, a whole new set of fun and excitement is set to take over this massive resort. Goblins and Giggles Getaway Weekends has a host of different activities for everyone in the family to enjoy. Of course, we will be checking out some of the fun as well and you will get to come along ‘through the lens of this live streamer.’
