Our family recently had the opportunity to spend the night at Gaylord Texan. The first thing we noticed when we walked in was how large and over the top this hotel was! Talk about exquisite details from the beautiful flooring to the decorations on the walls.
The rooms were immaculate and we were treated like celebrities while we were there. Even a bottle of wine and cheese platter was waiting for us in our room for the adults!
The kids favorite part was walking around to see all the “characters” they had walking through out the hotel.
This hotel is massive! Just check out this amazing picture!
Gaylord has also partnered up with the folks at Dreamworks! There were tons of directions through out the hotel and there are a ton of options for seeing your favorite characters from Dreamworks!
We had breakfast with Shrek and Friends while we were there! The kids really enjoyed seeing their favorite characters from the movie.
