Last week I was invited to attend a press conference at the fabulous Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville. I had spent a week at the Opryland in January and hadn't heard a hint of anything so I was excited to attend.
And the announcement was well worth the trip as an alliance was announced between Gaylord Hotels® and DreamWorks® Animation!
Beginning later this summer (estimated for July) Gaylord Hotels will boost its leisure experience by featuring characters such as Shrek, Po- the Kung Fu Panda, the penguins of Madagascar and other favorites at all of their resorts!
Some of the planned experiences will include character breakfasts, themed holiday events, poolside activities, private birthday parties, movie screenings and more. My main question upon hearing this news was if Gaylord properties would be instituting a “kids club” or other child care activities which would allow parents the opportunity to have an adult evening while still allowing kids to have fun. The answer, ” It's something we're working on”.
I think this is a great alliance and will really help boost Gaylord Hotels appeal in the family market. What do you think?
Does the alliance between Gaylord Hotels and DreamWorks appeal to you? Would you be more likely to consider a Gaylord property for your family with the new kid-friendly activities?
