Grab your swamp shorts and Join Gaylord Palms for

Family Fun with Dreamworks Animation’s Shrek and Friends

Find your roar. Score some swampy goo. Devour scrumptious concoctions. Test your mettle and see if you are made for swamp life livin’ at its finest. Get down and dirty and become honorary ogres when you celebrate Family Fun with Shrek & Friends taking place at Gaylord Palms Resort on April 13 and May 4, 2013.

Mix and mingle and rub elbows with the friendliest — er, mightiest of ogres, the one and only Shrek! Create some ooey gooey swampy slime, and then feast on swamp sludge and eyeball cookies (green milk and M&M cookies). If that doesn’t satisfy your fever for the family fun factor, head outside for a Crack-A-Lackin’ Pool Party and Splash ‘N’ Screen viewing of DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc.’s film, Shrek Forever After. You will want to capture this sticky situation, so pack those cameras!

Package guests will also be fit for fun with your very own DreamWorks autograph book and Shrek ears amenities, along with a DreamWorks activity book, all received at check-in. Additionally, you will embark on an adventure like no other in the Rise of the Guardians Adventure Scavenger Hunt. Join forces with Jack Frost and the legendary Guardians to solve exciting puzzles, crack codes and find the clues needed to defeat the evil spirit, Pitch, and his devious plan to engulf the world in darkness and fear. Are you brave enough to take the challenge? Themed prizes can be retrieved at Concierge.

Why let the fun stop there? For an additional charge, guests can start the next day with a ShrekFeast Interactive Character Breakfast.Kids will love becoming an honorary Ogre and joining Shrek and friends for a fairytale feast fit for a king. Tableside hugs included! This experience features a Magic Fountain bubbling over with intoxicating chocolate potions and Shrek-shaped waffles with syrup.

This exclusive ogre-ific event is part of The DreamWorks Experience and takes place at Gaylord Palms on April 13 and May 4. Visit today to book your Family Fun with Shrek & Friends package. Package rates start at $179 per night (exclusive of tax, resort fees and parking).
