~Toadally~ Special Ways to Celebrate Mother's Day at Disney World

by Tad on April 29, 2022 Orlando

Mother's Day at Disney World - Pinterest'Sup! When it comes to mothers, Lily and I are pretty sure we hit the jackpot! We love Mommy Frog, and Mommy Frog loves Disney. So, what could be better than celebrating Mother’s Day at Disney World? (Hint: Not much — except for maybe a full day without any bickering or complaining from Lily and me!)

We want to treat Mommy Frog to a day filled with classic Disney magic, and we’re in luck because Disney World has plenty of special activities and gift ideas to offer so that Mommy Frog can be pampered like a queen … or should I say, a Disney Princess. Plus, as an extra gift to Mom, traditional character meet-and-greets have returned to select locations, so Mom can get a hug from Mickey!

If you’re headed to the parks during Mother’s Day weekend (it's Sunday, May 8 this year!), here’s a list of ideas on how you can show appreciation for your own frog mom. (Psst ... want to spoil your mom with a vacation without breaking the bank? Be sure to check out our Hot Deals!)

For the Foodie

Mother's Day at Disney World - Jumbo Cupcake from BoardWalk Bakery

If your mother looooves good food, a celebratory treat or meal is obviously a must. With hundreds of eateries on Disney property to choose from, you can go with something simple like a Mother’s Day dessert or go all out with a fancy dining experience. Just be sure to make any reservations far in advance. Many places will offer special treats over Mother's Day weekend, and some will even have treats up to a week before!

Make It Extra Special with Her Favorite Characters

Devour a delicious meal while you greet a group of your favorite characters. We know it’s tough to choose which one, but it really comes down to your mom’s wishes! Does she want to dine with Disney Princesses, the Fab Five or others? Here’s our ranking of character dining locations if you need some suggestions! While some character interactions may still be modified and some of the character dining experiences are not available, traditional character greetings and interactions are slowly returning to certain locations, as of April 18. We highly recommend Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends at Topolino's Terrace (where we have seen the return of normal greetings) for a Mother's Day celebration in 2022.

For the Green Thumb

Mother's Day at Disney World - Bambi's Butterfly Garden

For moms who love to garden (like our own greenie, Mommy Frog), plan to stop by EPCOT’s International Flower and Garden Festival. This annual event features Disney character topiaries, themed gardens, hoppin' concerts and, of course, fresh food and delicious drinks at Outdoor Kitchens.

For the Fashionista

Mother's Day at Disney World - Disney Springs

Disney Springs is the shopping hop spot if you’re just looking to pick up the perfect gift or if you want your mom to select something for herself. Disney Springs offers a wide variety of brand-name stores, as well as shops that are entirely one-of-a-kind to Disney Springs. If your mom likes to accessorize with bling, you wouldn’t want to miss the jewelry collections at Ever After Jewelry Co., Pandora or Alex and Ani. Be sure to drop by the Marketplace Co-Op, where there are several shops offering specialty items, including accessories, home products and artwork. On Mother’s Day at Disney World, be on the lookout, as some stores may have featured items for the special occasion.

For the Outdoor Adventurer

Mother's Day at Disney World - Horses at Tri-Circle-D Ranch

Is your mom always ready for any adventure that comes her way? Bring your camping gear to The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort for a night under the stars. There are many outdoor recreational activities <hoppening at the campsites. Take your pick: canoeing, kayaking, archery, horse-drawn wagon rides or horseback riding (Tri-Circle-D Ranch is where Cinderella's ponies stay!).

Pony Rides are currently available at the new Tri-Circle-D Ranch on a walk-in basis only. Trail Rides can be booked by calling (407) WDW-PLAY (939-7529) and are available on a walk-in basis pending availability at the Trail Ride check-in building at the front of Fort Wilderness. Reservations are highly recommended. Carriage rides are available at the Cabins and Campsites of Fort Wilderness and at Port Orleans – Riverside. The Fort Wilderness Archery Experience is also available and must be booked by calling (407) WDW-PLAY.

For the Animal Lover

Mother's Day at Disney World - Kilimanjaro Safaris

A trip to Disney's Animal Kingdom is the obvious choice. It’s where you’ll find lions, tigers, rhinos — oh my. Take a Kilimanjaro Safari ride or trek through the numerous trails to spot as many animals as you can.

For the Movie Buff

A trip to Tinseltown via Disney's Hollywood Studios is the perfect ticket for movie lovers! Let Mom confront Kylo Ren and his Stormtroopers or pilot the Millennium Falcon. The whole fam can become part of a classic Mickey Mouse cartoon on Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway. You can also treat Mom to a movie at AMC Theaters Dine-In at Disney Springs.

For the Pool Lounger

Mother's Day at Disney World - Castaway Creek

This is perhaps our personal favorite break from our regular Frog Pond! How about a cool getaway at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park? This Disney water park provides prime relaxation by the poolside or a ride down a lazy river. For the thrill-seeking mom, the water parks have more than enough rides to increase her heart rate. For an extra perk, rent out a private shaded area — Beachcomber Shacks — which includes cushioned seating, towels, a cooler with water and ice, refillable drink mugs and a locker for up to six people. Currently, Blizzard Beach is closed, but Typhoon Lagoon is ready for Mom to relax!

Mother's Day at Disney World - Stormalong Bay

Of course, there’s always the option to lounge around your resort’s pool (and it's hard to beat Stormalong Bay at Disney's Beach and Yacht Club Resorts!) If you need any help choosing the right Disney hotel pool, check out some of our top favorites.

Hoppy Mother's Day!
