KISSIMMEE, FL (PRWEB) May 28, 2004 -
Â While Orlando is the vacation capital of the world, it isnÂt on the itinerary for one pesky visitor. Cicadas, emerging from the group after a 17-year slumber, are not expected to visit Orlando.
And, for one Central Florida resort, itÂs an opportunity for a special promotion: The Great Cicada Escape.
ÂWhat better place to escape?Â said public relations manager Keith Salwoski. ÂWe can offer a luxurious Florida-themed environment where a lounge by the pool is literally thousands of miles from the cicada buzz that is expected to hit the East and Midwest.Â
The package, which includes a two-night stay and tickets for two to SeaWorld Orlando, also features a ÂBack to RealityÂ kit for the return home.
ÂThe kit features earplugs to block out the noise created by the mating insects, bug repellent, and a long-sleeve souvenir shirt to help shield the bugs,Â Salwoski said.
The resort, located five minutes from Walt Disney World theme parks, features innovative family-friendly facilities, the Mobil four-star Canyon Ranch SpaClub, and colorful Florida themes that carry throughout a soaring 4.5-acre glass-topped atrium and into each of the 1,406 guest rooms.
Families can also enjoy the resortÂs new ÂBest of Florida LIVE!Â exhibits, featuring live alligators, native Florida turtles, and non-venomous snakes.
Guests can also see whatÂs new at OrlandoÂs world-famous theme parks, including the new Waterfront activities area at SeaWorld, ÂMission: SpaceÂ at Epcot, ÂMickeyÂs PhilharMagicÂ at Magic Kingdom, and ÂRevenge of the Mummy - The RideÂ at Universal Orlando.
Offer is valid through June 30, 2004. Subject to availability. Package price (per night) is $219 plus tax. Not valid for groups, with other offers or promotions, or on existing reservations.
To make a reservation, guests should call the Gaylord Palms reservation office at 407-586-2000.
