If you are attending Blissdom 2013 this is where you'll be! The Gaylord is HUGE! Like so big you'll need a map to get around. It's a super nice hotel with lots of great restaurants. Everything is right there so you'll hardly have to leave. If you aren't getting a room parking is $17 a day...just FYI. If you have a room parking is free with your room card. The amenities are great and the food is wonderful, but I'd say the average plate at each restaurant is around $15-$20. So unless you plan on driving off the grounds or bringing snacks plan to budget for food.
Okay so here is a recap of our trip (Prepare for picture overload!)
