The Gaylord Palms Resort is vying for Halloween tourists by entertaining guests with a Monster Mash Bash.
Goblins & Giggles Getaway Weekends run through Oct. 29 and offers trick or treaters a chance to stay onsite rather than attend the theme park Halloween parties.
Along with the Monster Mash Bash, activities include spooky movies under the stars, trick or treating, and a pool party hosted by the vampire Vladimir.
Spookley the Square Pumpkin, a little gourd with a message about anti-bullying, will lead a poolside hide and seek scavenger hunt.
A new Swamp Witch Escape Ghost Tour has been added this year. The 4.5-acre atrium tour is themed around Bessie Budd-Graham, a.k.a. the swamp witch of Tallahassee.
The activities are only for registered guests and the hotel is offering a $189 a night package, which includes a room and all Halloween events.
