Shrek, a night stay at a nearby resort and six buddies just might make the best birthday bash ever.
The Gaylord Hotel in National Harbor is now offering DreamWorks Experience Birthday Celebrations, a birthday package featuring characters from movies such as “Shrek,” “Kung Fu Panda” or “Madagascar” on weekends this month and every day beginning May 25 through the summer.
The one-night party package starts at $999 and includes a night’s stay at the resort for a family up to four and a DreamWorks themed in-room breakfast. An hour-and-a-half party for the birthday child and six of his or her friends is also part of the package. It includes an appearance of one DreamWorks character (Shrek, Fiona, Puss in Boots, Po, Alex or King Julien), a t-shirt for the birthday child, a themed character cake, pizza and activities such as a Puss In Boots “Quest for the Magic Beans” scavenger hunt.
For additional fees, characters can be added on, additional children can be invited and additional rooms can be added to the night stay. For details, visit DreamWorksExperienceatGaylordHotels.com
