    For her 19th birthday, my daughter is traveling to Disney World with one of her friends. Is there anything special I can plan for them to do - especially something that could be a surprise. They do have reservations at a few restaurants during their visit.

    Hiya Denise,

    Welcome back to planDisney! Nothing is more magical than celebrating another year at the Most Magical Place on Earth. Happy early birthday to your daughter; I hope it is as magical as I'm sure she is!

    A fantastic way to surprise your daughter with something she won't forget is to reserve an experience from the Enchanting Extras Collection. From cake decorating to Horseback Riding and dessert parties, there is something for everyone to enjoy in the Enchanting Extras Collection. These extraordinary experiences provide extra unique glimpses behind the scenes of Walt Disney World Resort. Additionally, since they tend to be limited by space, they are more intimate ways to celebrate special occasions. If your daughter is into animals, I can't recommend the Wild Africa Trek at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park enough. One of my fellow panelists, Ariane, recently did it and had the most fantastic time. It takes the beloved Kilimanjaro Safari experience and makes it even more memorable. As someone who loves food, I'm most excited about the return of Amorette's Patisserie's Cake Decorating Experience. The Mickey dome cake is iconic, and learning how to craft one (and taking it home with you) is an ideal way to celebrate a birthday. I mean, what is a birthday without a cake?! I highly suggest looking at which Enchanting Extras are available during your daughter's planned dates and choosing a selection that would be a dream come true for her. Now in terms of keeping it a surprise, you need to call a Cast Member at 407-939-7529. The Cast Members will be able to assist you in booking the reservation and inputting your daughter and her friend's details, all without them knowing. Then when you are ready to reveal the surprise, you can give them the reservation information, and they can enjoy the experience!

    I hope this was helpful, Denise! If you need anything more specific or want to learn more about anything else, please come back and see us!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
