    Boyfriend, 43, 1st trip. I'm seasoned visitor. He's quite shy and a little skeptical he will enjoy himself- thinks he's too old. Apart from 1st visit button what can I do for him that won't embarrass him, but will add a little magic? Staying off property,

    Hi Catherine,

    You are never to old for magic and pixie dust!

    I would order the planning video and watch it with him. Pay attention to what sparks his interest. Also, plan a lunch or dinner at a restaurant that has his favorite food. Or better yet, book a reservation at one of the restaurants around the lagoon at Epcot's World Showcase about an hour before fireworks and enjoy dessert with fireworks. Narcoossee's at the Grand Floridian offers a great view too of the Magic Kingdom and its fireworks, Wishes.

    How about enjoying the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue? It is a show with dinner and great time is had by everyone.

    You can also work with Disney's Floral & Gift to have a special gift delivered at a restaurant. This is always magical.

    Finally, if you are going during Halloween or Christmas, enjoy one of the special event parties. So much fun!

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
