    Hi Duane,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Celebrating a birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort is just about as magical as it gets; there are so many ways to add "pixie dust" to your celebration! 

    One of the most unique ways to celebrate your daughter's sweet sixteen would be to book Wild Africa Trek in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. This one of a kind (separately priced) Tour allows you to get an up-close view of some of the animals on the savanna. You'll cross over a rope bridge and get to dangle over hippos and crocodiles while safely secured to a harness. You will also get to snack on African inspired cuisine while overlooking the gorgeous savanna. Trek Tour Guides will take photos to capture your memories during this adventure and at the end of the Tour you will receive a photo code that you can use to access and download images taken during your Trek. It's truly an unforgettable experience. Reservations can be made 180 days in advance of your Resort stay by calling (407) 939-8687.

    Another special way to celebrate would be to book Ferrytale Wishes: A Fireworks Dessert Cruise. The Cruise takes place aboard a ferry boat where you'll enjoy a voyage full of delicious desserts, specialty beverages, and a gorgeous view of the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular. 

    You could also give her the "Royal treatment" by Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot. Your princess can meet some of her favorite Disney Princesses while dining on an "All You Care To Enjoy" selection of yummy menu items. 

    I hope these suggestions help! 

    Enjoy Your Magical Celebration,
