    My daughter’s sweet 16 is August 17. We are coming with 3 of her friends. Any ideas of special things we can do while at Disney World? We are staying at Bay Lake Tower.

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Pamela!

    Thank you for stopping by with a very special question. I am happy to hear you will be commemorating your daughter’s 16th birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort. Get ready to make pixie-dusted memories you will cherish forever!

    Celebrating loved ones at The Most Magical Place on Earth is truly special. Since you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, I suggest contacting Disney Floral & Gifts to prepare a special in-room surprise for your daughter. There are beautiful floral arrangements and gift baskets you can select online, and you are also welcome to contact a dream maker who can help you personalize a gift for your princess.

    Purchasing Memory Maker is a great way to access all the digital content captured by Disney PhotoPass service during your visit, including select attraction photos and videos. I love not having to worry about taking pictures and letting Disney PhotoPass photographers capture our vacation memories. I also recommend booking a Capture Your Moment photo session at Magic Kingdom Park to commemorate your celebration. You can download the photos taken during the session at no extra cost if you have Memory Maker.

    To make your daughter’s birthday visit to the Walt Disney World Resort unforgettable, I believe you should consider booking a fireworks cruise or a fireworks dessert party at Magic Kingdom Park. I also suggest making reservations for a special meal at California Grill, Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera, or Cinderella’s Royal Table, located inside Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park. When you make dining reservations, you can even order a specialty cake (subject to availability). Finally, I think your daughter and her friends would love to get pampered at The Grand Floridian Spa located at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    It was a pleasure answering your question, Pamela. I hope these tips help you create magical memories for your daughter. Come back to visit us as you plan her birthday celebration. We are delighted to help!

    Best Disney wishes,
