    I am going to Disney with my bf (23)next week. He is a 1st timer! I was wondering what are some xtra magically things we can do that screams Disney & first time.I looked into geting a 1st time basket for the room however,wont be delivered b4 arrival

    Hi Brittany!

    Your vacation sounds practically perfect in every way!

    You could not have picked a more magnificent time to visit Walt Disney World Resort! Be sure you drop by Guest Relations in a Theme Parks or the front desk if you will be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and pick up a "First Visit" button. Unexpected magic can happen at any time and Cast Members will take notice of the "First Visit" button!

    I love your idea about a gift basket from Disney Floral & Gifts! If you are able to work out the delivery, I assure you it's well worth it. I have received baskets from Disney Floral & Gifts multiple times and each time was beyond magical!

    Some of the things I think of that scream Disney include:
    Eating cotton candy on Main Street, U.S.A., while watching Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade
    Enjoying classic attractions such as "it's a small world" or Pirates of the Caribbean
    Character Experiences - you have to visit Mickey Mouse!
    Fireworks! This is an absolute must do and you have several options!

    What I think makes this vacation so epic for both of you is that you are visiting during such an incredible time! As I'm sure you know, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is open! Plus, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is from August 29 - November 23, 2019. There are several amazing meal and seminar options. I would definitely check into those. While it may not initially scream Disney, when you experience a seminar, you will understand my recommendation. The service and experience are incredible!

    Oh my goodness! I'm so excited for both of you! Have a magical time!!
