    Hi Erin my wife and I adopted 4 kids last year. And we are going to Disney in Orlando the first week of may and staying at all star music and got hopper passes for the week. Is there anything Disney will do to help us celebrate as a family?

    Hello, Chris!

    Congratulations on your recent adoption - how wonderful! I am so thrilled for you, Chris! And, I cannot think of a better place to celebrate your new family than at Walt Disney World Resort.

    There are many ways to celebrate your new family at Walt Disney World Resort. When you arrive at Disney's All-Star Music Resort, ask a Cast Member for "I'm Celebrating" buttons for everyone in your family. You can customize these with a sharpie pen, perhaps with "I'm celebrating our new family!" Proudly wear these around the theme parks, and Cast Members will congratulate you along the way! You should also note that you are celebrating your new family when you make your Advance Dining Reservations. Here's a link that will give you some ideas as to how to customize your celebration.

    Also, I'd suggest purchasing Memory Maker for your trip. There are so many wonderful photo opportunities for family photos. Our family loves the photos and videos that only the magic of Disney can deliver, like a slow-motion video of all of us on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or a picture of our family with Olaf! When we look back through those photos and videos, we get a chance to relive some of our magical memories. I think this would be very special for your new family.

    Please let me know if I can help answer any other questions about your upcoming family vacation! It looks like you are within your FastPass+ booking window, so do not forget to reserve some of your favorite attractions!

    Wishing you magical memories to last a lifetime!
