    We are so excited about our 1st trip to Disney with our 4 yr old son. We've received the free dining plan, and an upgrade to SSR from AS Movie. What other Disney "magic" can we expect?

    Well it sounds like you're having quite the Magical experience already! 

    The best thing about that Walt Disney World magic is that it is often completely unexpected.  Things you can do to maybe encourage some magic include notifying everyone if you are celebrating something special.  Make sure a birthday or an anniversary or other special celebration are noted on your reservations, and if you are making advanced dining reservations as well, have them note your special occasion as well.

    When you go into the theme parks, grab a celebration button.  You can get a button that says you are celebrating your first visit, and I have seen buttons celebrating everything from a baby's first tooth to overwhelming mediocrity.  The buttons usually get some recognition from cast members, so wear them proudly!

    Have a wonderful vacation!  I hope the magic keeps happening for you!
