    Our family of 7 (aged 11 to 70) will be visiting Disney World next summer for my Dad's 70th birthday but will be staying off-resort. We want to do something really special and unique to celebrate the occasion, do you have any suggestions?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Marie!

    I am so excited for your dad's 70th birthday celebration in Walt Disney World!

    We celebrated my father-in-law's, my dad's and my mom's 70th birthdays with trips to WDW as well, making plans that were tailored to each birthday boy or girl. What fun!

    When traveling with extended family for special occasions, I love to book a photography session to capture that moment. Check out Disney Fine Art Photography & Video's Mini Portrait Session, a convenient, fantastic way to get beautiful, professional photos of your entire family, together for this wonderful event. Your session will be super-easy, your photos will be spectacular, and you'll leave your 20-minute session with all photos on a flash drive, ready for you to share and print as you like.

    Some other ways to Customize your Special Occasion include ordering a specialty cake to be delivered to a Walt Disney World Resort restaurant, picking up a Happy Birthday button or a special Happy Birthday Ear Hat, all of which will result in lots of folks wishing your dad a happy birthday in addition to the family.

    Another great celebration could be Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage, where you'll be treated to snacks and beverages while you enjoy some jokes with Patch the pirate, Captain Hook and Mr. Smee. Then, it's time to shove off for a spectacular water view of Wishes Nighttime Spectacular. Truly, this was our 70th birthday celebrant's favorite moment of our trip.

    Wishing your dad a very happy birthday, Marie! Send more questions as you play this extra-magical trip; we love to help!
