    My family and I will be going for the first time in June 2020 and I wanted to get my mom a fun package of goodies for her birthday this year so she has some pre Disney items and is ready for her trip in 2020. Do you have any recommendations?

    Hi, Stacey! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I just love your question! You must be so excited for your first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! I know we can sprinkle some extra pixie dust on your mom's birthday to get her ready for your amazing vacation.

    First up, we're going to visit ShopDisney.com for one of the most basic essentials of any Walt Disney World trip - mouse ears! They're fun for all ages, and there are mouse ears in just about every color, style, character, and season you can imagine. My favorite are the Potion Purple ones, but there are lots of choices so you can find some that fit your mom's style perfectly.

    Also at ShopDisney.com, you can customize shirts for the whole family to wear on your Walt Disney World vacation. Your mom will love these! It's a great souvenir, and just think how amazing you'll all look in your Disney PhotoPass photos! There are a few different styles to choose from, so pick your favorite and start customizing!

    One more thing she'll need is a fabulous bag for the Theme Parks. You can order one of these super cute bags and put your other goodies inside. In addition to these ideas, you'll find lots of Disney themed items at retailers in your area (one of my favorite Disney shirts came from a non-Disney store!). Pick up a couple of little Disney gifts for your mom and throw them in the bag for an extra dash of fun, then add a birthday card with a Disney design and you've got a magical gift to celebrate your upcoming trip.

    Stacey, I hope I've given you a few ideas for your mom's pixie-dusted birthday gift. I know there's a lot that goes into planning your first visit to Walt Disney World, so please come back and see us if you have more questions as your trip gets closer. See ya real soon!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
