    Hi, My family is surprising my daughter with a WDW trip for her graduating HS . We are booked for August 2021.It s been a rough year for our family and we want to celebrate her accomplishment. What fun things can we do thats unique to celebrate 🍾

    Hi Margarita,

    Congratulations to your daughter on her upcoming graduation! As the mama of a member of the high school class of 2021 myself, I'm so excited to hear that you'll get to celebrate your graduate at The Most Magical Place on Earth! While our kiddos have certainly missed out on some of the usual senior experiences, I'm confident that your big surprise will be absolutely MAGICAL for your daughter!

    There's no better place to celebrate a special event than the Walt Disney World Resort, and I'd love to share a few suggestions for making your trip extra special. First, I'd keep an eye on shopDisney closer to graduation season, as they usually offer some adorable graduation merchandise. Whether you purchase something to surprise her about the trip, decorate your Disney Resort hotel room, or simply keep the memories of your trip alive, I hope you find something perfect! Next, there are several things you could schedule ahead of time to make your trip extra special! Perhaps a magical dinner at a restaurant your daughter has always wanted to try? Or what about looking through the Enchanting Extras to find something that she'd find incredible? Or Disney Parks Blog offered the wonderful suggestion of a Capture Your Moment photography session! Once you arrive, I'd definitely encourage you to ask a Cast Member for complimentary "I'm Celebrating" buttons, and I'd also recommend ordering a scrumptious and fun Mickey Mouse Celebration specialty cake to go along with your special dinner! For the cake, you may call ahead, ask the Concierge at your Disney Resort hotel, or simply ask at the check-in podium when you arrive at your restaurant.

    However you decide to celebrate your graduate, I hope that this milestone is SUPER special for her! Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Margarita, and please come see us again if you have any other questions!
