    Good afternoon, I would like to know what kind of celebration are available for a family with two graduates? My son has completed 8th grade and myself has graduated with my Bachelors degree this year. This will also be my family's first time visiting.

    Hi Angelique,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on these very important celebrations! Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be thrilled to celebrate your achievements and your first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    In looking at your arrival date, I hope you have already reserved a vacation package with a resort hotel stay. When we celebrate at the Walt Disney World Resort, we always stop by the front desk of our resort on arrival and pick up a celebrating button. When we wear that button around the parks, we get extra attention from various cast members. We then make sure we get a special dining reservation one night of our stay. I suggest that you also review the Personal Triumphs page for other possible celebratory ideas.

    I like to reserve special experiences when we can fit those into our budget. Take a look at the Enchanting Extras page. The Caring for Giants tour is one of the least expensive tours but it provides a fascinating behind the scenes glimpse into how they care for the elephants at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park. I loved seeing the elephants up close! Your son might also like the Dine with an Animal Specialist experience. 

    Angelique, I hope you get a chance to see baby elephant Stella while you are there!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
