    Heading to WDW in 2 weeks for a girls trip/birthday trip. I can't seem to come up with any ideas to celebrates my friends 53rd birthday. We've done Cinderellas Royal Table, had an in room celebration, and met with the characters. Thank You

    Hi Becky! You are a wonderful friend! I know you are going to have a magical vacation and let me be one of the 1st to wish your friend a very happy birthday!

    Have you thought about Senses - the Disney spas located at Grand Floridian Resort and Spa or Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa? There are an assortment of treatments to choose from including manicure/pedicure, facials, massages and body treatments. There is also a relaxation area that I enjoyed as much as my massage. It has a steam room and whirlpool and is so tranquil. Enjoying Senses among friends will be the icing on the cake.

    Speaking of cake, another fun idea would be to have a cake delivered to a Disney restaurant. You can choose chocolate or white and add a special message to the cake. For more information, including a list of restaurants where the cakes can be delivered, contact Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. We have seen many families take their cake with them when they left the restaurant because they weren't able to finish it. This is a great idea but you might keep it in mind when you are planning your delivery so you can take the cake back to your Resort hotel.

    If you want her 53rd celebration to be a bit more on the wild side, I would also recommend treating her to Wild Africa Trek. Located in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, the Wild Africa Trek is an absolute must do! It's a private tour to visit animals in the Safi River Valley with knowledgeable guides that concludes with African-inspired snacks. Amazing!

    Have a great girls trip and a wonderful celebration!
