    I'm going to DL with my 17 year old cousin for her graduation and my fiance (never been before) in June of 2013 how can I make this trip extra special for them?

    A trip to Disneyland is definitely the PERFECT way to celebrate your cousin's high school graduation, but let's not forget about your fiancee's first visit!  Both of these occasions are reason to celebrate at the Happiest Place on Earth!  When you arrive, be sure to visit Town Hall near the entrance where you'll be able to receive complimentary "Graduate" and "First Visit" buttons for the guests of honor!  And you won't be left out either because you can proudly wear an "I'm Celebrating" button to join in on the fun!

    I highly recommend purchasing a Mickey Ears Graduation Cap for your cousin to wear in the parks, but beware... these are extremely popular and sell out in the shoppes rather quickly during Graduation season.  You can usually find them at Disney Store or Ebay prior to you trip, but be sure to look for them as soon as possible.  Once you arrive at Disneyland, you can have the hat embroidered with your cousin's name to create a fun and priceless keepsake!

    I also recommend purchasing Disney's PhotoPass+ package which is an all inclusive photo package that includes hundreds of photos of your group from around the parks, on attractions, and even in select restaurants!  This is a great way to capture those special memories and PhotoPass+ is currently available for a low Pre-Arrival Offer Price.

    Also, consider making a reservation at one of Disneyland's finer restaurants to really celebrate the graduate.  It can be really fun to get dressed up for a night on the town at Disney!  My favorite "special" locations are the all new Carthay Circle Restaurant in California Adventure and Blue Bayou in Disneyland.  Reservations can be made by calling (714)781-DINE.  If you choose Carthay, be sure to ask about the World of Color Dining Package which will give your party access to the World of Color reserved viewing area.  Best Wishes, Amanda F.
