    Hi! I’m planning a trip to Disney with my family for February. I’ve taken the kids before but it’s the first time EVER for my parents. I want it to be especially magical considering they’ve never been and they get to experience with their grand babies (5,

    Welcome back to planDisney, Paige! 

    We’re incredibly happy to hear from you again! There’s so much magic happening during the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Walt Disney World Resort, and your trip is going to be EVEN MORE magical because it’s your parents first visit! Mickey, Minnie, and the gang are always so excited to greet new Mouseketeers — no matter their age! Oh boy! 

    There are many ways to sprinkle extra pixie dust on your parents, Paige! My first tip would be to go to one of the gift shops within the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks to ask a Cast Member for their complimentary “1st Trip” buttons! (Be sure you and your kids get your complimentary “I’m Celebrating” buttons while you’re there!) If you and your parents wear these buttons around the Walt Disney World Resort, you never know what magical extras will flow your way! 

    When you’re dining at restaurants, or checking in to your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, be sure the Cast Members know that it’s your parents first time to Disney World! Sometimes special things will happen! (You may also consider adding a Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake to one of your Table Service experiences, Paige!) 

    I’d also recommend visiting the Disney Floral and Gifts site! You and your family could pitch in to get your parents a special bouquet of flowers, or a bundle of snacks, or balloons, or presents to be delivered right to their Disney Resorts Collection Hotel room! This is always the cherry on top of a practically perfect vacation! 

    If you have additional questions, or are looking for further tips, we’d love to hear from you again at planDisney! 

    See ya REAL soon!
