    Hi! I'm thinking about booking a vacation for me & my sorority "family." My "Big Sister" will be graduating & I was just wondering if you had any ideas for activities & how to make this an extra special visit?

    Hi, Emilee!  I went right to the source on this one, as my daughter, who is a Theta, took her Big to Walt Disney World when she graduated!  

    The first thing they did was book a special dinner, based on her Big's preferences.  That meant they went to a character buffet!  They had photos taken with Mickey Mouse and Goofy, with all the girls in their Theta shirts, My daughter had a photo mat in her backpack, and she got all the character autographs on the mat.  When she got home, she logged on to PhotoPass, and bought the best photo of the gang to print out.  Each of her sisters also autographed the mat, and it was a beautiful graduation gift.  They also did photos with the princesses, because they were the princess family.

    They weren't all over 21, so they did a dessert tour of the world through EPCOT's World Showcase.  They bought and shared desserts from each country, laughing and giggling through pictures of each one.  If you are all over 21, you might want to share a drink from each of the countries.  Just do so responsibly (you did ask a Mom!!).  

    Also if you are over 21, you might want to check out Jelly Rolls on the Boardwalk.  This is an awesome night club, with dueling pianos, singing, laughing, and yeah, drinking.  Responsibly.  There's that Mom thing kicking in again!

    They wore a lot of matching t-shirts, they wore tiaras, and they got her graduation mouse ears.  You can also make special t-shirts at Downtown Disney's Design a Tee.

    Have an absolutely wonderful celebration!  If I can help with anything else, come back and see me!
