    Hi, I’m visiting Florida in May and will be bringing my 11 year old son to Disney to celebrate beating cancer. Could you suggest any special ways we could do this please? Thanks Nikki

    Hi Nikki!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! First, CONGRATULATIONS to your superhero son for beating cancer! Celebrating this remarkable achievement at Walt Disney World Resort will be unforgettable for the both of you! As a mama of a Mouseketeer who is often in the hospital battling illnesses of his own, I understand the feeling of watching your little one fighting for his health. I'm honored to help you plan a celebration in Disney your son will never forget!

    If you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, it would be so exciting to begin your son's magical stay by surprising him with an in-room gift from Disney Floral & Gifts! You can choose from a selection of gifts or decorations that will "magically" appear upon your arrival! One gift that would be perfect is the Honor Your Hero. This customizable medal and declaration honors a Disney dreamer who displays character, courage and hope. Your son's brave triumph over cancer makes him the ultimate hero!

    Another exciting way to celebrate would be to book a Pirates & Pals Fireworks Dessert Voyage. Your son can bring out his inner pirate, eat like a scalawag and even meet Captain Hook before sailing the Seven Seas Lagoon and watching the spectacular fireworks show!

    When you arrive, definitely pick up a complimentary celebration button at your Resort hotel or in any of the four theme parks. There will be a place on the button where he can write what he's celebrating. Wearing a celebration button that proudly displays "Beating Cancer!" will catch the eye of many Cast Members and Guests who would love to congratulate him on his bravery and strength throughout his vacation!

    Many more magical wishes,
