    Hello! Love this panel!! My boyfriend and I are coming on June 11th (so close!!). We are both 22 and celebrating our college graduation. Any suggestions of things to do during our week long stay with a tight budget for our age?

    Hi there Nicolle! Thank you for the kind words! It is truly a pleasure to answer all of your Walt DIsney World vacation planning questions! How exciting you will be celebrating your college graduation in the "Happiest Place on Earth" in just a few short days! 
    I would definitely recommend visiting Downtown Disney, an entertainment district, which does not charge parking or admission fees and offers exciting dining, shopping, and entertainment options! One of my favorite dining locations at Downtown Disney which serves delicious dishes at affordable prices is Paradiso 37. 

    Disney's BoardWalk is another one of my favorite areas featuring dining, shopping, and entertainment options galore!  My family loves to watch the street performers after enjoying a fantastic dinner and then end the night watching IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth from the BoardWalk.Follow the link provided to read more about the exciting entertainment opportunities that await at the BoardWalk. 

    Consider visiting one of Disney's Water Parks or miniature golf courses.My family loves both Disney's Blizzard Beach and DIsney's Typhoon Lagoon for their unique theming and thrilling water attractions.Both Winter Summerland and Fantasia Gardens provide fun theming if you're interested in a round of miniature golf. 

    Another fun activity is to ride the Resort Monorail loop and hop off at each resort to take a look around. My family likes to do this at night. We then grab a Dole Whip from Capt. Cook's at Disney's Polynesian Resort to enjoy while watching the Electrical Water Pageant and Wishes Nighttime Spectacular from the Polynesian Beach. I am out of room for my answer, but please don't hesitate to write me back if you have any additional questions that I can assist you with.Best wishes for a magical trip, Nicolle!
    Happy Celebrating,
