    My mum recently lost some members of our family and I want to organise something special for her during our October trip! I think she deserves something different. We've done desert parties, tours and before and are staying at the GF. Any ideas pls?

    Hi Katie Rebecca!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How thrilling that you are planning a special holiday for you and your mum. Sounds like you are well familiar with MINNIE of the fun and unique offerings, having already enjoyed tours and dessert parties before. So let me roll up my sleeves and put on Mickey's Sorcerer's hat because we need to come up with some FANTASMIC ideas for you!

    I know you said you've done tours before, but have you ever tried a VIP tour before? I've had my eye on the Ultimate Disney Classics VIP Tour for quite a while now just to be able to ride all my most beloved attractions and feel like a kid again. For foodie fans, the Taste of Magic Kingdom Park VIP Tour will wow your tastebuds and teach you all about the culinary approach to park dining...with lots of firsthand tasting!

    Since you will be staying at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, perhaps the Afternoon Tea at Grand Floridian's Garden View Tea Room will hit the spot. If that seems too much like home, then my suggestion is a unique spa experience, the Character Couture at Senses Spa at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort. I've experienced this firsthand and was literally transformed into a Belle from Beauty and the Beast inspired look. It's classy, fun, and quite entertaining. Naturally, they also offer more standard spa treatments, but the Character Couture is a one-of-a-kind Disney makeover.

    What's explosive, colorful, and a sweet treat? Why, the Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise! I know you said you've tried a dessert party before, but this one fuses together adventure on the Seven Seas Lagoon, Magic Kingdom fireworks, and delectable desserts and drinks. 

    I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the incredible experiences available at Walt Disney World in the Enchanting Extras Collection. Peruse that list and see what jumps off the screen! Perhaps it will be Dining with an Imagineer at Citricos for one-on-one conversations with a Disney Imagineer. Or may it will be getting to see behind the scenes at Disney's Animal Kingdom with the Savor the Savanna: Evening Safari Experience.

    The more I've looked into this, the more I realize how many awesome experiences abound at Walt Disney World...and so many of them I've never even tried before! Exploring these options has made me so excited for you and your mum, and I cannot wait to find out what you choose.

    Katie Rebecca, we at the Disney Parks Moms Panel would love to be pen pals with you as you continue planning for your magical holiday. If you'd like more ideas on how to let the pixie dust fly for your mum, please drop us a line anytime!
