    Hi, my name in Allison. I'm taking my boyfriend (he'll be 22) to WDW for his first time in June of 2019. He's not big on rides. Is there anything I should make sure we do to give him the best experience possible?

    Hi Allison!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your question brought back so many memories for me of the time I took my then-boyfriend (now husband) to Walt Disney World Resort for the first time! How exciting that you're planning a magical vacation next June. I'm honored to help you think of some must-dos that you and your boyfriend can enjoy.

    Two things I love to do while visiting Walt Disney World is eat and watch fireworks! I have an idea that combines both and is super romantic. I recommend making Advance Dining Reservations to California Grill located in Disney's Contemporary Resort. Not only will you have a delicious meal, you'll top your evening off with a spectacular view of the fireworks over Cinderella Castle from either the restaurant's lounge or observation deck!

    Another activity that might be fun to commemorate your boyfriend's first time visiting Mickey Mouse is to have a caricature done in Magic Kingdom Park. The talented caricature artists will love to draw the two of you! I suggest mentioning that it's your boyfriend's first Disney vacation, too. They might incorporate his inaugural visit into the drawing!

    Even though he is not a fan of attractions, I recommend each of you getting FastPass+ selections to Avatar Flight of Passage located in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. In my opinion, if he only does one attraction during your vacation, this should be it! He'll get to ride on his very own banshee through the beautiful world of Pandora!

    Allison, I hope you both have a magical vacation next June!
