    I would like to plan a magical experience for my 15 year daughter

    Hi Lilly,

    Welcome to planDisney! I am always delighted to greet a fellow North Carolinian!

    As a mom of twin girls who will be 15-years old this year, your question warms my heart. The happy news is that your daughter is the perfect age to enjoy some special time in the parks and resorts.

    First things first, I would suggest booking a vacation package at a Disney Resorts Collection resort hotel. Our girls adore Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. On our last visit, we loved walking to Magic Kingdom from Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Those walks back to the resort were so special. A magical thing happened - we talked!

    As you plan your advanced dining reservations, I have to recommend dinner at California Grill. The views of Magic Kingdom from the restaurant are spectacular. The food and service are also wonderful. We always request a window table. This is truly our favorite, super special dining experience for dinner. For breakfast, we always stop by Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera. Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck all decked out in their artistic best are so much fun.

    Check to see if the spas are open at the time of your trip. If so, you could try a visit to Senses - A Disney Spa & Salon at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort. And, review the Enchanting Extras Collection to see other special experiences that your daughter might enjoy. Check carefully, if you sense that your daughter might be skilled in the Force, consider building a lightsaber at Savi's Workshop. My girls thought this experience was pretty amazing!

    As you continue to plan, just remember that you have time to consider how to make your trip magical from beginning to end. Don't forget Disney PhotoPass Service. There are a number of ways that you can capture some unforgettable memories. We always take a photo at each park and we do our best to smile for the cameras on attractions! Finally, consider ordering from Disney Floral & Gifts. The first time we ordered balloons for our girls, their expressions were just priceless. 

    Lilly, I am sending some pixie dust your way trusting that you will plan the perfect magic for your daughter!

    Magic and memories,
