    I am planing a huge trip to Disney World for my dad 60th birthday. There will be a group of 15, 8 Adults and 7 children ranging from the ages of 1 to 14. Any advice on something special to do for/with my dad for his birthday? His favorite park is M.K.

    Hi, Tracy!

    What a wonderful way to celebrate your dad's 60th birthday!

    We did something similar for my father-in-law's 70th this past summer, so I know exactly how you feel about wanting something really special for your dad's big day.

    There are many things that you can do to help make his birthday spectacular, but I suggest that you being by planning the day around dinner. Because your dad's favorite park is Magic Kingdom, consider booking a reservation at the hottest new restaurant on Walt Disney World property (which just happens to be located within Magic Kingdom) Be Our Guest Restaurant. You can top off your dinner by trying the grey stuff ("it's delicious!") but can also have a custom cake delivered to the restaurant as well.

    If you really want to commemorate not just your dad's big day, but also the family celebration, consider an affordable yet beautiful Mini Portrait Session with a professional photographer from Disney Fine Art Photography & Video. Ours included shots of the entire family, plus couples, grandkids, grandparents with grandkids and individual families, all in about an hour. We were so pleased that we were able to capture that particular group at that particular moment in time, with no hassle at all.

    Of course, be sure to pick up a complimentary Celebration Button at Guest Services, too, so that Cast Members and Guests alike can wish your dad a happy birthday all day and night. THAT will make him feel special,too!

    Send more questions as you think of them, Tracy; we love to help! And be sure to wish your dad a very happy 60th birthday from all of us on the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
