    Hi I’ve planned a surprise birthday trip for my soon to be 10 year old twins! This is their first trip to Disney, wanted to know if I can download a surprise your going to Disney letter? Or if anyone has any great birthday plan suggestions?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Veronica!

    It is a pleasure to answer your question and help you plan a magical birthday celebration and first visit for your 10-year-old twins! I am also planning a surprise mother and daughter Disney trip for my almost 9-year-old and I really cannot wait to see the look on her face when she finds out.

    Although there is no official material you can download to surprise them, you can always use your imagination and create a reveal that they will never forget. When my daughter turned 5-years-old we surprised her with a birthday visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. I had made reservations at Cinderella’s Royal Table because she loves the Disney Princesses, so the evening before we left home I casually asked her to come check the mail box with me. Much to her surprise she found a royal invitation to have lunch with the princesses inside Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park. She was so excited that she barely slept that night! My husband helped me make the invitation and it turned out perfect! Ahead of our visit I ordered a Disney Princess autograph book from Disney Floral & Gifts and when we arrived at our Disney Resort hotel it was there waiting for her as a present from the Disney Princesses.

    I personally love celebrating special occasions at Magic Kingdom Park so because it is their first visit this would be the perfect place to be. I recommend making breakfast reservations at Chef Mickey’s, where you can dine with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald Duck and Pluto. This would be an amazing start to their special day because the offerings on the buffet are kid friendly and the characters come greet you at your table! You can meet the Fab Five all in one place! This restaurant is located just a short 5-minute walk from Magic Kingdom Park at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. After breakfast I would head over to the park for a fun day enjoying several attractions that kids their age love, such as Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain and more! Stop by Guest Relations at park entrance to pick up a complimentary birthday button and let everyone celebrate with your twins! You never know what kind of special pixie dust may come their way. To end a perfect birthday celebration at the park, do not miss Happily Ever After fireworks – and if you would like to make it extra special, you can even book a Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace.

    I hope this helps you plan a magical birthday visit, Veronica! Please stop by with more questions!
