    I am planning a suprise birthday weekend for my twin girls who will be turning 10 in Feb. Do you have any suggestions for winter activities or special events to make our trip magical? Also, where is a fun place to eat outside the parks? Thanks

    Hey Jennifer!  What a great surprise that will be for your daughters to celebrate their 10th birthday in the "Happiest Place on Earth!"  I recently experienced the Pirate & Pals Fireworks Voyage with my family and we had the best time on this swashbuckling adventure as we sailed the Seven Seas Lagoon! I think boys and girls alike would enjoy this voyage complete with scrumptious confections in a whimsical pirate-themed setting, a send off from Captain Hook and Mr. Smee, and dazzling fireworks!  Follow this link to learn more about the Pirate & Pals Fireworks Voyage. Downtown Disney, an entertainment district, has many exciting activities for a birthday weekend. You may consider a visit to Disney Quest Indoor Interactive Theme Park or a ride on Characters in Flight, which takes you up in a giant tethered balloon 400 feet above Downtown Disney. In addition, your daughters may enjoy getting a magical makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or creating their own custom t-shirt at Disney's Design-a-Tee. Follow this link to see all of the amazing opportunities at Downtown Disney. My favorite dining locations for a birthday celebration include 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort, Beaches & Cream Soda Shop at Disney's Beach Club Resort (make sure to order the Kitchen Sink), T-REX Café located in Downtown Disney, or Rainforest Café located in Downtown Disney or Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park. Another idea to make their birthday extra special is to purchase an in-room celebration from Disney Floral & Gifts. Please let me know if I can assist you in any other way! Sending pixie-dusted wishes for a Magical Birthday Trip!
    Happy Celebrating,
