    We are planning to visit WDW the weekend of my son's 17th birthday. Is there anything I can do/plan to make this weekend extra special for him? We will be staying in a moderate resort, will they be able to provide anything special for his birthday?

    Hi there, Kelly!

    I love hearing that your family will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort for your son's 17th Birthday! My son turned 17 last month and we told him he could pick any restaurant for dinner that evening and his choice was Boma at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. We had such a great time! He was wearing a Birthday button that we picked up at the front desk of the Resort hotel and the restaurant Cast Members wished him a Happy Birthday as they walked by our table as well.

    You can have a note added to your Resort hotel reservation either by calling the Walt Disney Travel Company or your travel agent so they are aware that your family is celebrating a birthday. It's always fun to get some extra "Happy Birthday" wishes!

    If you wanted to do something extra special, Disney Floral and Gifts has some pretty amazing options available that can be delivered directly to your Resort hotel room. Their Dream Makers are able to customize a gift for your son that will surely make his day special.

    Another option could be to plan one of the wonderful Events or Tours that are available all throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. There are many to choose from and depending on your son's interests, I think you may find several that might just fit the bill. My kids REALLY love the Epcot Seas Aqua Tour. Take a look at the link I put in and you'll see all that is available.

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question, Kelly, and I sure hope this helps with some ideas! Please let us know if we can help with any other questions you have as you continue planning.

    Wishing you and your family a Pixie Dusted vacation!
