    Can you recommend a great “great” or “ special” thing to do for a 50th birthday celebration? We will be in Disney on ger birthday.

    Hi Patti,

    So, someone is celebrating a milestone birthday at Walt Disney World Resort. How wonderful! Here are a few things you could do to celebrate 50 magical years:
    • Reserve a private Illuminations:Reflections of Earth cruise for your party of up to 10 passengers by calling (407) WDW-PLAY, or (407) 939-7529. The water craft will park just inside the bridge nearest the International Gateway to Epcot. The boat will be stocked with a variety of non-alcoholic beverages and snacks for you to enjoy. You can even call room service at Disney's Yacht Club Resort in advance to order a birthday cake, if you like. You will be so close to the fireworks display that you will feel the warmth of the pyrotechnics. The captain of your boat will decorate the water craft with balloons and a "Happy Birthday" banner if you let them know in advance that someone is celebrating a birthday. 
    • Stop by Guest Relations at the first theme park you visit to pick up a complimentary birthday button. If the birthday girl wears the button throughout your vacation, you'll be amazed at the wonderful and widespread good wishes she will receive.
    • Send her for some pampering at Senses - A Disney Spa at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort. I'm a big fan of the Rose Renewal Facial. Or, if she'd prefer some girl talk during her spa time, book simultaneous pedicures for her and a friend. I did that with my sister and niece a few years ago and we had the best time. The pedicure room at this spa is simply enchanting.
    Take plenty of pictures to remember this momentous vacation. The birthday girl is going to want to remember this magical trip forever. 

    Best wishes,
