    My son is graduating H.S. this May. I'd like to do something special in the park. Any ideas please?

    Hi Vivian,

    Please send your son BIG CONGRATULATIONS from all of us here at planDisney! A graduation is such an exciting time, and as a fellow mama of a member of the Class of 2021, I know you and your son both are feeling ALL the feelings. It hasn't been the senior year we all imagined it would be, and a magical visit to The Walt Disney World Resort to celebrate sounds like a wonderful idea! I'd love to share some tips to make it EXTRA memorable!

    First, don't forget to ask for complimentary "I'm Celebrating" buttons when you first arrive. Cast Members and even some Guests will love celebrating along with you! I'd also encourage you to be on the lookout for some adorable graduation merchandise or speak to a Dream Maker at Disney Floral and Gifts for that ideal gift which could not only add a touch of magic to your visit, but also make the perfect souvenir to remember your celebration. As for adding something special to your time in the parks, I would recommend making a dining reservation for a special dinner at a restaurant your son loves or someplace he's always wanted to try. Adding an adorable and delicious Mickey Mouse Celebration specialty cake would add the perfect finish to your meal, too! Want more ideas? You could also look into making a reservation for a unique experience from the Enchanting Extras Collection. From Star Wars to golf to Segway tours and lots of magical offerings in between, I'm sure you'll discover something he would find incredible! Finally, I love this idea from Disney Parks Blog about a Capture Your Moment photography session. A high school graduation is such a milestone in our kiddos' lives and having special photos to remember his accomplishment and your magical vacation would be something you could all cherish for years to come.

    However you decide to celebrate, Vivian, I hope it's something truly special. If we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip, please don't hesitate to come back and see us again!
