    My son is turning 10 on May 23 and I wanted to *possibly* surprise him with a trip to this Magical World you often speak of. I'm looking to leave Thur May 23 (evening) & come back Sunday May 26. Where do we stay, where do we go

    Hi Stephanie!

    Thanks for visiting me online with your question.
    It's SO exciting to hear that you're thinking of surprising your son with a Birthday Trip to Walt Disney World!

    For a short stay, I'd recommend that you stay on-site at a Disney Resort Hotel with a Magic Your Way Vacation Package. The Disney Dining Plan offers fantastic savings and can even include Character Dining!

    There is so much for a boy your son's age to enjoy. From Lightning McQueen and Star Wars: Jedi Training Academy, to Test Track, Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean and even Dinosaur and the Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition! Every one of the four parks has something fantastic to appeal to his age group - and to you too!

    Choosing a place to stay is the fun part. Take a look at this Vacation Package Guide. Play around with your travel party, dates and budget and see what's recommended. Or, simply visit the Accommodations page and see what resort appeals to you. I have personal favourites and recommendations at all budget levels and will be happy to guide you further once you have a bit of an idea of what you have in mind for your family's experience.

    I hope you'll write me back and let me know a few options that you're leaning towards. I'll be thrilled to help you with your next steps in reserving the perfect package for YOUR family!

    I look forward to hearing from you again soon Stephanie!
    Wishing you a simply Magical time as you plan this fabulous, birthday surprise for your son!
