    Staying@ disney 5/21-25 Im bringing my 13YO niece and 11YO nephew for their 1st time. my 6 YO has gone 5x before. Most of this trip is my treat. So I would love to do something special for all 3 kids but I am on a pretty tight budget. Any suggestions?thx

    Hi Josie!

    How wonderful to be able to share the Magic of Disney with your niece and nephew for the first time.  I love taking family or friends on their first visits.  Their expressions when they feel the fantasy come alive are always unforgettable.

    I was amazed by how much my family really enjoyed spending time at Downtown Disney during our last vacation.  There is so much to do for everyone.  You can enjoy a delicious meal while bowling at Splitsville Luxury Lanes, catch a movie at the AMC Movies at Downtown Disney 24, or have a bird's eye view from the Characters in Flight balloon.  All of these offer an affordable way to add some excitement to your trip.

    Another fun experience, which is often over-looked, are the miniature golf courses on property.  Winter Summerland and Fantasia Gardens and Fairways both offer delightful courses for any experience level.  

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation! Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.  We are here to help!

    Magical Wishes,
