    We are surprising our dds 7 & 2 w/a trip to Disney 3/31-4/6, staying at PO Riverside (1st time) & celebrating d's 8th bday. Have been in April before, but forget - shorts & shirts good? I think we should be able to swim/do waterpks. What is m

    Hi Cristin,


    April is a wonderful time to visit Walt Disney World with highs in the mid 80's and lows in the mid 60's.  I would pack shorts and t-shirts but also a light jacket for the early mornings and evenings.  I think that doing a Water Park would be great fun or using the pool at Port Orleans is fantastic as well.  My family loves Port Orleans Riverside, and find the Riverside Mill Food Court to be a great stop to eat for any meal.  Since you will be celebrating a birthday, make sure you stop by Guest Relations at any theme park for a "Happy Birthday" button so Cast Members and other guest can share in her big day.  You may want to check out Disney Floral & Gifts for an extra special gift in the room for your princess.  You can mention her birthday if you make Advanced Dining Reservations so she will have a special dessert as well!  Make sure you go to Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival and check out the wonderful Disney character topiaries.  This year there will be eight foot tall floral Sorcerer Mickey topiary that is not to be missed!  Your daughters will also love seeing Bambi's Butterfly House and the Pixie Hollow Fairy Gardens.  I hope you have a wonderful vacation and wish your daughter a magical birthday from all of us at the Walt Disney World Mom's Panel!
