    We are taking our grandchildren, boy 12, girl 9 to Disney World June 11-17. What special events would be good to book in advance for their age?

    Hi, Patricia!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited for you and your grandkids. A visit to Walt Disney World Resort is an unforgettable experience. My kids are around the same ages and they love special food events.

    I recently had a chance to take part in Ferrytale Wishes: A Fireworks Dessert Cruise. It's a fun cruise around the Seven Seas Lagoon with delicious food and drinks leading up to the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular over Magic Kingdom Park.

    If that event is not available, I highly recommend the VIP experience at Epcot during the IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party. The view of the IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth show is stunning and the food is absolutely delicious.

    You can also keep up with any new events that might sound like fun by reading the updates in the Disney Parks Blog. It's how I find out firsthand about new and exciting events to enhance an already magical visit.

    Please let me know if I can help you with any additional questions before your visit!

Meet the Panelist: Jen, Missouri

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
