    Hello, the trip is really close we leave in 7 days. Last min planning. my 20 year old and 14 yr old daughter have cancer I have spoke with there dr. and they said they are safe to go. is there anything they can be a part of to make it more special?

    Hi Terri!

    My heart goes out to you! I am so happy to hear that you'll have the opportunity to spend magical moments at Walt Disney World. There are very few places in the world so magical and special where family memories can be made.

    While the selections to appear in parades and special events are completely random and can't be arranged in advance, there are a few things that you may want to consider during your trip.

    First, the Mini Portrait Sessions by Disney Fine Art and Photography only take less than an hour and can capture your family at special locations like the Grand Floridian or Polynesian. The out of pocket cost is about $150, but it may be worth considering - especially if family portraits are something you'll cherish for a long time to come.

    Another wonderful way to celebrate your family trip could be a special dinner at one of Disney's signature restaurants like Narcoossee's at the Grand Floridian. Then stroll along the beach of the resort and enjoy Wishes as seen from the resort. Take a little time enjoying the resort and each other.

    Last but not least, stop by Cinderella's Wishing Well, make a wish to honor your family, and toss in your coin. Share a  few words of love to celebrate your family. It may be a quiet moment from your trip that can make you smile in the years to come. As a bonus, the coins are collected and donated to children's charities - maybe your donation to them will be of help to others too.

    Hope this helps. Enjoy your family trip!
