    We are visiting Disney World with newly adopted children to celebrate the beginning of our forever family. We see lots of special offers for birthdays, but nothing relating to our special day. Do you know of anything special for this type of celebration?

    Dear Daniel,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your amazing question about celebrating your forever family! First of all, I send you all a massive congratulations on your journey! I know this must be an incredibly special time for all of you, and what more magical place to celebrate than the Walt Disney World Resort!

    The first suggestion I have is to be sure to pick up "I'm Celebrating!" buttons for your entire family, free at Guest Relations and at many other locations. You can write in exactly what you're celebrating, and Cast Members and guests will comment and congratulate you all day long!

    You might also consider a special gift package delivered to your room by Disney Floral & Gifts! Depending on your children's ages and interests, you can select packages that work for your family!

    I would definitely order some personalized t-shirts ahead of time also, with your special message (what about a quote from Lilo & Stitch or another Disney movie that celebrates family?)!

    A special meal might be absolutely perfect also, and you could continue the Lilo & Stitch theme at 'Ohana! After all, "'ohana means family, and family means no one gets left behind!" 

    Those are just a few ideas to get you started! A magical cake delivery can be arranged at many Table-Service restaurants as well, and that might be really fun!

    Hope that helps with your magical vacation planning! Congrats again!

    - Jan K.
