    Hi Moms, going to WDW end of September and will be celebrating my mom's 70th. Any recommendations for something special to do? Maybe at Food and Wine Fest? Can be with or without kids (ages 5 and 9).

    Hi, Hilary! It's so nice to see you again here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! And please extend our warmest (and quite early!) birthday wishes to your mother. Let's help you plan a sensational 70th for her at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    I love birthdays! My family knows that one of the best gifts they can give me is a visit to Walt Disney World, and it never, ever disappoints. I proudly pin one of the free birthday buttons to my shirt and grin like the Cheshire Cat every time a Cast Member gives me a birthday greeting. Be sure to pick one up for your mom! You can get the buttons at the front desk of your Resort hotel, or at any Guest Relations location and most retail shops in the Theme Parks.

    Sampling the wares at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival sounds like a fabulous way to spend your mom's birthday! And for an extra-special treat, you can sign her up for one of the seminars or demonstrations during the Festival. She can even sit in on an appearance by a celebrity chef! Afterward, she can have some fun with the grandkids at the Festival by joining the search for everyone's favorite Little Chef with Remy's Ratatouille Hide & Squeak Scavenger Hunt.

    How about a little pampering for Mom's special day? You can arrange a soothing spa treatment at Senses - A Disney Spa and Salon at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort. Then when she's all relaxed and rejuvenated, gather the whole crew to hit a Theme Park for the afternoon. While you're there, be sure to stop and pose for some family photos with a Disney PhotoPass photographer. Your mom will love such a special souvenir of her day.

    One more thing - don't forget dinner! Whether Mom wants an elegant meal or a fun-filled dinner show, you can find a dining experience to suit her taste. And to top it off, you can order a birthday cake and have it delivered right to your table. It's a perfect end to her Disney birthday!

    I hope this helps you plan a magical celebration for your mom, Hilary. Please come see us again real soon!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

    Kathy K.

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
