Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- While this is my 18 year old daughter's 6th trip to DW (just went in Feb), we are going back in May for 2 reasons: she is graduating from HS and her dad (my husband) died suddenly April 2nd. Any suggestions on what I can do to make this trip extra special

- Hi Michelle. I am sitting here at my keyboard and just thinking. I could give you the best rides, attractions, restaurants and shows to see at Walt Disney World, but it just doesn't feel right.
You and your daughter are celebrating life and at the same time mourning the death of someone close. I have been to Walt Disney World a few times in similar situations. To be honest, I don't think I remember what I have done during those trips. Visiting Walt Disney World after my grandmother's death was especially hard. I started crying when we were purchasing our park tickets because we were buying one ticket less. Thankfully the cast member pretended that he didn't notice.
Normally, I would be advising people to visiting Walt Disney World to plan, plan and plan some more. But for you and your daughter, I suggest taking it easy and to slow and to go where the wind takes you. I would plan a nice day at one of Walt Disney World's spas, and a few nice dinners. The Walt Disney World Florist department (407-827-3505 ) can help you plan a lovely high school graduation gift basket to be delivered to your room.
This trip will be special because it is happening during a very important time in her life. Have a magical and memorable trip.
