    We are coming to Disney October 21 for 7 days. This was my Daughters 16th birthday gift. Do they give you anything special for celebrating a birthday at disneyworld. Any suggestions what to do special on 1 day for her birthday..

    Hi Rhonda,

    What a special birthday celebration for your daughter! Upon checking in to your resort, you can ask for a "Happy Birthday" button for your daughter. She can wear that throughout her stay. If you have any dining reservations, be sure to let them know that she is celebrating her birthday. Often they will sprinkle the table in confetti and/or sing Happy Birthday to her.

    As far as something extra special, I have a few suggestions for you based on experiences that my kids have enjoyed:

    1) Wild Africa Trek - This incredible trek is by far one of my favorite experiences at Disney. I did this with my daughter in July and it was awesome.

    2) Parasailing - This exhilarating experience is a "must do" for thrill seekers. I surprised my son with this for his birthday this year and he can't stop talking about it.

    3) Dolphins in Depth - If your daughter likes dolphins, then she will love this experience.

    I hope this gives you a few ideas. If you would like more information, simply send me a follow-up question.

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation,
