Mom And Daughter Resort Room

    April Asked

    We are coming to WDW in July for my daughter's Make-A-Wish and my son will be turning 6 while we are there. I would like to do something special for him especially because most of the activities are surrounded around my daughter. Any suggestions?

    Hi April,

    I know first hand what its like to have a child that necessitates a lot of attention while making sure siblings feel special & not left out. It can be very hard on your heart sometimes & you're an extra special mom for wanting to make his BD special for him. 

    WDW is the best place ever to celebrate a BD. Make sure you stop by a Guest Relations location & pick up a "Happy Birthday" button for him. I think that 6 is the perfect age for The Pirates League at Magic Kingdom.  Boys (& girls) are transformed into pirates & given their own pirate name. They learn to swash buckle & taught the official Pirate League Oath.  At 4 p.m. daily, all Pirates who joined the crew that day are invited to meet at the stage in Adventureland (across from Pirates of the Caribbean) & participate in the Parade of Pirates. Packages are $29.95 + tax. Reservations are strongly recommended & can be made beginning 180 days prior to your trip by calling 407-WDW-CREW.  MK theme park admission is also required.

    You could also spend some one-on-one time w/ him at Downtown Disney. Cools things for him to do there including The Lego Store; Once Upon a Toy; Characters in Flight ; customizing his own radio controlled vehicle at Ridemakerz & lunch at T-Rex Cafe (call 407-828-TREX to make reservations up to 180 days prior to your visit).
