    My daughter is turning 10 on 8/18/16 and we will be at Disney. Any suggestions for a really cool and unique experience?

    Stacie, I am so excited for your daughter! Not only is her double-digit birthday near, but it's almost time to head to the most magical place on Earth! My #DisneyTween, Abby, celebrated her tenth birthday at Walt Disney World Resort last year, so I thought I would share how we celebrated the big day and also provide a little "future Panelist" consultation for more ideas.

    Last year, we spent the day doing as many of her favorite things as possible at her favorite places, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Magic Kingdom Park. To make sure we were able to ride her favorite attractions that evening, I hopped on My Disney Experience 60 days in advance to make her "must-dos" our FastPass+ selections. We also made a special visit to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa that afternoon, where we enjoyed a pedicure at the Senses - A Disney Spa before celebrating with the hilarious Tremaine stepsisters (a huge hit with #DisneyTweens!) at Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner.

    Abby the "future Panelist" wanted to share these great ideas with you:
    * Wild Africa Trek would have her roaring into her tween years
    * Shopping, dinner, and La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil at Disney Springs
    * The Garden View Tea Room is a tween-approved option for the spa afternoon

    Stacie, please give your daughter a big "Happy Birthday!" from all of us here!
