    Erin Asked

    I have been to Disney World twice with my parents, as a child, Now I'm planning a trip for my 21st Birthday with my Parents and Boyfriend, who is 20 years old. He has never been. How can I make it special and exiting for him even though he is an adult?

    Hi Erin! Celebrating your 21st Birthday and your boyfriend's 1st visit will be so much fun. You'll both want to pick up your free celebratory pins - for your birthday, and his 1st visit.  You'll find them at all resort check-in desks or at guest relations at each theme park. Wear them throughout your trip - you may just get some special attention from the Cast Members.

    You need to kind of gauge whether or not your boyfriend is going to be open to character experiences, or whether he would prefer to stick to more 'adult' experiences.  Would he be interested in being transformed into one of Jack Sparrow's crew?  If so, a visit to The Pirate's League at the Magic Kingdom might be a lot of fun!  There are also many great sporting options, like golf, fishing, parasailing, Check this link for Sports & Recreation options at Walt Disney World for more info.

    You'll definitely want to book dining reservations - check the online Disney Dining website to read descriptions of all the restaurants.  I would be happy to give you some recommendations if you want to write me back with your likes/wants.  Finally, if you'd like to have a special in-room welcome or gift basket for him, check out Disney Floral & Gifts to see all of the amazing things they can do and personalize to make his first visit to Walt Disney World one he'll never forget - perhaps a personalized set of Mickey Ears would be the perfect touch?

    I'm limited by space, but would be happy to assist you further -- just write me back with any other questions you have. Have a magical day!
