    My family will be traveling in September to celebrate Gottcha Day to celebrate the day we adopted our daughter. She is now 7. We have been to Disney 3 times with her. Any ideas on something new and special we can do with her.

    Hello Catherine, First of all, on behalf of all of us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, happy early Gotcha Day to you and your daughter! I can't thing of a better place to celebrate this momentous day of becoming a family than Walt Disney World. I have a couple of special ideas in mind.

    My first suggestion would be doing a tandem parasailing adventure with Sammy Duvall Watersports at Disney's Contemporary Resort. This exhilarating experience is truly one of a kind with it amazing views of Magic Kingdom as you float over Bay Lake. 

    If that seems a bit daring for your taste, then maybe a special spa day at Senses, the Disney Spa at the Grand Floridian Resort. They have a special Kids Menu of Services and the most adorable Mad Hatter pedicure chair for the younger clientele. This would perfectly compliment having tea with your adorable daughter at My Disney Girl's Perfectly Princess Tea Party or lunch at Grand Floridian Cafe.

    If you would like a more relaxed way to celebrate, how about dessert for dinner and then a movie under the stars. You could head over to the Beach Club Resort and have dinner at Beaches and Cream Soda Shop and then stay for the complimentary nightly screening of a Disney movie on the beach. Depending on where you are staying, this might also be offered at your resort as well. I personally think that it can't get more magical than watching a classic Disney movie AT Walt Disney World with a star to wish on right above you!

    Happy memory making,
