    How can I help my girls celebrate their graduation? They are 17 and 18, and I have already contacted disney floral and gifts to give them an in room celebration. I want to make their first trip to disney world very magical, but I am not going with them.

    Hi Mary -

    We are in exactly the same boat. My 17 year old daughter and two of her girlfriends are heading to WDW in a few weeks to celebrate their high school graduation. My daughter has been to WDW countless time with the family, but this is her first trip on her own. It's a BIG milestone.

    This group of girls are big foodies, so as their graduation gift, we're treating them to dinner at the Chef's Table at the uber-posh Victoria & Albert's restaurant in the Grand Floridian. This is a giant splurge, but it's a great way to celebrate. Another good choice would be the California Grill in the Contemporary resort during the Wishes fireworks show. Depending on their personalities, the Hoop Dee Doo Revue or even a character meal could be great fun.

    If you're looking for other fun and special things to do, you may want to consider a backstage tour. Most of these are only open to guests ages 16 and up, so it will certainly feel like a grown-up thing to do. You could also book them a spa treatment as a treat.

    If the girls are sporty, you could arrange for them to go parasailing or water skiing at the Contemporary resort. These are terrific ways to take advantage of the Florida sunshine.

    I'm happy to provide more detail about any of these options, just let me know what you need.
