Mom and daughter on Expedition Everest

    Derrick from IL Asked

    I'm planning a Disney vacation with my family & the grandparents. My wife is the mother of 2 boys(ages 6 & 3). I want to do something special for her while we're there(7/12 - 7/17). Can you recommend any place we should visit or do during our stay?

    Derrick,

    Good for you, acknowledging all that your wife does for your family!

    Here are some first steps;

    1. What can you afford? Set a budget, because you don't have to go broke showing her some appreciation.
    2. Don't Cut Her Out! If you send her on some activity you don't want the rest of the family doing something in a park that she may regret missing. Plan what you will do during that time too!
    3. What does she like? My wife loves a quick spa treatment, and time to relax by the pool without the kids pulling her six different directions at once. But maybe your wife is a speed junkie who needs a NASCAR fix? Consider her passions, and select that!
    So all that being said, here is what I would ask you to do;

    a. Send me an e-mail with ideas of what SHE likes. Relaxation, cuisine, shopping, excitement, or some other particular interest. I can help more from there.
    b. Plan a half-day for her where you watch the kids and she does something for her (spa, quiet pool with magazines, shopping, para-sailing, you name it!).

    Write me back with more info, and I will give you a few suggestions!

    Have a magical vacation!
