    We are planning to take our son to D.W. in June for his senior gift from us. He is 18 years old. In Aug. he will be leaving to join the Air Force for six years, so we would really like for this trip to be a memorable one for him. Any suggestions?

    Hi Meichelle,

    First of all, congratulations to your son on his upcoming graduation! That is such a special moment in his life and I'm sure he will treasure the memories of that day as well as the ones you create on this magical trip for him.

    In addition to all the fun in the theme parks, I have ideas for some extra experiences that could be icing on the cake. If he is up for something that will make him soar to new heights, plan a parasailing excursion at Sammy Duvall's Watersports at Disney's Contemporary Resort. I have done this a couple of times and it is a truly unique experience with spectacular views of the Magic Kingdom, Seven Seas Lagoon, and the resorts around it. Another activity high in the sky is Characters in Flight - operated by Aerophile at Downtown Disney. This particular experience is not for the faint at heart, but is definitely an exciting one for those that can handle it. It is a tethered balloon that flies up to 400 feet above Downtown Disney. Keep in mind that this is an activity that could be cancelled due to high winds or inclement weather.

    Speaking of Downtown Disney, there are some fantastic entertainment venues that might be fun to celebrate at including House of Blues or Raglan Road. There is also La Nouba, a Cirque du Soleil show that is simply out of this world.

    May you be able to create some lasting memories to treasure all ways and good luck to him in his future endeavors!
