Mom and daughter on Expedition Everest

    My sister and I want to set up something nice for my mom and my step dad while we are on our vacation (12/22-12/28) We either want to find something special for them to do together each day or just one night of togetherness on the resort. Any ideas?

    Hi Haley! What a sweet idea to do something extra special for your parents during your vacation. Let's dive right in with a few ideas!

    Spark some romance with dinner at the AAA Five-Diamond rated Victoria & Albert's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Be sure to tell them to visit the amazing Christmas tree and gingerbread house in the lobby, too! Or book a specialty cruise of Seven Seas Lagoon near Magic Kingdom or to view Epcot's Illuminations: Reflections of Earth nighttime spectacular.

    Send them on an adventure with Wild Africa Trek at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, go horseback riding or take archery lessons at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, or try jetskis and parasailing at Sammy Duvall's Watersports Centre behind Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    Give them a peek "backstage" with a tour. One of the most popular is Keys to the Kingdom, an all-day exclusive look at some of the secret spots at Walt Disney World.

    Here's a list of more special things to do on the Disney website. I hope this helps kickstart some ideas for you, Haley. Wishing your family a magical vacation!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
