    We will be staying at the Disney Resort Campgrounds in our Coach. This trip will be for our daughters 8th birthday. We want to do something special but have already done the princess experience 2 times. Do you have any other suggestions to make her day??

    Hi Tammy,

    I can't think of a better place to celebrate your daughter's 8th birthday!

    As you will be staying at Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground during your visit, perhaps you could consider making the most of the recreational activities available at this Resort.

    If you daughter is a budding Merida, you could make a reservation for the Fort Wilderness Archery Experience where Guests 7 years of age and up can learn how to hold and fire a compound bow in this 90-minute archery program. Reservations are recommended and can be made up to 180 days in advance by calling (407) WDW-PLAY, or (407) 939-7529.

    Alternatively, if your daughter is an animal lover, you could take her for a Pony Ride or Wagon Ride at the Tri-Circle-D Ranch. Carriage Rides are also available should you wish to enjoy an activity with your daughter. Each horse-drawn carriage ride costs $45 and trots along for 25 minutes. Reservations are recommended and can be made up to 180 days in advance by calling (407) WDW-PLAY, or (407) 939-7529.

    Last but not least, if your daughter enjoys sports, you could book Sammy Duvall's Parasailing over at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made by calling (407) 939-0754. Flights are available every 30 minutes, 7 days a week (during business hours and as weather permits). 

    I do hope that my suggestions have given you some ideas Tammy and I hope that your daughter has a very happy birthday.
