    So stuck! While st DW I will be celebrating my 30th bday on 11/29. I dont know what are good options to celebrate. I havent even decieded if I want a "date night" with the DH or family night with the kids and Gma. I would LOVE any suggestion.

    Heather,

    My family has a vacation saying:

    This is supposed to be a fun vacation for EVERYONE!

    That means you too!

    So I would recommend three options;

    1. Have a date night. Let Grandma (or the Child Activity Centers if she is not available) watch the kids, while you and your husband enjoy a nice dinner out. You could go elegant/romantic at somewhere like the California Grill or Citricos, or you could have some fun by hitting a more exotic choice in the Epcot World Showcase. For even more you could combine a show at Cirque du Soleil and dinner at Bongos. That sends you to Downtown Disney, which means shopping might just have to happen along the way!
    2. Have a fun family celebration. Go to Whispering Canyon Cafe, Hoop Dee Doo Review, or maybe 'Ohana for a family celebration that can still elevate your experience and allow your whole family to be there for the ride.
    3. Be different. Say adios to the classic experiences and do something off the beaten path. Park the kids as suggested in the first suggestion, but instead of a classic table service dining experience, go be a pair of kids. Go to a park and ride roller coasters, eat food that is bad for you, act like 10 year olds, and have a blast! Or make it an afternoon celebration and do something out of the ordinary like the exotic car experiences at the Walt Disney World Speedway!
    So these are three ideas, with a few suggestions buried in each. Write me back with which of these kinds of celebrations you want to enjoy, give me more information on what you like to do related to that, and I can come up with more specific options!

    Have a magical vacation!
