    My 12 year old daughter will be turning 13 while we are at Disney World next month. She has asked if we can do a special mother-daughter experience. Do you have any suggestions that would be special and memorable for a girl her age?

    Hi Hilary,

    Absolutely! Below you'll find a list of five very special ways to celebrate birthdays with older kids:

    1. Plan to visit one of the Disney Spas! You can book mother & daughter manicures and pedicures, facials or massages. She will feel like absolute royalty!
    2. Book Disney's Wild Africa Trek, it will take her on a 3-hour safari expedition at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park
    3. The Surfing Programs at Typhoon Lagoon and splashtacular adventures at Sammy Duvall's Watersports Centre are instant favorites with teens too!
    4. If she's a Star Wars fan, the new Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney's Hollywood Studios is the ideal place to meet Chewbacca and encounter Kylo Ren
    5. If life under the sea is what she yearns for, there's simply no better way to enjoy the underwater wonderland of the Caribbean Coral Reef, a 5.7-million-gallon saltwater aquarium, than by experiencing the Epcot Seas Adventures – Aqua Tour. She need not be SCUBA-certified to participate in this tour

    Did you Know? Planning for Tween and Teens can be a completely seamless experience!

    Wishing your daughter an unforgettable birthday celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort!
