    My 14yr old daughter and I will be going to Disney World June 9-16. This will be our first time. We plan on staying at the Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. I know there is a lot to do. Is there a must do for first timers? Or anything else you recommend?

    Hi Alicia!

    What an exciting mom and daughter trip! You two will have such an enchanting time creating memories together.  

    With so many wonderful and amazing things to experience, it is easy to become overwhelmed, but please don't.  All of the planning in the world won't prepare you for the unplanned, magical moments which always find their way into a Disney vacation.  Even with it being only you and your daughter, I would still recommend a character dining reservation.  It may sound silly, but it really is a wonderful part of the Disney experience and if you don't plan on standing in line at the park, it is a great way to meet some of your favorite friends.  Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is beautiful and one of my favorite properties.  If you have an early evening one night, I suggest watching a movie under the stars or catching the top of Epcot's fireworks from the beach along Barefoot Bay.  For a fun experience to pamper your inner princesses, I suggest making an appointment at one of the on-site salons for a manicure.  Casa De Belleza Salon at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort offers a basic manicure, priced very reasonably, or, for a little extra and a special Disney flare, you can book a manicure at Senses - A Disney Spa at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, with a Disney Signature Designs add-on package.

    Most importantly enjoy every moment of your wonderful vacation.  Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you plan.

    Have a great time!

    Magical Wishes,

    Lauren
