26TH Birthday

I'm taking my daughter for the first time for her 26th birthday in September/October she doesn't drink alcohol and doesn't know about the trip until we arrive at the airport.

Any reccomendations for what to do for her birthday please?

I suggest trying for Afternoon Tea at the Grand Floridian. It's a very relaxing and fun experience whether or not you like tea. Other beverages are available.

There are several fixed price teas from which to choose, some for two with or without alcohol. Those are somewhat pricey at around $150-$175 and will leave you stuffed.

There are also some more modest teas for one person that are more reasonably priced. I think the ones we ordered were $29.95 each.

We had cheeses and fruit, finger sandwiches and then a choice of strawberries and cream, English trifle or three pastries to finish with a pot of tea for each.

If staying in a Disney resort, be sure to mention at check-in that you're celebrating her birthday. She'll get a button with her first name on it, and you can get an "I'm Celebrating" one for yourself. The CM will write nicely on it "My daughter's birthday."

She should wear her button while out and about as CM's who see it are supposed to wish the wearer a happy birthday. Also, she may get free treats at some restaurants.

Crystal Palace is especially fun. I love the birthday card I was given, signed by Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger.

Thank you it isn't till September 2017 but we have never been before and she has autism so i'm trying to make this trip so special for her as she loves everything disney.
We are staying at the carribean beach resort for 14 nights and have a 14 day park pass, i was going to take her to universal but she only likes the simpsons not Harry Potter or that so it would be alot of money just for the simpsons.
I was going to order her a cake if that was possible and thank you for mentioned the birthday badge as i never knew about that.
I think she would love the signed birthday card at Crystal palace so that might be her birthday breakfast treat.

On holiday she loves anything to do with animals, i know she will love the parades and i've read somewhere about a halloween party which she would love to attend too.

Like i said she isn't as mature as most people her age group and has way to many disney movies so this is my treat for her birthday to take her to walt disney world.

That sounds wonderful! What a wonderful, very very long trip! That's a dream for me!!!! It sounds like she might really enjoy character meals. If she is a Princess fan, I would spring for Cinderella's Table. I haven't done it, but the reviews are good. It's expensive, but I think it could really make her trip to eat in the castle. The reservations can be tough to get, but you could assign a travel agent? or get lots of help here.

I'll keep thinking of other ideas too, but if she is a huge Disney movie fan, I think Character meets might be just the thing to make her trip really special.

CP is our favorite character meal buffet. Great character interaction and better food than at most other character meals, I think.

Besides, CP is such a cheery place to start your day with its light, bright interior.

If you can drag out of bed early and can get an 8:00 ADR, do that. The CM's there do a very cute little welcome chant to open the restaurant, but you must be there by 8:00, because they do this little opening ceremony at 8:00 on the dot.

And, there's a little garden plot across from the entrance where Mary Poppins may be once you've finished eating. We've had some very fun meets with her there.
