I'm thinking the CM's would get a kick out of seeing someone my Mom's age having that..so that's a must!

That is a long slow line though. The Pooh ride is also cute, but rather far back in the park. You could do lunch at the Hungry Bear instead and have a nice relaxing meal by the water, then head over to Pooh.

At DCA, I'd stop by the Animation building, Monsters, and maybe Aladdin if it was running. To me, DL would be the priority though because of its history.

Oh, a picture with a character would be a fun souvenier to take home.

Almost forgot about the train, thank you!! We're always so crazy getting the rides in when we're there with the kids, we miss it most of the time. My Mom would LOVE it

Mickey Ears for sure and I agree that the classic would be best - those are my favorite too I'll call the hotel and maybe see if I can have them waiting for her at check-in!

These are all wonderful - thank you!!! Anyone have suggestions or thoughts for dinner. I'd like to take her to see WOC - has anyone done the premier dining at Ariel's Grotto or Wine Country Trat. and is it worth it?
