Just booked my daughters 21st b-day trip

Hi, just booked at AKV (2 bedroom) for 1 week, June 3 - 10, 2013. What can I plan to make her trip special? She is turning 21. She loves Star Wars, and I am hoping it falls during that time again (last 2 weeks in May/first 2 weeks in June), if not we will change the dates. Thanks for any ideas/suggestions!

If she likes Star Wars I know probably getting there early to get fast passes for her to meet the celebrities that come would be great.

Don't know about her drinking habits but having a few drinks around the world if she wanted would be fun.

You could book a fireworks cruise either for Wishes or for Illuminations which would be a special treat.

Putting her name down on the reservation as it being her birthday will probably enhance any dining experience ya'll have.

If you want to spend the money the disney florist can put and in room celbration set up for when you get there.

Hope ya'll have a great time! It is always fun to celebrate anything in Disney!

Your all going to have a great time...we just celebrated my daughters 21st last September at WDW.....we let her pick the restaurant for her birthday dinner...She picked california grill.....we ate then watched the fireworks........at Epcot we ate and drank around the world..it was also the first weekend of the food and wine festival.....she looked at doing one of,the tours...but decided since it was a short trip she would rather relax and take it easy....

You picked a great time to go! The summer heat hasn't really hit yet, the summer afternoon thunderstorms come a bit later, the schools aren't out yet, the crowds are low!


For special occasions we've booked the Illuminations's Cruises and never been disappointed! You can book them with dinner, drinks or just dessert (you could order a special birthday cake to be served on board) that and fireworks, just for her!

Or have a special birthday cake delivered to the villa!

If she's into sweets as Wishes Dessert Party!

Sanaa is a lovely place for dinner, as is Cali Grill, Narcosse's, Yachtsmen... Depends on her likes!

You can get great discounts on boat rentals, segway tours of Epcot!

Wow, what great fun lies ahead!

How can you invest so much money on a vacation and be so clueless?
If we keep going to Disney we will be like Peter Pan and never grow up!

When a friend of mine and I took our girls to celebrate their 21st, we surprised them by packing some decorations and decorating the rooms (we each had a studio w our own daughters) when they were doing a quick liquor shop in the general store. We brought streamers, tablecloths, napkins, and other decor to hang from the mirrors, ceilings and around the closet doorways. They loved it and it was a fraction of the cost of using a company . Make sure to bring a roll of tape and that nothing is stuck on tight enough to leave any marks. We also celebrated in Teppan Edo with sushi (a fav of theirs) and saki bombs! As well as a GREAT night in Jellyrolls! Enjoy every minute of planning and celebrating
