    Hi All! You have a wonderful forum and I love spending time looking around!

    We will be going to FL October 19-28 and it will be myself, my husband and my 13 year old step-daughter. My step-daughter has been to WDW roughly 9 times and has done most of the traditional things. She is a Disney lover through and through. I was able to go to some of the Disney parks for the first time in March and I also fell in love!

    I am looking for ideas of unique things to do that she maybe hasn't done before, but want to keep it a surprise for her. I looked into the Dinner with an Imagineer and that was all booked up. I know there has got to be other things out there that we can do, but I just am not sure what there is. We are not staying on a Disney property but have a car and are willing to travel. We have reservations at Chef Mickey's and Victoria & Albert's, but welcome any/all ideas. She had done the castle dining at MK so we aren't looking to do that.

    Thank you in advance for your ideas!!

    Well, there are some sports oriented things like hang gliding, and renting boats, and horse back riding. Is there anything like that she would like?

    Your daughter reads these replies you know









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Why yes, yes you can. Umm, but officer she slipped and since it was dark I didn't see it happen.

    Looking at the site you've got the option to do the dolphin experience and dive experience at Epcot.
    Also you've got the steam train tour - we did this a few years back and it was really good.
