My son turns 13 during our trip. In fact, by coincidence it happens to be on our Animal Kingdom day (If I gave him a choice, he would have chosen to be at HS on his bday, but the crowd calendars suggest that wouldn’t be wise.) I feel like this is a “big” birthday, because he’ll be a teenager… officially… So I want to do at least one special thing on this trip to celebrate. We tossed around the idea of taking him to Discovery Cove. His favorite animals are flamingos, and they have a “flamingo mingle” where you can feed them and walk amongst them. I know that would make his weird little heart so happy. But now our washing machine has died and we need to get a new one, so guess where that money has to come from
So I thought I’d ask you all for ideas, preferrably cheaper than Discovery Cove Is there anything special we could do at Animal Kingdom? He’ll be wearing his pin of course, anything else? We’ve also thought of Medeival Times (A favorite of mine from when I was a kid) but he isn’t so sure that’s his cup of tea. (It looks very loud, he says.)
edited to clarify: The special thing doesn’t need to be on his birthday/our animal kingdom day. His birthday actually usually falls on the first day of school for us here, so we rarely celebrate ON his b-day.
