Do you know what some people find to be the scariest, yet most rewarding thing in the world to be? Becoming a parent!
While it’s possible to plan a Disney vacation (especially with our help) and decide what restaurants you want to make advanced dining reservations for, which hotel is best for your family to stay at, or what transportation you want to take to and from the airport now that Magical Express is gone (RIP, we miss you), planning our every moment of your child’s life just isn’t possible. And there’s no ultimate guide for how to be a parent either! With Father’s Day right around the corner, if you’ve got a new Dad in your life, check out these gift ideas to make them feel even more appreciated on their special day.
We’re aware Christmas isn’t any time extremely soon, but that hasn’t stopped us from seeing new ornaments in the parks! So why not give Dad a gift that he can already picture where it’ll go during the holiday season?
This Mickey Mouse ”Best Disney Dad” Figural Ornament is $ 22.99 on shopDisney and features Mickey Mouse next to a big trophy that says “Best Disney Dad!” If your Dad wants to keep it around all year, it’s freestanding, so it could sit on a desk as well!

LOTS of Dads are Star Wars fans, so even though the franchise features one of the not so great Dads in Disney history (yes, Darth Vader, we’re talking about you), the new Dad in your life may love this Darth Vader Father of the Year Two-Tone Coffee Mug!
