I'm curious about the Floral Experience where a Disney florist gives you lessons on how to do one of their floral arrangements. Has anyone done this, and if so, was it something a 10 yr. old girl would like?

I can tell you that my daughter started making and learning how to do flower arrangements already at the age of 5 years old and it is still something that she loves to do. I used to own my own flower shop which is the reason my daughter always got to "play" with the flowers and make her own creations. Although I have never done this experience, I have heard many good things about it and from my own past with flowers, I can tell you that this is a fun thing to do no matter what your age is. You will learn the very basics and get some good tips to apply to your own creations at home, but mostly, I think you should think of this as one of those other things that are just fun to experience while you're at WDW and realize that there is only so much you can learn in one hour so just go to have fun, make magical memories and bring home a special souvenir of your experience. The cost last time I checked was a "reasonable" $50.00 (in my opinion) for one hour, but it does include your souvenir arrangement (please note that prices are subject to change). The following is the description taken directly from the WDW Florist website:
