In room celebrations

Has anyone had in room celebrations performed by someone other than disney florist. If so who?

If you have used disney florist for grand welcome, was it worth the money?

I was looking into that and doing some research and found gifts of a lifetime. They do that sort of thing too but seemed a little pricey compared to disney florist. I think after researching both that I'm going to do it myself and just have a gift basket delivered for the kids instead. Good luck

I was looking at this as well. In the past I have always used memories by betsy for the kids baskets and they have been happy. Since I would need 2 I think the Grand Welcome is out of my price range

just so you know they will work with you to adjust whats in the package to accommodate two. like....two mickeys or two Minnie instead of one of each....add an extra autograph book....substitute things.

I have done Memories by Betsy gift baskets, Disney Florist in room celebrations and gift baskets and I did have a custom event done by Gifts of a Lifetime (not room decorating).

GoaL does custom work so I would expect to pay more. Disney Florist does a great job and although they will work with you to switch a few things out, you aren't going to get a custom package--they are limited to using the items that they have been authorized to use.

Memories by Betsy is nice enough but it's not at the level of either Disney Florist or Gifts of a Lifetime. However, prices are much less.
