The California Griss is awesome - especially if you get a winow seat for the fireworks... I'm going to also say to try Jiko at the AKL. We've been there a bunch of times and it was always great. Hey - you'll have the time! I used to carry my man bag all the time - now I usually wear the Cargo shorts and everything I need is in there unless I have the camcorder...

Chris and I go almost every year and have never had any uncomfy moments ( accept years ago at Citrico's - a nasty waitress... But that was once and it never happened again...

We've also done fireworks cruises - love the Wishes one best.

Have a great time!

Hey, if you wanted it to be a surprise, you could have told him not to read the DIS!

There are just so many things you can arrange and not tell him about.

Hey, on the topic of man pruses, murses, manbags or whatever they are called...... My DH has one, he will only use it in Europe because they are so not hetero in the US. Cargo shorts are a great idea! I will have to see if he would go for them to carry his camera.

I've carried camera in cargo short pockets and never had any problem. With the pockets on the side of the shorts, down closer to the knees, you don't have to worry about lap restraints, etc. hitting the camera. I will admit to carrying a shoulder bag back and forth from work everyday as I have newspaper, books, umbrella, etc. but when I hit the theme parks, everything goes into pockets.

Hey guys AKL is great! We never had a problem there. The staff is very warm and welcoming there. The safari theme is great. We are also gonna recommend Cali Grill. Thats one of our favorite places to eat. Mmmm try the "snake in the grass" if you like sushi, or my favorite the fillet mignon. Two weeks is an awesome amount of time to stay. Get some books on Disney, you will get some good ideas. There are also premium outlets like 10 mins away, and great food (as well as other places) nearby. I really recommend renting a car if you are gonna be there that long.

I could go on an on with info for ya. If you want PM me. I have a lot of info, and a website with vacation pics, and things to do.

I celebrated my 50th birthday last August in WDW. I myself chose Jiko's for dinner. Actually it was a party, as about 6 friends flew down to WDW for the occassion.

So, what we did was have a few bevies at Victoria Falls to get things loosened up a bit and then dinner at Jiko's.

You can order a special celebration cake at Jiko's.

Also or course, I got an "It's My Birthday" pin (or badge since you're British and I'm bilingual) and flaunted the fact to everyone (or bored them, depending on how you look at it) with the fact that it was my birthday, I was 50 and I was fabulous.

I recommend pulling out all the stops. Insist on, nay demand, adoration from everyone!

The birthday pin is a great idea! Stop by any guest relations and ask for one! You will be amazed at how many people say "happy birthday" to you!

The adoration is great!

I gotta get me one of those pins! Thanks guys, a little adoration goes a long way. And who am I to shy away from attention?! What do I need to take to customer relations to get my Pin?

Just march in as bold as brass to MK City Hall and say, "Today's my birthday." They're not going to ask to see anything.
