Gift Baskets through Disney Vacation Planning (pics inside)

So many of you may remember that I ordered an In-Room Celebration for our first anniversary last year (pics of which are in my signature). This year, I decided to order a gift basket to have in the room upon our arrival for my husband's birthday.

I decided on Chocolate Lovers Delight which is described as: This basket contains temptations of a dark, sweet nature. Everyone’s favorite, chocolate, manifests itself in several yummy varieties for the sweet tooth in all of us! Recommended for ages 3 to adult.

Here is what it looked like when it was delivered:



And here are all the contents laid out:



There was a bag of chocolate covered raisins, chocolate covered malt balls, and chocolate covered caramel squares, chocolate coins in the shape of a Mickey icon, box of chocolates and a 3-pack of chocolate bars, and a Mickey plush.

Then to apologize for a room issue, the hotel also delivered this basket, which seems like the Mickey's Coffee Club basket. "Guests need not forsake the enjoyment of a good cup of coffee during their stay at the Disneyland Resort. This basket features a bounty of flavored coffee and accompaniments that will satisfy the most distinctive connoisseurs! A very vintage looking Disney mug completes this collection. "



And all the contents laid out:



The same chocolate items as above, with the addition of two cute Mickey travel mugs, a can of coffee, a tin of Disney "Altoids." Chocolate covered espresso beans (in the jar) under Mickey's right foot, some coffee-infused chocolate drops (underneath Mickey's left foot.) and a box of Disney Shortbread Cookies (made by Walkers of Scotland, which are AMAZING.)

The plush in each basket is the same, I actually wound up giving the second plush to a young girl (3 years old maybe?) in our shuttle van on our ride to the airport. Her Mom was so excited and actually teared up, because she said, she didn't get her daughter anything because she ran out of money. (And I am sure everyone can relate to that.) (They had met up with her husband who was in town for a convention.) So of course I teared up too, but it was so exciting to spread some Disney magic to a little girl who said her favorite thing was visiting Mickey at his house!

Here are the two baskets together:



It's a shame, but I had to leave the actual baskets behind because we just had no room.

Thanks for posting the pics. I ordered the chocolate lovers basket a few years ago and it has changed a little. We also received a bag of pretzels, but did not get the Mickey ears coins. I like that addition! Having now seen the coffee basket I think I may order that! I think it was nice that they sent an extra basket due to the room mix up!

The smaller basket was $78. I'm not sure how much the bigger one was as it was sent by the hotel to apologise for not getting the room we had requested (three times).

Darn, that's a little pricier than I had hoped. I was thinking more like 50 or 60.

Our first trip is coming up to DL this October. Sadly, I couldn't convince DH to spend the money on an on-site hotel, so we're staying at GNH. Can we do this too? It will be five years in October since we first met and I'd like to do something special as well.

PS: Love the mugs!!!!!!

Yes, it had all the same candy, with the addition of the mug and coffee and mints.

Yes, I believe these can be sent to a GNH, however, they wouldn't be able to set it up in room, but available for pick up at the front desk.
