Celebration?

I mentioned this somewhere else on the forum, but my mom and I are going to WDW in April, and while we're not celebrating a specific occasion, we're celebrating the end to a very tough couple of years.

Briefly, I'll explain: my parents separated. While it wasn't a shock to anyone, and everyone is amicable and on good terms, it was very, very difficult for both of us. My dog, whom we had for 15 years, passed away, which was a huge blow to all of us, my mom in particular. My mom also has had to become a caregiver for my grandparents as her siblings don't live anywhere near us (one is in another country). Recently, they happily moved into an extended care facility (it's super nice - I'd live there ) and my mom is finally able to have a life of her own again. For me, I'm celebrating improvements in my mental health. My anxiety has improved tenfold and I haven't had a single bout of depression in almost two years. We definitely need this vacation.

On our ADRs, there's a place to put that you're celebrating something. Should we label what we're celebrating as a "Personal Triumph", or should we put "Other", or is it not appropriate to say we're celebrating something as it isn't a specific event? And does anyone have any experience with what kind of things they do when you put that you're celebrating something? I'm very new to all of this - I've never planned a trip myself before (I'm trying to give my mom a break)
