Thanks for your help.
Unfortunately, the Dream Makers at the Disney Florist cannot make international phone calls. The system won't allow them to call out that way.

When I was a Dream Maker, I handled several international orders via email. If you send them an email via the website, explain in your email that you want to do an Magical Celebration in-room decor order but you cannot make the international call. Ask them to email you to set up the details. It is a bit more time consuming, but it can be done.

You could always do a balloon bouquet. The minimum order amount for merchandise is $20 plus the $9 delivery fee and tax.

Feralpeg?

I love all of your advice! Since you have worked at Disney Florist, what would you recommend that would really add the magic to a WDW vacation? What impressed you?
The in room celebrations seem spectacular! I am looking forward to (and saving for) the Mickey's Big Bday Bash for DH. I think it would be great to reuse the banner and baloons for future birthdays at home. Shhhhh, it is a surprise for DH! It will be an even bigger surprise when he sees the bill!! I am also looking for preschool/toddler add on for DDs. Can I add on the personalized yellow/red blankets from the in-room welcome? There is a blue castle blanket from DisneyStore.com I really like.

What are your favs?

Thank you!!

I think I want to order Embrace the Magic for my DH as a surprise. Does anyone (Feralpeg?) have an idea how much it would be to add some Micky Krispie treats? I also LOVE those coconut Mickey heads. Do they sell the 2 packs at WDW? They are hard to find at DL. If they have them, can they be added?

I am excited!!

Hi!
I ordered this gift for DBF on our trip a few weeks ago.... i requested no nut products as he doesn't like them & i'm allergic (!), and they did a great job substituting for other products i'm pretty sure they would add some items for you like that...
ours was: mickey chocolate bars, chip&dale pretzels, gummi bears, mickey shortbread cookies, jelly beans, ghiradelli chocolates.
it was full of treats, lasted the whole vacation & we even brought some of it back home with us! and the mickey plush toy is soo cute & really soft fur

This is a pic of the 'He be a Pirate' gift, with added princess items (delivered to SSR last October... it was fantastic!!)

Do you care to tell me how much this one was?

My daughter turns 13 a couple to weeks before we go. I would like to do something special for her although I don't want to spend a fortune. I don't really want flowers or balloons, I want something that will last. Any suggestions?

We did it for my son and it was ADORABLE! I took tons and tons of photos BUT I am working on my photos in chronological order as I have 10,000 photos for our 10 day stay

Good news is the in room Birthday decorating is on day 2 of our trip ...bad news is after 3 days I am still not done with day 1

I really want to do the in-room celebration Mickey & Pals Big Bday Wish for my DH's 31st bday this September.... it is just soooooo much $$$$$! I wish someone would post some pics of this package and what is now inside the gifts!! Help me to decide on whether or not its worth the money! I LOVE doing surprises like this to make our Disney vacation even more magical and memorable! For our honeymoon 2 years ago, I had personalized menus and a diver hold up a sign at Coral Reef, and last year for our 1-year anniversary, had a cake ordered at 1900 Park Fare! This seems like the perfect way to TOP the last 2 years surprises! How much in advance do I have to book this? Has anyone done the smaller Mickey package? Wondering if it is worth the extra $200 to order the bigger package! Thanks for any info!!!

Just an FYI, when I emailed, I never received a response back, so I would start now. For those non internationals, just call and talk to someone! They are great about answering questions!
