    What about a helicopter ride over the theme parks. Available on Idrive.

    what about a balloon flight...we did one in this country but would love to do one in Florida..

    Also have you looked at all the WDW tours they do? We did the Stream Train Tour, which obviously isn't everybody's cup of tea but DH rather fancied it so I tagged along and thought it was EXCELLENT..we got to go in the park and ride the train before anybody else and the guide tells you all the back ground of why Walt decided on Florida, why he wanted trains, where the trains came from etc etc..it was really good! Anyway there are loads of different tours that you could look at that might rock your boat a bit more:)

    What about doing the Dessert Party or a cruise onto the lake to watch the fireworks...

    Or off resort I have heard good things about ZipWire Orlando
    http://www.ziporlando.com/

    That looks really fun..

    OR

    Swimming with dolphins at Discovery cove

    Hope thats helped a tad...:wave2:

    What about a short Bahamas cruise. Get away from the parks for a proper rest.

    I second the Bahamas cruise. We sailed on the Disney Dream in November but both Carnival and Royal Caribbean do similar itineraries for a lot less. I'm thinking of doing a cruise for my 30th in a few years. To be fair, simply going to FL is the best birthday I could imagine :)

    Do you subscribe to Groupon? I signed up for the Groupon Orlando deals and they have some really good experience offers on a regular basis

    If he is into cars - there is the Richard Petty Driving Experience?

    There are all kinds of watersports available at the Contemporary hotel and paragliding. You have to book with an outside company and I can't just recall the name sorry.

    If you budget allows, this is a great suggestion!

    I tried last year, but I had problems with my credit card, that wasn't accepted. However it was an Italian credit card, I have not yet tried with my UK debit Visa.
    Have you bought any coupon from the UK?

    I purchased a Groupon from the USA site from the UK using a uk credit card for our swim with the manatees. No problems whatsoever.

    As a wedding present for my husband I booked for him to do the Warbirds flying experience - it was a lot of money but it was fantastic...he loved it! Something really memorable and special.

    Parasailing over Bay Lake is really good too-we did that in Nov and enjoyed it a lot.

    If he is really in to Disney, we can recommend the Keys to the Kingdom tour at MK. This was one of the best things I've ever done in Orlando. I loved every second of it and tell everyone about it.

    It's my 30th next year so I'm hoping that I'll get to spend it in Orlando! Hope you both have a great time.
