    Give us a hint! Do you want to purchase a gift? Go to a nice dinner? Do something off Disney property? Take one of the tours???

    There is a wealth of options so point us in the general direction.

    Congratulations on your up coming ceremony.

    I was thinking first Wishes Dessert Party, then instead Yachtsmen's Steak House with arranging ahead of schedule for a celebration cake, or asking all the cast members to do a MOB dance (dont think it will happen), and all of these are not necessarily great ideas.

    But I think the cast members are always into helping with special events, I wonder if they can suggest something very special and very Disney. Maybe get you to be the honorary guests of the daily parade?

    I hope whatever you do, it is special for both of you.

    Hugs, Phil

    it doesnt have to be disney no, we have tickets for all the orlando parks, we already have discovery cove, the marine mammal keeper experience at seaworld booked, and planning on doing the halloween and christmas parties at magic kingdom.

    i was thinking something along the lines of a special tour or a dinner.
    but im really open to any ideas, were renting a car for the 3 weeks we will be there so im happy to drive upto about two hours to get somewhere aswell.

    thanks for your help!! :)

    OOOOH! You are able to go offsite? NICE!

    If you want to stick kind of close to Disney there is a wicked fun place in downtown Orlando, Ceviche. It's all tapas with a couple of paella choices. We really like it there.

    If you want steak there is Ruth's Chris or Charley's or Morton's in the Orlando area. If you want to drive a bit there is Bern' in Tampa. Oh, and Ybor City can be fun at night if you want to stay over there, and enjoy yourself for longer than dinner.

    The Ravenous Pig in Winter Park has a great reputation.

    Norman's, and the Venetian room are two others.

    There are several tours at WDW, including the Dolphin experience. WDW Play will tell you all about them. Segway tours are fun, but I'd not say they are really "special."

    Everyone will tell you Victoria and Albert's for a fine dining experience at WDW.

    Congratulations on your upcoming ceremony! We hope you'll have an amazing time in Florida!

    My partner and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at WDW with a dinner at Victoria & Alberts and were lucky enough to land the Chef's table which was awesome and so much fun and then following dinner I surprised her with a Wishes Cruise to view the fireworks. It was a very special evening. A spluge for us, yes, but one we'll always remember!

    Whatever you do, I'm certain it'll be great! Have a wonderful time.

    Wishing you both much happiness,
    Auntie Peep

    (will one of you youngsters please help me fix this siggy thing, please? It's so embarrassing:blush:)

    First of all, congrats!!! :yay:

    There are haunted carriage rides at the Fort Wilderness Resort during the first few days of your vacation...I plan on booking one for my honeymoon (which is the same time you're going, just a week shorter). They sound fun, but since the carriages only hold a max of 4 adults, and according to the pricing info from last year, it's only $60 for a carriage, it's a pretty reasonable price for something that sounds fun (and can be romantic too).

    If you are staying on-site you can also order in-room decorations so that when you get to your resort, there could be rose petals sprinkled across the bed, or you could have a bottle of wine or champagne and chocolates or roses waiting for you...there's lots of things they can do apparently, but they seem a bit pricy, in my opinion...here's the link to the website if you want to learn more: http://www.disneyflorist.com/?source=header

    There's always going for a dinner somewhere fancy and then maybe going for a stroll somewhere nice, or maybe go see Cirque and then have a nice dinner...there are lots of things you could do :thumbsup2 Happy planning! :goodvibes

    Congrats!

    Another vote here for Victoria & Alberts. My partner and I went there on our first trip to WDW together. Very romantic. While some might be concerned that a setting that intimate might raise issues for same sex couples - as with everything Disney - not an issue at all.

    Also, one of the best meals I've had - and I've been lucky enough to eat at some of the best restaurants in the world (thanks to my job).

    If you like wine - the wine pairing makes it the much better!
