    Hey Everyone!

    So my wife and I have some extra money saved up for our upcoming trip and were planning to do something fun and exciting the first afternoon/evening we are there... We were wondering what everyone's favorite "splurge" would be if you had some extra money laying around for your trip (nice dinner, tour, show, experience, etc.)?

    Thanks!

    Two of my favorite "splurges" have been:

    1 - Brunch at California Grill
    2 - Disney After Hours

    The brunch is only offered on Sundays and DAH is running on the following dates (I'm fairly certain): 8/4, 8/11, 8/30, and 9/20.

    I like the idea of the surfing lessons at (I think) Typhoon Lagoon!

    I've done a lot of the tours, and the Wild Africa trek has been among my faves

    Yup ...

    Another fun activity that many overlook are the speedboats on Bay Lake / 7 Seas Lagoon. If the weather is nice and you have time to kill, racing around on the water near the resorts and MK is a blast!

    Charter a private boat/pontoon to watch the fireworks. Another idea... upgrade to a deluxe resort or concierge if you are already staying at one of the deluxe resorts.

    We are doing both of those during our next trip (next week)! Hopefully they are both great.

    Currently have a reservation at V&A’s... Just debating whether that’s the best option.

    We’ve been stalking brunch reservations at CG for while we are there but have had no luck yet... if one come up we will definitely be doing it since it is our favorite restaurant on property!

    By far my favorite "Splurge" is the Wanyama Safari with dinner at Jiko, at Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    Keys to the Kingdom Tour or monorail dinner/pub crawl.

    And I agree, more DVC points. :)

    if you haven't already -- sign up for touringplans reservation finder. It's worked wonders for me.
