    We are coming for our 10-year wedding anniversary in a week and a half with our tiny human. If you had to choose one thing to do to make a perfect family memory (that you can possibly book this last minute), what would it be?

    Hi Meagan,

    Congratulations on your 10-year wedding anniversary! What a wonderful way to celebrate it; with a trip to Walt Disney World! I am sure that no matter what you do, you will make amazing family memories on this special trip. I can offer a couple of options for fun extras that my family has experienced at Walt Disney World.

    One option is to book a character dining meal. At these meals, you will be able to interact with a wide range of Disney characters, and they often provide unexpected, hilarious moments with the little ones. We have a photo of my daughter when she was a baby at Cape May Cafe reaching for Goofy's nose with utter delight. It is a priceless and precious memory for us!

    Another option that is slightly off the beaten path is to explore some of the recreation options at Tri-Circle-D Ranch at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. If your little one is at least 2 years old, they can experience a pony ride. No need for a reservation, these are available on a walk-up basis. If they are not interested in a pony ride, the whole family can experience a wagon ride. The wagon ride is a nice, relaxing way to ride around and see Disney's Fort Wilderness. On the wagon ride, you will be with other guests. You could also choose, for an anniversary treat, to book a horse-drawn carriage ride. This would be just your family on a lovely tour of the wilderness. When our daughter was younger, we experienced all of these options, and they are all cherished family memories! At Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, you can also explore the Settlement Area, which has great areas for little ones to run around, as well as merchandise and dining locations.

    Finally, consider a Capture Your Moment photo session at Walt Disney World. Using the Enchanting Extras page, you can scroll down and find a link to Capture Your Moment sessions at various locations. For her senior trip, our daughter and her friends did a Capture Your Moment session on Main Street U.S.A. and Cinderella Castle. During one of these sessions, a Disney photographer will choreograph and take many amazing photos of your party. The pictures of my daughter and her friends are stunning, iconic, and unforgettable. I highly recommend this experience!

    Please note that most of the experiences I noted above do come with an additional cost. I checked each online and found that there was availability for them in the next couple of weeks; however, I do suggest that you book them quickly if you are interested to be sure that you are able to experience them.

    Again, congratulations on your anniversary, Meagan. Please feel free to write back if you have any further questions!
