    I am a DVC member and I am bringing friends that are celebrating an anniversary on March We arrive on that same day and are staying at the Boardwalk Villas. Any suggestions for a great anniversary surprise???

    Hi Larry,

    How lovely to want to surprise your friends for their anniversary! Simply being at Walt Disney World for this celebration will be a great start. Disney's BoardWalk Villas is one of my favorite Disney Vacation Club resorts and my home resort with Disney Vacation Club.

    One of the first ideas that comes to mind is to plan a Specialty Cruise. You could choose a Fireworks Cruise and depart from Bayside Marina, a simple walk around Crescent Lake from Disney's BoardWalk Villas. This Fireworks Cruise would take you to see IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth from a great vantage point on the water. I have taken a this cruise a couple of times and have always enjoyed the special vantage point and relaxation of being on a boat during this nighttime spectacular. You could book the cruise just for them, or you could join them for a larger celebration. Please do note that on nights with inclement weather, fireworks are not guaranteed.  Afterwards, I suggest heading back over to Disney's BoardWalk to AbracadaBar, the new and magically themed cocktail lounge, for a nightcap. I was recently able to spend time at this new cocktail lounge with friends, and found it a great place to unwind at the end of an evening.

    Another possibility is to work with Disney Floral and Gifts to plan a surprise for your friends. From banners to flowers to plush animals to chocolates, the Magic Makers at Disney's Floral and Gifts can work with you to create a special in-room celebration. I suggest that you peruse the website, and then call them at 407-WDW-GIFT (407-939-4438) to customize a celebration for your friends.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Larry! Please let us know if you have any further questions.
