    My family is staying at the Polynesian 18-21Dec and I would like to celebrate my husband as the hero he is. We have been together for 13y despite my increasing disability and through my 2xcancer. Any suggestions for gifts/events? First meal is at Marrakesh

    Hi Sif:

    Disney World is a great place to celebrate occasions and people and loved ones.  Special meals are a great way to celebrate, and it seems that you've already have at least one special reservation ready to go.  

    One idea your husband may appreciate is a ride on Characters in Flight, a ride in a basketed tethered balloon that takes you 400-feet above Downtown Disney for 360-degree spectacular views as far as the eye can see.  Maybe combine Characters in Flight with La Nouba, the Cirque du Soleil show at Downtown Disney. Both destinations are located within walking distance of each other.

    After Marrakesh, you may want to take him to tour the countries of World Showcase in Epcot and try your favorite or new adult drinks. You can also enjoy a stroll on the Boardwalk and stop by ESPN Club or Jellyrolls. 

    You may be interested in the Candlelight Processional, or touring the Deluxe Resorts to view their Holiday decorations, including including a breathtaking just-about life-sized gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    For other activities, perhaps try a round of golf, a game of tennis, or enjoy some watersports or boat rentals.

    As for gifts, I would contact the Dream Makers at Disney Floral and Gifts at (407) WDW-GIFT or (407) 939-4438. They can help create a personalized in-room celebration or recommend the perfect gift for your husband, perhaps featuring his favorite character.

    Enjoy this special vacation and stay well.
