    Hi, my girlfriend and I are planning on having our 5 year anniversary here at Disneyland. I was wondering if there was anything special I could do to suprise her and if someone could help me.

    Royal greetings, Prince Brett!

    Thank you for bringing your question to us here at planDisney. Just as Prince Eric put a lot of thought into creating a wonderful day for Ariel to explore his kingdom, it's heartwarming to see you putting in the effort to plan the perfect celebration for your One True Love.

    First off, don't forget to pick up celebration buttons at City Hall on Main Street, U.S.A. Wearing them is like having a magic wand – every cast member who spots them will sprinkle some extra pixie dust, and good wishes your way!

    I remember celebrating my first dating anniversary with my husband by dining at the Blue Bayou Restaurant many years ago. It's all about that serene elegance, those cozy flickering firefly-like lights, the soothing scent of water while those Pirates of the Caribbean boats drift by, and of course, the mouthwatering flavors of the Big Easy gracing your plate. Even though the restaurant is indoors, it skillfully transports you to the ambiance of a romantically murky bayou, thanks to some Imagineering magic. Reservations are recommended for the Blue Bayou, Brett. So make sure to check the dining reservations page right away!

    To make your dining experience even more delightful, add a Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake to your meal! This tasty treat can be delivered to your table at the Blue Bayou, as well as other dine-in locations like the Café Orléans, and the River Belle Terrace.

    Now Brett, if you're looking for a special keepsake, there are so many charming artists available all around the park who can make the magic of your day last forever. You and your "hunny" can get a romantic caricature done in New Orleans Square. Personally, one of my favorite keepsakes is the silhouette portraits that you can have made at the Silhouette Studio on Main Street, U.S.A.
    And don't forget, Disney PhotoPass Service photographers are always eager to help you capture a loving moment. Photos at Snow White's well and along the Seven Dwarfs' bridge to the right side of the Sleeping Beauty Castle is a less common spot for a snapshot of the two of you sharing Love's True Kiss.

    I hope these ideas help you make all your dreams come true for your anniversary, Brett. I look forward to hearing more about your Happily Ever After at Disneyland! So please let me know if you have any follow-up questions. I'd love to share more of my favorite tips!

    I consider myself to be a Love Expert,
