    Hi! My husband and I are planning to visit DSNYLD the 1st week of Dec to celebrate our 5th anniversary. 2 questions: could I plan a special surprise in the Star Wars section of the park, & will Tom Sawyer Island be open during that time? Thx!

    Hi, Stephanie,

    Congratulations on your upcoming five-year celebration! My wife and I absolutely love celebrating our wedding anniversary at the Disneyland Resort. You are in for a wonderful, romantic time at the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Before you head over to a galaxy far, far away, I recommend you start off your visit at City Hall in Disneyland Park or the Chamber of Commerce in Disney California Adventure Park to pick up complimentary anniversary celebration buttons. That will help signal to Cast Members to break out some extra pixie dust in your honor. We enjoy celebrating anniversaries with a lovely, bella notte at a fine dining restaurant. You may even consider having a custom cake delivered to your table. You can make restaurant reservations and cake orders by calling the Disney Dining Reservations line at (714) 781-3463.

    Though there are no table-service restaurants at the Black Spire Outpost, you may want to experience the lounge scene at Oga's Cantina. At this time, Oga is accepting reservations made the day of your visit. There are not currently celebration event activities to reserve in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. But some very special activities still come to mind. A day-of reservation may be made at Savi's Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers. This intimate experience provides a special peek into Jedi lore and the ways of the Force. I think it would also be a fun and romantic experience to select parts to build a droid together at the Droid Depot. You may also be interested in expanding your family by adopting a new pet at the Creature Stall in the Black Spire Outpost Market. When Disney PhotoPass photographers perform facial scans at the Millennium Falcon or other locations, make sure to let them know you are celebrating. They may be able to find extra time to help make special memories.

    If you are staying at a Disneyland Resort hotel or at a select Good Neighbor Hotel, I highly recommend an In-Room Celebration from Disney Floral and Gifts. My wife loved the romantic surprise from Mickey and Minnie found in our room. And they also happen to offer Star Wars-themed packages to help continue your intergalactic adventure at your hotel.

    Park schedules are typically available about four to six weeks ahead of time. So check back in late October or early November for Pirate's Lair on Tom Sawyer Island availability. In previous years, the rafts to Tom Sawyer Island typically have been running in early December. So, unless a significant refurbishment gets scheduled this year, you are likely to be able to go over and enjoy your own swashbuckling adventures with Huck and Tom.

    Have a magical time, Stephanie!
