    My husband and I are celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary at Disney World during their 50th anniversary over Thanksgiving break this year. Would there be anything special for this joint anniversary? We will have our 23 children, grandchildren and a gre

    Hello Brenda!

    Welcome to planDisney! Happy (early) Anniversary! A Disney vacation is the perfect way to celebrate such a monumental occasion. We were able to celebrate my parents’ anniversary in Disney style as well. Technically we had to celebrate 51 because of the pandemic, but we still had an amazing vacation with all of my parents’ grandchildren surrounding them. Make sure to ask for your complimentary Celebration Buttons at Guest Relations or upon check-in of a Disney Resort Collection Hotel. These buttons make a great souvenir and you'll receive well wishes from Cast Members and even other Guests!

    That’s a large group you will be bringing! There are a few Enchanting Extras that could accommodate a larger group and make your trip even more special. How about celebrating your 50th anniversary along with Walt Disney World Resort’s by enjoying the special anniversary evening fireworks at Magic Kingdom together? You can now book Magic Kingdom 50th Fireworks Dessert Parties for either before, during, or after the fireworks! Your group will enjoy a special reserved area to view the fireworks along with tasty sweets and treats!

    If you’d like to enjoy the fireworks with a nautical view, how about the Ferrytale Dessert and Fireworks Cruise? Take in all the colors, sights, and even the sounds of Magic Kingdom’s evening show from the comfort of one of the ferry boats! You’ll find an array of desserts to enjoy before the show, and they will even play the fireworks soundtrack for you on the boat!

    Or how about taking in a show? The brand new Cirque du Soleil show premieres at Disney Springs on November 18, 2021. Drawn to Life promises to bring together the beauty and artistry of Cirque du Soleil with the magic and whimsy of Disney. Tickets are on sale now! Perhaps plan to enjoy dinner either before or after the show in Disney Springs. While most dining locations within the theme parks or at Disney Resort Collection Hotels are only seating tables of 6 or less, several locations at Disney Springs can accommodate larger groups. You may want to try Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant, The Boathouse, or City Works Eatery & Pour House. You should contact these Disney Springs locations directly rather than through the Walt Disney World Website to ask about large group seating and private parties.

    I hope one of these ideas sounds like an extra special way to celebrate your anniversary, Brenda. Though I imagine being surrounded by your family will be the highlight of the trip!

    Happy Planning!
