    I want to plan a surprise gift for my wife. It is out first anniversary which the traditional gift is paper. I have never been to Disney and she has not been in a long time. I was hoping someone could help me out plan the perfect weekend for her.

    Welcome to planDisney, where we love helping Guests like you make their Disney vacation dreams come true! Your question has to be the most magical one I have ever had the pleasure of answering, and I thank you for bringing it here. A vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth has to be one of the most magical anniversary gifts ever. You can easily create a vacation package to include a stay in one of the fabulous Disney Resort hotels and theme park tickets. From there, you can book dining reservations for the incredible restaurants found throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

    I would begin your Disney anniversary surprise but choosing the Disney Resort hotel that you think would best suit your wife. If she is an animal lover, consider booking a stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Are you looking for romance and elegance? Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is the epitome of luxury and boasts incredible views of Magic Kingdom Park and the Electrical Water Pageant. I recommend Disney’s Riviera Resort, with the Tower Studio being the best accommodation for a couple on a celebratory vacation. You can stroll along the waterfront promenade in the evening, indulge in sips and snacks from Bar Riva, the open-air pool bar, and enjoy being whisked away on the Disney Skyliner transportation as you make your way to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Disney’s Riviera Resort also offers my favorite dining in all of Walt Disney World: Topolino’s Terrace. You can enjoy a decadent meal while enjoying the stunning views from this rooftop restaurant.

    I highly recommend reaching out to Disney Floral and Gifts for a little extra pixie-dust to be sprinkled on your already magical surprise! There are so many unique experiences and events that take place in Walt Disney World, so you might want to take a look at the Enchanting Extras page for more ideas.

    You can plan out a magical Walt Disney World vacation for your wife, printing the itinerary you have created and gifting her a truly magical “paper anniversary” present! Please remember, you’ve got a friend in us here at planDisney, so stop back by if you think of any other ways we can help you with your anniversary surprise!
