    Planning our 25th Wedding Anniversary trip. It will be our first visit without our children. What deluxe resort would you recommend. We have stayed at the Contemporary Hotel and POR-Riverside.

    Hi there, William! Congratulations on the anniversary milestone.

    There is a Walt Disney World resort hotel for everyone - from a resort on the African savanna to one straight out of the turn of the century Jersey shore - before the Snooki invasion. I love each of them for different reasons, but I'll give you some ideas to commemorate this romantic occasion.

    Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is the first resort that comes to mind. The site of the gorgeous Disney's Wedding Pavilion, it's where many happily ever afters begin. You are transported to the romance of the Victorian era when you step into this resort, but the rooms are far from stuffy - they are comfortable and bright. You can also take afternoon tea at this resort, and believe it or not, it's really quite a romantic thing to do.

    Disney's Yacht Club Resort is one of my favorites. The pool is amazing and so much fun, even without children, but my favorite part is walking around to Disney's Hollywood Studios and the Boardwalk area. It's a great spot early in the morning or in the cooler evening, and a great dinner at the Yachtsman Steakhouse is right there and waiting for you to have an anniversary meal.

    If you want to feel like you've gotten two vacations in one, check out Disney's Wilderness Lodge. You're in Florida, but you'll feel like you're in the Pacific Northwest. It's beautiful.

    Happy planning, William!
