    I would like to surprise my wife with a trip to Disney World but I don't know what dates will work best for her. What options do I have to purchase a vacation without knowing all of the details? Can I buy an "open" package somehow? Thanks

    Hi there, David! Thanks for coming to planDisney with your questions! 

    What an amazing gift you are wanting to give! Walt Disney World fits EVERYONE! Since you don’t have specific dates to book, it is a little difficult to book a full package to surprise your wife. 

    I do, however, have a few fun ideas of ways to “gift” this vacation. You could play around on the Walt Disney World website and put in some fake dates to figure out how much the package you are thinking of might cost. Then, you could visit the Disney Gift Card website and purchase some cards that would equal the amount of the package. After that, do an online search for Disney vacation reveals, and maybe do something fun for her to open. I love the idea of creating a puzzle or doing a scavenger hunt. 

    With that idea, you could also purchase something specifically for the vacation from shopDisney. Maybe a fun new MagicBand or a pair of Minnie ears. 

    If you are determined to actually book a vacation, know that it is just $200 to reserve your package on the Walt Disney World website, with the final payment not due until 30 days before travel. These packages are easily modified to different dates, just DO NOT pay it off completely. 

    You could also search online “Disney Vacation Printable Ticket” and simply print and wrap that as well. I would definitely put something else in the box to make it heavier and throw her off a bit. Or, maybe wrap some different clues that lead to the final reveal. You might also reach out to an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner to assist you with this very special gift. Travel Agents are paid commission from Disney and their services are free to you. 

    I hope this helps with your gift-giving! Please come back to planDisney with other questions you might have about The Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    Happy Gifting,
