    We are visiting the US from Australia in Sept 2022 in honour of my husbands 50th Birthday! is there a way to request something special is done to the rom for our arrival without him finding out?!

    Hello, Samantha! Welcome to planDisney!

    I can't think of a better place to celebrate the big 5-0 than Walt Disney World Resort, which is currently commemorating its 50th Anniversary! I also spent my 50th birthday at Walt Disney World Resort earlier this month. My Prince Charming had some wonderful surprises waiting for me when we checked into our room at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, including a bouquet of my favorite hydrangea flowers, a Delicious Disney cookbook, and a couple of bottles of wine. It really made me feel extra special.

    I recommend visiting the Disney Floral & Gifts webpage. Since you are an international guest, you'll need to email through the website instead of calling. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and under the Guest Service tab, click on the link that says, "Contact a Dream Maker." Then you can send them a message about some ideas. Unfortunately, they are not decorating rooms as elaborately as they did in the past, but they can customize door banners. Typically, they can do balloon bouquets, but when I spoke to a Dream Maker on the phone today, she said they are experiencing a helium shortage. However, that could certainly change by the time of your trip in September. You should complete your order online at least 48 hours before you want it delivered to the room (if your gift contains alcohol, you will need someone in your party who is 21 or older to pick it up from the front desk). 

    I'd love to offer you a few other fun ideas for your husband, Samantha! Consider booking a couples massage at The Grand Floridian Spa. Another festive activity is the private Fireworks Cruise; they will even decorate the boat for special celebrations! Lastly, make a reservation at your husband's favorite restaurant. I love California Grill and Jiko – The Cooking Place. You can also order a Mickey celebration cake in advance when you book your dining reservation online or through the My Disney Experience app

    I hope your husband's celebration is extra special, Samantha! Please write us back anytime if there's anything else we can help you with. See ya real soon!
