    Hi, we went to WDW last year for our honeymoon and this year were going to Disneyland for our 1year wedding anniversary and want to plan something special.We all ready made reservations for Ariels grotto.Thanks!

    Hi, Brittany! 

    Congratulations on your upcoming anniversary! I’m glad you're celebrating your special day at “The Happiest Place on Earth!"

    I love the whimsical undersea atmosphere at Ariel's Grotto! Just above the restaurant is the open-air Cove Bar, a great spot to take in the view of Paradise Bay while sipping a signature cocktail. Another great dining option is Blue Bayou, my favorite restaurant in Disneyland Park. It serves Cajun- and Creole-style food along with the signature drink of New Orleans Square, the Mint Julep. Because the restaurant is located right inside the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, I like to sit at a table near the water. The gently-lit “outdoor” atmosphere is very romantic, and don't forget to wave to Guests who float by in boats headed to the pirate-filled waters below! Be sure to make a reservation, as it is very popular, and mention that you’re celebrating your anniversary when calling. You may get sprinkled with a little extra pixie dust during your dining experience!

    To get away from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks and enjoy some pampering together, treat yourselves to a couples massage at the luxurious Mandara Spa, located at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

    If you’re staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels, an in-room celebration would be a magical addition to your trip. From gift baskets and bouquets to special room decorations, desserts and champagne, the Disney Dream Makers offer gift ideas perfect for your special occasion. You can contact them to create a custom celebration plan by calling (714) 781-GIFT.

    Of course, don’t forget to stop by City Hall on your way into Disneyland Park to get anniversary buttons so you can receive well wishes from Cast Members and other guests! Please feel free to ask me any other questions as you plan your romantic getaway.

    Wishing you magic,
