    Hi, me and my wife are back in Disney in July for 2 weeks, part Disney cruise part Orlando. It is our 25th wedding anniversary and would love to do something really special in one of the parks, any ideas ?

    Congratulations to you and your wife on such a special occasion! I am a big fan of how you choose to celebrate, Stephen. A vacation that includes Disney Cruise Line and Walt Disney World Resort is exactly how I would want to commemorate my 25th anniversary.

    If you have not yet booked your Disney resort, I recommend Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa as the perfect location. You can relax and be pampered at the Grand Floridian Spa. Dinner at Narcoossee's and watching fireworks from the beach would be the perfect ending to the day. You could also enjoy dining at California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort. If you can get a reservation during Happily Ever After fireworks, the view is amazing. You can also return to view the fireworks from the Observation Deck if you dine there earlier in the evening. Or you could enjoy Sip, Savor & Sparkle with the same view and tasty desserts. 

    For something special in a theme park, a Capture Your Moment photo session at Magic Kingdom Park with Cinderella Castle will mark your occasion like royalty. I would have a quaint dinner at The Plaza Restaurant and then light the night with the Fireworks Dessert Party. You could also do Capture Your Moment at EPCOT and enjoy dinner at Le Cellier Steakhouse.

    If you want something more adventurous, you could consider something from the Enchanting Extras Collection, like the Wild Africa Trek. Or for the ultimate indulgence, a Private VIP tour is incomparable. If you do this, I highly recommend scheduling your tour to end at the fireworks in Magic Kingdom. 

    I know you asked about Walt Disney World, but there are also wonderful options for celebrations aboard Disney Cruise Line. In addition to massages at Senses Spa & Salon, you can ask if day passes are available for the Rainforest Room. You can also enjoy adult-exclusive dining. My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary with brunch at Palo. Everything about it was divine. Be sure to note you are celebrating an anniversary on your reservation. You can do this under "Special Services" on your reservation page. The dining teams at Palo and the main restaurants shared in our celebration with just this simple notation.

    If you have any questions or want more ideas, please come back to planDisney. Celebrations like these are my favorite things!

    Happy Anniversary!
