    This year is our 40th anniversary. Are there any perks or special experiences for this milestone?

    Welcome to planDisney, Nancy!

    Congratulations on celebrating 40 years of marriage this year! What a fabulous achievement. Having celebrated a wedding anniversary milestone of my own at Walt Disney World Resort, I can personally testify that it's the perfect place for such an occasion. Did you know that Mickey and his pals are also celebrating this year? The 50th Anniversary Celebration will provide many special experiences for you to enjoy together. 

    The first thing I'd encourage you to do when you arrive, Nancy, is to stop by Guest Relations at any Theme Park and tell them you're celebrating. They will give you each a special button which you can wear throughout your trip. This way, the Cast Members and fellow Guests will know that you're celebrating and can offer you their congratulations. I remember this nice touch making my wife and I feel as though everyone was celebrating with us. Although not guaranteed, sometimes magical things can happen when wearing these buttons. For example, a Cast Member once gave us a free treat to say congratulations. Another time, we were even given a free (and delectable) dessert at one of our favorite restaurants. So you never know if and when you might receive some extra pixie dust.

    There are also some wonderful experiences that might interest you in the Enchanting Extras Collection, such as VIP fireworks parties, spectacular shows, and fascinating tours. On a recent trip, I was able to enjoy a VIP dessert and fireworks viewing of Harmonious at EPCOT. It was truly magical.

    You should also check out some of the amazing restaurants on property. For example, Topolino's Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera combines exquisite flavors of Italian and French cuisine with a truly spectacular vantage point for watching Harmonious. My wife and I love to celebrate special occasions at California Grill. The food is exquisite, the service is sublime, and the ambiance is romantic. Also, you get the most amazing view of Disney Enchantment.

    If you wanted to Capture Your Moment, then you could also reserve a private photography session at Magic Kingdom Park. One final suggestion would be to treat yourself at The Grand Floridian Spa. There are a variety of services to refresh your mind, body, and spirit.

    Those are some ideas, Nancy. I'm sure your trip is going to be practically perfect in every way.
