- The incredibly talented cast members at the Disney Florist and Gift Basket department can create a magical gift that can be waiting in the room for your parents when they arrive. The web address for this department is www.disneyflorist.com, but in your case, I would suggest calling them personally at 407-827-3505.
Not only can they create a basket with yummy treats or Disney souvenirs, they can also incorporate almost anything you'd like to send them into a personalized gift basket. I heard one of the Gift Basket cast members tell a story about a family they worked with that had a special flip-flop that the family members tried to give each other as a joke gift on every possible occasion. The icky old flip-flop was mailed to the florist and they worked it into a beautiful gift basket as a surprise. Obviously, you want something more special for an anniversary gift, but i tell the story to let you know that anything is possible. So, you could have each member of the family write a personal note to your parents. Or you could create a special photo album or a video or audio recording of some kind. Any of these personal and meaningful items could be festooned with some Disney magic and become part of a wonderful gift basket that I'm sure would bring tears to their eyes.
You could also arrange for reservations for a lovely dinner at one of the magnificent signature dining restaurants at WDW. You could leave a credit card number to pre-pay for your parent's meal. To ask about this, you should call Disney Dining at 407-WDW-DINE.
Your parents are lucky to have such thoughtful children!
