    Hi Bret! I am need of a man's opinion. Will be celebrating 10yr ann. with DH on trip in Nov. We spent our honeymoon in WDW and I want to something really special for him. Any suggestions? He is into sports and enjoys a cold beer now and then. THNX


    You may be interested to know that this was very similar to one of my final round questions to be selected for the Moms Panel. Since then I’ve run across additional great ideas for your DH (Dear Husband) that might help even more.

    My top suggestions of Disney offerings for guys (or couples), in no particular order, :
    - Epcot Segway Tour
    - Fort Wilderness Segway tour
    - Golf on one of Disney's four championship courses
    - Backstage Magic tour
    - Keys to the Kingdom tour 
    - Richard Petty Driving Experience
    - Epcot's DiveQuest  (requires SCUBA certification)
    - Guided Fishing Expedition (the 7/16/08 DIS Unplugged podcast has a helpful and detailed trip report on this)

    Other less organized options (could be combined with some options above):
    - Dining at the Rose & Crown.  If you're lucky, you might be seated on the balcony and view Illuminations while you have an extra pint of tasty ale.
    - Drink-by-country around Epcot's World Showcase (might want to share, there are 11 countries!)
    - Watch the fireworks from the Polynesian Resort beach

    Of course you should also be sure to get Anniversary buttons from Guest Services, just to help a little more Magic come your way!

    Personally I’d be thrilled if my wife set me/us up with any of these options. Add in your own knowledge of your husband, and I don’t think you can go wrong. 

    Hmmm, this has me thinking (always dangerous)…hope you don’t mind if I borrow your idea, and send a "subtle" copy of this list to my dear wife in prep for our next trip. ;-)
