    Jen Asked

    Since we are driving, I think it would be nice to have "surprise" gifts for my husband along with way. I want to get some Disney things for him to get him as excited about the trip as the kids are. Any suggestions for disney gifts for a man?

    Hi Jen!

    What a cool idea! Let me throw out a few ideas that might help get the party started:

    Idea #1: Let him know you booked a special experience for him at Walt Disney World.

    There are a number awesome recreation options (fishing excursions, golf, archery lessons, etc.) that you can book in advance. However, if your husband is a car dude like me, then there are two other experiences that would certain rev his engine (pardon the pun!): The Richard Petty Driving Experience and The Exotic Driving Experience, both of which are located at the Walt Disney World Speedway. 

    Idea #2: Let him know you booked a special dinner date just for the two of you.

    A way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Wise words indeed! I always look forward to a date night with my wife, so this may be a really cool vacation surprise. If your children are at the ages where they'll need supervision, there are in-room babysitting services and Children's Activity Centers where children between the ages of 3 and 12 can have their own special adventures while you have a dinner date.

    Idea #3: Buy him a fun souvenir before you actually arrive.

    You can buy a variety of souvenirs online through the Disney Parks Merchandise website. If you're looking for something tangible to give him, I'm sure you'll find a lot of fun options there.

    Here's a little tip from your buddy Derek:

    If you're looking for a fun road trip game that will help pass the time and also get everyone excited for their vacation, there are a number of Walt Disney World trivia books available that can serve as a fun source of entertainment. 

    I hope that helps! If you should have any other questions, please feel free to send them my way and I'll be happy to help.

    Best regards,
