    My family and I (Disney Vacation Club Members since 2008) will be visiting Walt Disney World Thanksgiving Week 2013. My husband will also be turning 50 on Thanksgiving Day! Can you recommend a way to really celebrate his 50th Birthday in style?

    Howdy Jennifer!  Thanks for your question!  I have had such fun thinking of ideas to enhance your vacation and add some pixie dust to your husband's 50th birthday!

    So many options!!  In fact, too many for me to list in one answer so I'll name just a few.  If you need further details or would like some different ideas, please let me know.
    Be sure to let the Cast Members know it's your husband's birthday by getting him a birthday celebration button.  You never know when a Cast Member might add some magic to his day.

    Have you been to Yachtsman Steakhouse?  Located in Disney's Yacht Club Resort, it's one of our favorite signature dining restaurants.  It's a New England-style steakhouse.  The food is exceptional and we have always had great Disney-style service.  To make the meal even more special for him, you could add a specialty or 6-inch cake.  A specialty cake would need to be ordered 48 hours in advance by calling (407) 827-2253.

    For Christmas, I surprised my husband with an Exotics Driving Experience and he was thrilled!!  Guests get to ride shotgun or take the wheel of supercars by Ferrari, Lamborghini, Audi and Porsche on the Exotics Course. It's part of the Richard Petty Driving Experience.  It's an opportunity to get a dose of adult-size adrenaline!!  I think he would love the experience if you are able to fit it into your schedule during your vacation.

    Bottom line, your Prince Charming will be celebrating his 50th the most magical place on earth...with his Princess...on Thanksgiving Day!!!!!  In my book, you have already created the most magical birthday celebration ever!

    I wish him the happiest of birthday celebrations and you a magical day!!
