    Having a nice 17th anniversary get-a-way with my husband for 3 days...what are the top 5 must do's? We are not new to Disney, BUT we usually have the kids with us! Looking forward to having the adult time! Thanks and you all rock here on the panel!!

    Hi Tracy! Exploring Walt Disney World without children will have a very different feel to it and I am sure for the three wonderful days you are there you will keep thinking the kids are sitting next to you. I remember our own trip without kids and it was a very strange feeling!

    Listing just a top five things to do for parents only is tough as there is more like a top 20 list! I am not sure about your budget so will list some fun things to do and try to cover all areas of the financial spectrum.

    If possible book a fireworks cruise either for the Magic Kingdom show or the great Epcot Illuminations show. Add some champagne and strawberries through private dining at the booking resort and it will give you a very romantic evening alone. You won't share the boat with anyone except the driver. If budget is not an issue go for the Grand One Yacht and include dinner on board!

    There are some great dining options for you on property too. Victoria and Alberts is of course the signature restaurant and is very romantic. Other not quite so pricey options include Bistro de Paris in France, Citricos, and the wonderful wine dinner at Flying Fish that is offered almost every night. If you are just looking for something lighter but still fun try the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party which offers super viewing for the Magic Kingdom fireworks.

    For night life our favorite spot is Jellyrolls on the Boardwalk. It is a great place to be entertained by the dueling pianos. Send a request on a napkin and add a tip and your favorite is sure to be played. 

    There is always a recreation opportunity for you both: fishing, boating, parasailing, water skiing.

    Lots to do and only three days to fill....narrowing it down will be the hardest part!
