    Hi, We are planning a trip to WDW for my husband's 50th birthday, NEXT August 2013. My husband is a HUGE Disney fan. We are DVC members and plan on staying at the Boardwalk. He is the WDW trip planner. I'd like to plan an extra special surprise! Help

    Hello, Sara!

    What a great surprise, to finally surprise the PLANNER! Excellent idea!

    Birthday celebrations at Walt Disney World are truly magical, and you've got some great options, Sara, so I'll try to give you as many as I can squeeze in here.

    Head over to Disney Floral & Gifts for an in-room surprise on just about any level. From balloons to snack collections, beer tubs to exclusive DVC merchandise, even whole room makeovers, this would be a spectacular way to surprise the birthday boy in a way he's sure to remember.

    You can also have a customized cake delivered to a resort restaurant of your choice. Your DH can make the usual dining plans, and you can arrange for the surprise secretly. Call (407) 827-2253 for more information. Give at least 48 hours notice to be sure your order can be filled.

    You could also arrange for a Mini Portrait Session at the Beach Club. We just had one to celebrate my father-in-law's upcoming 70th birthday, and the pics are absolutely wonderful; the process was so easy and Jake, our photographer, was patient, professional and perky!

    Consider one of the many perks DVC Members enjoy, such as 15% off selected tours, discounts on golf, mini-golf,  a 10% discount on marina rentals or even parasailing! Login to and click on "Member Privileges" for a full list of discounts.

    Send me more questions as you think of them; I'd love to help you surprise your husband on his big day!
