    My husband and I are planning a trip to WDW in October to celebrate our 20th anniversary. I know we can get mouse ears when we check in at our Disney resort, but how can I order t-shirts to commemorate the occasion? Thanks for your time!

    Hi there Judi! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We're so glad you're here with another vacation planning question.

    It sounds like you certainly found your happily ever after, and I can't think of a better place to commemorate 20 years with your Prince Charming than the Most Magical Place on Earth! My husband and I celebrated a milestone anniversary recently at Walt Disney World, and we had a fantastic time both reminiscing and making new memories with our children. Because we were traveling with extended family, we were even fortunate enough to sneak away by ourselves for a romantic evening at our favorite restaurant, the California Grill. If it's not on your itinerary already, see if you can make Advanced Dining Reservations here. It's the perfect place for a special occasion meal. 

    Upon arrival at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, be sure to stop by the front desk for some celebration pins. These can also be obtained at Guest Relations in any theme park and should be part of every outfit you wear; you never know what kind of pixie-dust you may receive when a Cast Member notices your special celebration! 

    In addition, you can visit various merchandise locations, such as the Chapeau in the Magic Kingdom, MouseGear in EPCOT, and Disney's Wonderful World of Memories in Disney Springs to purchase embroidered Mickey Mouse Ears or matching Mickey and Minnie Mouse bride and groom ears. shopDisney has some great options for matching shirts so you can literally wear your love on your sleeves. My personal favorite coordinating pick is the new Mickey Mouse & Friends Summer of Fun line. Even though your trip is in October, the weather should be perfect for these adorable outfits. If none of these choices strike your fancy, there are a variety of independent artists on websites like Etsy that create specialty shirts of nearly any theme you could imagine. 

    Once you have accessorized appropriately, be sure to consider all of the opportunities to celebrate a romantic occasion in Walt Disney World. Disney Floral and Gifts offers in-room celebrations and decorations perfect to surprise your loved one with after a day exploring the theme parks. The Enchanted Extras Collection includes options for dessert parties and behind the scenes tours. You could even spend an evening like Rapunzel and Flynn Rider and set sail on a Specialty Cruise to see fireworks light up the night at EPCOT or the Magic Kingdom. The possibilities for romance are endless!

    Judi, I wish you and your husband the happiest of anniversaries. If we can help you further with dining choices or ways to make your special vacation extra memorable, please come back and see us again. We're all ears!
