    Planning a 25th anniversary in September, staying offsite for 2 weeks. PLEASE give me some ideas to make this trip memorable. This will be our first trip together by ourselves, EVER. Thought about character dining, spas, but just don't know, please help.

    Hi, Kathy!

    Congratulations on a huge milestone anniversary!

    Since you are traveling "adults-only," I'm going to restrict my answers to romantic experiences.

    The granddaddy of incredible dining is Victoria and Albert's at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. A prix fixe menu is available for $125 per Guest; wine pairings with the meal will will cost an additional $95 per Guest, and a seat at the elegant Chef's Table starts at $200 per Guest, depending on the market price of the Chef's menu items. Totally worth it.

    Some other ideas:

    Have the Disney Dream Makers help you plan a marvelous surprise for your loved one, and deliver it to the location of your choice on Disney property.

    Schedule a couples' massage at one of the many spas around Disney property.

    Take an intimate horse-drawn carriage ride around Fort Wilderness.

    Purchase some decadent wine and chocolates from one of the pavilions in Epcot, and escape to your room for a few quiet hours. Or make a late reservation at La Hacienda de San Angel for a perfect view of Illuminations. You could also enjoy a dinner at California Grill, timed to coincide with Wishes.

    Have a PhotoPass photographer capture a special shot of the two of you, using some new and magical effects.

    If I can be of further help, please send me more specifics of your itinerary and/or preferences.

    Above all, have a wonderful time on such a special occasion!

    See you later, celebrator!
