    Hello Moms! I have been to WDW every year since I was 5, (34 now) and I think I know alot about Disney but I'm stumped for what to do for my husband's 50th birthday next year. I want to do something really really spectacular. Any suggestions?

    Hi Dianne,

    Disney is the perfect place to celebrate a 50th birthday! Here are some suggestions:

    * The Richard Petty Driving Experience 
    * Attend an Atlanta Braves Spring Training Game (if you're visiting in the spring)
    * Book a round of golf at one of the awesome golf courses at WDW
    * Go on a backstage tour
    * Parasailing at the Contemporary Resort

    To celebrate together, I'd recommend Disney's Spirit of Aloha Show, the Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue (HDDR), the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage (P&P) or the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party.  Be sure to tell them you'll be celebrating a 50th birthday when making any reservations.

    Dinner at California Grill timed to see the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom rocks & is a special way to top off a birthday celebration!  You can also order a special birthday cake by calling 407-827-2253. ADRs are required & cakes must be ordered at least 48 hours prior to your reservation.

    For a personal touch, contact the Disney Floral & Gifts Department. They can help with an in-room celebration or a special delivery to a dining location. Visit them online at or call them at 407-WDW-GIFT.

    Be sure to pick up a "Happy Birthday" button for your husband from Guest Relations. I'm limited in space so please let us know if you need more suggestions or details on any of these. Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
