  • Hi Kristin! Walt Disney World is a wonderful place to celebrate special occasions! First, stop by Guest Services and ask for Anniversary buttons to wear so that everyone will know that you're celebrating on your trip. You'll be stunned at how many people wish you happy anniversary as you stroll through the parks! Also, be sure to note on your resort and dining reservations that you're celebrating your anniversary during your vacation. When a restaurant or hotel knows you're celebrating, you may be surprised with a free dessert after your meal or a congratulatory card in your room.

    Some fun, and best of all, free ways to celebrate at Disney World include watching the Magic Kingdom fireworks and the Electrical Water Pageant from the beach of the Polynesian, strolling around the Boardwalk watching the street performers, or spending the evening at Chip-n-Dale's Campfire Sing-a-Long followed by a movie under the stars at the Fort Wilderness resort.
    If you're planning a special meal for your celebration and don't have the Dining Plan, consider dining at lunch, rather than dinner, when the prices are often lower. At Hollywood Studios, you and your sweetie can watch Fantasmic and share a dessert tray with sparkling wine for under $20 from Hollywood Scoops. For a budget dinner with a million-dollar view, dine at the counter-service Cantina de San Angel and watch the spectacular Illuminations fireworks from your outdoor table. Although dining at places like 'Ohana or the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue is not inexpensive, you get more bang for your buck when celebrating special occasions there because birthdays and anniversaries often garner lots of fun, extra attention from the performers.
    Hope I've given you some ideas on how to make the most of your anniversary celebration without spending a lot! Come visit me again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! I'm happy to help!
