Boyfriends 30th Birthday (and first adult disney trip)

Hi All, mickey

I hope this is in the right place as I need help from you lovely people.

Me and my OH are planning a 10 day Disneyworld Holiday in May next year staying at the Port Orleans Riverside Hotel. We will be in Disney for his 30th and I have decided to plan a day of surprises. yay

So far I am planning a Planning to book the Private Dining at the Grand Floridian Hotel for dinner and am looking into the Key to the Castle tour, but was wondering if anyone has any tips or Ideas for the best place to go for breakfast and other things to do during the day?

As I said, the whole day will be a surprise and I was planning of presenting him with a gift box of envelopes first thing in the morning which are to be opened throughout the day to explain what we'd be doing next.

My OH has been to Disney a couple of times (but always as a child/teenage) and I have only been when I was about 13, so it will be our first visit as adults.

I would love to hear any Ideas (and tips) you have. muchlove

Boma at AKL is a nice buffet and gives you an excuse to see the amazing lobby, pool area, and see if any animals are out. Also a good dinner spot. You'll then want to stay there for your next visit. We also like Captain's Grill breakfast buffet at Yacht Club. Trails End is another breakfast buffet at Fort Wilderness - there you'll probably want to take a boat. These are just 3 less obvious ideas to get you out to the other resorts which is fun to do anyway, especially with 10 days to kill.

The coolest thing I've done at Disney is rent a pontoon boat and do a complete circle around both lakes. You can do it in about 45 mins if your boat skippering skills are good. ~$65 Just stay away from other boats and land masses and you're good! There are also the specialty cruises, but think about it if you'd like to be on a boat for an hour or two waiting to see fireworks, or would you just like to be walking around EPCOT instead. I'm a night person so I don't get why people stand around thinking if they don't get a good spot they won't be able to see fireworks and lasers 500ft in the air.

Thanks ThatMouse! I'll add them to my list to look into (might have to try all 3 at some point)

Have been looking at the various posts here, I'm starting to think 10 days is going to be a lot! we will also be visiting Universal and doing a bit of shopping so hopefully it'll not be too long! (although tbh I don't think I'll even get fed up off Disney) mickey

The boat idea seems awesome, admittedly neither of us have ever skippered a boat before which could be interesting but I'll definitely have a look into it too.

I totally agree, I never understand people of fight to get the best spots for fireworks etc and would much rather spend my time doing something else than just standing and waiting.

Looking at everyone else's posts is getting me so excited!!!! 240 days to go! yay

I really don't think 10 days will be too long. There is more than enough to keep you busy for longer than that. Oh. and by the way Emma (I assume) welcome to our happy group. You should go over to our Introduce yourself thread and tell us about yourself and your Disney likes. mickey

Thanks Vettelover.

I didn't know there was an 'Indroduce your self group' but have now found it clapping
