Where do I bring her?

Hello,

I am taking my DW to WDW for our honeymoon / her birthday at the end of march yay . For a little back story on this: She has no idea where we're going, just that I planned a vacation for us. When we got married we already had a little one, so we didn't really get a honeymoon. Every week for the last 4 weeks I've given her little poems with clues in them, taken pictures of our itinerary (where she can only see the date we leave, or airline name, etc...) and I've even written her a bunch of coded messages (her valentines present was a few clues on how to decipher the code (I still had to help her)). Based on all of the clues she's gotten, she is under the impression we're either going to Vegas or on a cruise in the Bahamas. Which is perfect, I'm pretty sure I can get her off of the plane in Orlando before she figures it out!

We are staying at the Caribbean and I have set up random things like our FP+ and a couple of reservations but not much else. On her birthday we'll eat at Citricos and the last night there I got us a table in Cinderella's Castle during the fireworks show.

What else can we do? We're staying for 4 nights.

I think you get some serious points for this one (and make the rest of us look bad in the process).

My two favorite places for a grownups evening are The Wilderness Lodge (Artist's Point for a nice dinner or a drink in the lounge) and Animal Kingdom Lodge (Jiko for dinner or again, a nice lounge). Both resorts have some fantastic scenery and are great places for a romantic stroll around the grounds after dark. awesome

You could have something from Disney Floral sent to your room for her.

I love how much time and effort you've put into this for your wife and I'm SURE she will too muchlove

Since you have already started this honeymoon/birthday trip as a surprise, with poems as clues, you could always continue the poems/clues for her once you get in the park. It could be almost like a scavenger hunt for surprises or presents you want to give her, all around the parks.

For example, you could write a poem/clue that sends her to the Emporium for a charm or keychain, you could have a clue that sends her to Aloha Isle for a dole whip, a clue could send her to Tomorrowland terrace for the Wishes dessert party(although this may pale in comparison to watching it in Cinderella's castle!) The possibilities are endless!

Dude - she's already going to be blown away with all the planning and awesome things you've done so far!!

Maybe get the memory maker or photo pass for the trip? You can ensure to get great photos during your entire trip!

yep, agreement here, you are a super hubby!

I agree re Disney floral, betsy also do gift baskets which I believe slightly cheaper and have other options (I haven't found Disney floral to be super reliable, both time I've used them they have missed things from the order but it was easily rectified).

Could you also call ahead to the resort to let them know about the reason for the trip and ask them to put you in an amazing room?

Is this your first trip to WDW?

Can you talk to my hubby??? I can private message you his info! LOL rolling

Seriously, that all sounds amazing! Maybe one of the behind the scenes tours? Each park has them. They range from $20 to $$$$$$$$ the big bucks.

Thanks, you guys are great! I like that scavenger clue in the parks idea. And, maybe the behind the scenes tours could work. My sister is "friends" with Tink, so we have seen some of the backstage stuff. I wanted to stay away from the florist idea just because its the flower festival when we go, it might be a little overkill. This'll be my second time there ( my first was last year at 33 yrs old), she has been there a few other times.

Uh, just because they are called Disney "Floral", does not mean they only do flowers. You obviously have never been to their site. Seriously , take a look before you dismiss it totally. I've used them many times with out any problems and never had a "flower" delivered.

awesome VelcroPooh! I'm a Nanny and I actually did this for the 7 year old little girl that I've worked with since she was 14 months old. I met her and her parents at MK and spent the day with her there. I made her an age appropriate scavenger hunt. I made up clues for little presents that I knew she would like.
For example, one clue I gave her was "I wear a slipper made of glass and my friends are mice that like to sing. Now you can wear me on your hand, can you guess what I am? I'm a ?"
She guessed a Cinderella ring, she was right and I took her to one of the stores and got her a Cinderella ring. I had about 5 little surprises like that for her and she loved it!

If you do a scavenger hunt, I think you should try to plan it when your sister is working and have your DW visit Tinkerbell. But what you have planned is wonderful. She is one lucky lady.
