    Question Special Ways To Spoil Disneyland-Loving SO In The Parks?

    My SO is taking me to Disneyland for Valentine's Day as a xmas present (we live in Seattle, WA)! Although we've been before together once, it was with family, so we're absolutely stoked to be able to just do our own thing instead of going with a family plan! (Plus, could you GET anymore romantic?!)

    Here's the thing... I want to do something special for him as a surprise, but I can't figure out what. We already have reservations at Blue Bayou, Carthay Circle etc (have been to BB but not CC). I wanted to have something as a kind of 'Surprise!' waiting at our hotel room when we landed, since he booked it and would never expect me to pull something like that off, but all of the Disney Floral offerings are 1) Obviously geared towards women, 2) Waaaay above my price range for that sort of thing (I'd rather just buy a whole dinner, honestly!) I'm still really attracted to that idea though... emailed our hotel (Anaheim Camelot), but haven't heard back if they offer service like that themselves (flowers, chocolates, something like that).

    I've racked my brain, thinking back on all of my past trips. Is there anything you guys can think of that I can arrange that would be kind of cool, less than $100? We've both been to Disneyland many times (I'm a previous AP), but never have gotten a chance to do the 'nicer' things like eat at the special restaurants. Maybe that's an option? Does Trader Sam's do anything neat? Or other within-walking distance Anaheim businesses?

    I truly appreciate any and all ideas! It's going to be an extremely special trip regardless, but I just really wanted to do something to surprise him that went above and beyond.

    Disney Floral does have some gift baskets for under $100.00. They have a cute coffee one and a cute chocolate one, both under $100.00 I don't know what the delivery policy is other than it says they deliver to 'some' offsite hotels, but only to the front desk. You can also contact CC and they can do something 'special' for your dinner, like a special dessert.

    Maybe you could order something extra-special from Disneystore (like a watch or piece of art) and present it to him in a special way. Or slip it to your waiter or maitre d' at CC or BB to bring out as 'dessert'.

    Try to surprise him with a ride in the Lilly Belle or the Mark Twain wheelhouse!

    This is a great idea, that wouldn't cost anything!

    Kinda spendy but maybe a couples-spa treatment of some sort.

    Order a cake! It can be brought out as dessert at one of your dinner reservations.

    The Lily Belle is off the tracks for refurb

    The best access for the MT wheelhouse is in the morning, if I remember correctly it too is going down for a refurb soon but I'm not sure of the date

    Tender seat ride on the train?

    Have personalized ears made?

    I'm sure you'll get plenty of other great ideas from other chatters before your trip!

    What about a "Walk in Walt's Footsteps" tour? now it includes Walt's apartment above the firehouse. Might be a little spendy though, you could eat really well at the Napa Rose for the same money.

    This could be a bit extreme, but pop the question.

    Love him to death, but I'm not going to rob him of the experience of proposing! He already knows I'd marry him in a heart beat. We're just having fun enjoying life and all of the big experiences that come with it, one at a time

    Being that I've already told him that Club 33 is down for refurbishment, that joke would not only be cruel, but nonsensical!
