    Anniversary Suggestions

    I am taking my wife to Disneyland the first week of January (3rd through the 7th) as a combo Christmas / Anniversary trip.

    Just looking for suggestions on how I could help make the trip special.

    Re: Anniversary Suggestions

    First of all, if you go to City Hall on Main Street, for free you can get anniversary buttons

    I'd suggest taking her to some of the nicer eating places like Blue Bayou and Napa Rose, both have excellent food and have very romantic atmospheres.

    I'd also suggest taking some easy strolls together around the park in the evening, just to admire all of the Christmas lights and such. New Orleans Square is especially romantic.

    Hope that helps! Have a great trip!

    What she said ^^
    Plus you could do the Fantasmic Dessert Buffet. Pick out some champagne glasses together and have them engraved with the date

    Eat a bunch of churros and chili dogs then go on ToT.

    Hold her hair as she throws up to show that you still care.

    I agree with pineapplewhipaddict.

    Make reservations at Blue Bayou or Napa Rose (call ahead of time, like TODAY!!)
    If you're going to go to Blue Bayou, make sure to ask for a table by the water when you walk up to the podium. It might make your wait a few minutes longer but it is well worth it.

    Re: Anniversary Suggestions

    Thanks to everyone for your suggestions.
    For the Fantasmic Dessert Buffet, do you still have to wait until the morning to try to make reservations, or can you do it in advance? And if so, how would I go about doing it.

    If you can, stay at the Grand Californian, especially on the concierge level. Also, let them book you reserved seats for Fantasmic, Aladdin, etc. as they are prepared to do for special guests. And definitely eat at the Napa Rose and have a massage or spa treatment as your time and budget allows. Enjoy!!

    Re: Anniversary Suggestions

    If I was your wife, and you'd probably know if I was, I reckon a 4-day trip to anywhere would be a pretty nice anniversary present.

    Top it off with a nice meal (as suggested above), and you have yourself some romantic gold.

    Strolls through New Orleans Square and down Main Street are always nice, as suggested, and if she's anything like my girlfriend then she'd also appreciate being taken to Sephora and asked to "pick summat nice, luv, and I'll buy".

    Just without the faux English accent.

    You can call 60 days in advance...there is a contact number for Disneyland on it's official website if you go to the "Contact Us" page...they should be able to take care of you You can do the same thing for reserving for many other dining options previously mentioned here.

    It doesn't get much better than Napa Rose. Not only is it the best restaurant at DLR by a longshot, but it's also one of the best in all of Orange County. Steakhouse 55 (formerly Granville's) at the DL Hotel is also a good choice for a romantic meal, with quality comparable to other fancy steakhouses (Ruth's Chris, Morton's, etc.). Finally, Yamabuki (Paradise Pier Hotel) is a very good upscale Japanese restaurant. I've had several good meals at each. To me, Blue Bayou is just a tourist trap (albeit one with a lovely setting). And you can't do a champagne toast at Blue Bayou.

    Re: Anniversary Suggestions

    We always go to Blue Bayou when we're there on our anniversary (twice). Of course we always have the kids with us too. We make sure to be done with dinner for the fireworks. They took on a special meaning, "Remember When," during the 50th. Another anniversary thing to do is to go see the petrified tree stump that Walt gave to Lillian for their anniversary and to ride the Mark Twain.
