How to Surprise Someone With a Special Gift On a Walt Disney World Vacation

If you want to surprise someone, just the very act of booking a Walt Disney World vacation and surprising your family or special someone with the news is a gift of its own.

However, sometimes you want to go the extra mile and add even more Disney Magic and Pixie Dust to the mix. When this happens, it’s good to know that Disney has an impressive range of special ways that you can add to the magic of your Walt Disney World celebration or special occasion — no matter what it is.

Here are four fun and unique Disney services that you can use to help take an already memorable Walt Disney World vacation to the next level, with a suite of Disney value-added extras.

If you want to make a big impression on a loved one, family member or anyone else for whatever reason, Disney Floral and Gifts is a great place to start.

Through this Walt Disney World service you can find a huge range of options, from floral arrangements, to gift packages and gift baskets that will be custom designed for you and delivered to a Walt Disney World hotel room on your behalf.

Through Disney Floral and Gifts you can create your surprise gift in any number of ways. You can start with a gift basket (or other available containers) and select the unique items from an available list that will create something as unique as the recipient.

Or, you can shop for items by

  • character,
  • special occasion,
  • holidays and
  • many other ways.

Creating a custom gift or a magical Disney Valentine has never been easier. When you have the helpful Cast Members at Disney Floral and Gifts working for you, you can rest assured that your special someone will be most impressed by the unexpected surprise you have in store.

Is there a better way to up the ante when it comes to Disney Magic?

Disney’s Fine Art Photography service is one of my favourite magical extras. Everyone loves to have their photo taken at Walt Disney World while on vacation. This is one of the classic photo memories for so many guests — and has been ever since the park first opened in 1971.

But did you know that Disney offers a very special service for those who want to elevate their photographic experience? That’s right, through Disney Fine Art Photography you will find a number of options to have professional photos taken of you and your family in a wide range of ways.

Professional photographers will take the reigns and provide access to locations that you could never do on your own. Looking for those dream photos of your family in the Magic Kingdom with no other guests in sight? This is just one of the many offerings you will find here. Packages range in price from a couple of hundred dollars to nearly $2,000.00, depending on the location and exclusivity of the photo session and what you actually receive (some include a 16” x 24” canvas of an image).

So whether you are looking for a casual family photo taken by a professional Disney photographer, or a more exclusive portrait as a memory keepsake, there is something for you as part of the offering at Disney Fine Art Photography.

Celebrating a Special Occasion at Walt Disney World

Everything that I have outlined above — and more — can also be found by visiting the Walt Disney World Special Occasion pages of their website.

Here you will find an impressive range of big and small ways that you can celebrate whatever occasion you wish to celebrate with the added ingredient of Disney Magic. Any of these will be sure to delight whomever it is that you aim to surprise or impress.

On these pages, celebrations are categorized into options including:

  • A Birthday,
  • First Visit to Walt Disney World,
  • A Personal Triumph,
  • A special Reunion and, of course,
  • True Love.

Even still, there are so many options available here that you can creatively use them to celebrate more unique occasions, such as impressing your special Princess or celebrating a once-in-a-lifetime event like a Sweet 16 or Quinceañera,

Some the fun options that you will find here (big and small) are:

  • marriage, honeymoon or engagement gifts,
  • carriage rides,
  • the ability to have your resort room decorated in a special theme, such as a Disney Pirate theme,
  • custom t-shirt designs,
  • various tour options and
  • Disney gifts of all shapes and sizes.

So no matter what you may be celebrating, leave it to the magical fairies at Walt Disney World to offer something ideal for your special occasion.
