    We got engaged on Christmas Day too! Happy happy happy :cloud9:

    It won't be a Disney wedding - infact am going to have to work hard to get Al to even agree to wearing the Mickey ears wedding hat! Not sure of exact plans yet but it'll be a quiet affair - most likely to marry at home in the UK (our parents are too old to travel) but then maybe honeymooning at WDW. Our annual May trip to the Boardwalk is already booked for 2012 so this is the most likely candidate so far....

    Anyway, we would appreciate any simple experiences that we can add to make this trip extra 'special'. We're not into being the centre of attention, but would like to make it special in a quiet way - if that makes sense?? Special Meals, special locations, private locations, tours etc.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated, thanks
    Ali

    Fireworks cruise was the best. It gets my vote. We went to WDW for our honeymoon. We left Disney for two off - site trips. We spent a day at Cape Canaveral/Kennedy whatever it's called. It was amazing! We also visited Cypress Gardens and took a boat ride. Very beautiful and quiet, romantic....

    Thanks everyone. I like the idea of firework cruise - and also watching from the Polynesian beach or on top of Contemporary. We've also been talking about Cirque du Soleil for years yet never been. Not sure about V&A - that would involve being dressed up smartly which we really do struggle with !

    Still not sure when the wedding :marry: will be, but will keep you posted. Has taken 11 years to get to the engagement stage :lol:. At least this time I have some control over the timescales... :wink: !!

    How about a romantic round of golf at the Palm? :D
    Seriously though, fireworks cruise, meal at one of the signatures or a couples spa treatment maybe?

    Congratulations

    I'm going to suggest getting tickets to Cirque du Soleil and then after dinner in DTD or on the Boardwalk. Just a night that is very much not the normal Disney park night. We did Cirque in 2009 with dinner planned after for Le Cellier. The late arrival time for dinner was pushing it, so if I had to do it again I would pick a resturant in DTD or on the Boardwalk.
