I was of the mind that, as you say, with Illuminations being more ground based, you would get a better view of it from the boat?

MK fireworks have always been my favourite of the two though so that may now be back on the table!
Dont forget things always look smaller on a photo as well. I can honestly say all 5 of us were totally blown away . From new reports the new fireworks are better so really dont need to see the projections but Ive booked the dessert party on the plaza just to make sure we see that park of the fireworks . I always think watching them from different view points makes them better as you do miss different things. I didnt realise just how much of mk the fireworks cover until we did this. Its $318 I think same as the illuminations one .

Depends on the budget but this year for a special Birthday we did a small private dessert party at UK pubside in Epcot. We got to choose the food and drinks to suit us and it was AMAZING we honestly felt like royalty I believe you can ask about doing an add in of a ride at the end of the night too. I never realised you could do such a small party like this having seen the massive wedding events but you can. It's certainly not cheap but i'm so glad I found Lurkyloos blog that explained how to go about it!

For my 40th 50th and our 30th and 35th anniversersys and our early retirement snowbird trips we've always done things out side the box
Discovery cove sea venture manatee swim on crystal river war birds flight parachute jump Daytona watched a launch from the beach Big Cat rescue and so many more out side of Disney as we feel we can do that any time
We loved V&A a anniversary gift from our sons but it cost us more for an on site night we went luxuary than the meal and tip and I've had better meals off site
Our favourite ever and it's our boys and their parntnrs too,now has been our meerkat experience at Busch which they don't do very often itbwas amazing just watching these little guys and getting to know them and their place in the community

So, plans have changed slightly!

We have upgraded and are now staying at AKL for five nights so we have decided against the Wanyama Safari since we'll be at AKL anyway and we'll probably try and get an ADR for either Jiko or Sanaa since we have the dining plan.

So I'm now looking for another option to replace that!

We have Discovery Cove and SeaVenture booked. My DM and DF want a cabana, so they'll be booking that anyway.

We have an amazing holiday booked and we're going to make some great memories. It's all going to be special so maybe I don't need to do anything else and just enjoy the fact that I'm going to be celebrating in my favourite place in the world.

Would still be nice to mark the occasion somehow though.
