4. The Grand 1 I’ve done a fireworks cruise (amazing) and we’ve rented pontoon boats and speed boats to go out on the Seven Seas Lagoon, but the Grand 1 is on my list.  This yacht docked at the Grand Floridian can be chartered for cruises around the lagoon, and what a posh experience that would be.  I think having ...

9. VIP Guide Like most people, I love feeling like a VIP.  I get that feeling a lot at Walt Disney World, just as part of their usual exemplary customer service, but being able to have a VIP Guide for the day would be the ultimate.  I had to laugh at the Black-ish episode where the family had the guide ...

11. Riding With A Celebrity Everyone has seen the viral video of Johnny Depp surprising guests as Capt. Jack Sparrow on Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean.  How amazing would that experience be?  And Steven Tyler often visits Disney for his birthday, and of course he rides “his” attraction, Rock N Roller Coaster.  What if you were in just the right ...
