Hi im new to mousewait and after reading through post after post ive finally decided to join. Me and my girlfriend are going to WDW in October for two weeks. I have been before with my family when I was younger but this is my girlfriends first visit to Orlando and I want to make it a memorable one. We are staying at the port orleans riverside and we are really looking forward to being immersed in all things disney. Is there anything you Disney addicts recommend we do in order to make this trip of a lifetime extra special?

Wishes desert package and visiting this CM. - dlmickeymouseCM  2404.5 #51 2:31PM
Yes, I totally agree. I was going to say Wishes Dessert Party also. That will make your trip extra special. Oh...and Welcome to MW! Β°oΒ° - poohbr1205  21.2 #159 3:30PM
And Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party too! Also, make the Wishes desert reservations as soon as they open up for the night you went, they go fast! - dlmickeymouseCM  2404.5 #51 5:14PM

Hey and welcome to mouse wait. Depending on your stay u could do Mickey's notso scary Halloween party or mickeys merry Christmas party. All other suggestions r listed. - yessy  216.1 #39 4:01PM
Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party starts in mid November. Lol - dlmickeymouseCM  2404.5 #51 6:42PM
Welcome to MouseWait! Oh there are so many thins you can do! Since your going in October do mickeys not scary Halloween party, and a special food and wine festival tour or event would be great! Also there is the fireworks dessert party at mk, and a reserved viewing of fantastic with a meal and I think you can also get just desserts. Also you can order some special things to get sent to your room from Disney floral and gifts, they have a ton of things to make the trip special there! And what everyone else's said is also great! Have fun! - nodell111  166.4 #51 6:51PM
Taking the boat from Riverside to DTD is peaceful and beautiful. The atmosphere at Port Orleans is just wonderful. - ariel116  99.3 #68 2:14PM
We LOVE Riverside! Couldn't agree more with Ariel... take the boat! You'll love it! - BagGal  239.7 #32 3:33PM
Gonna do the boat ride!! Staying at POR for the first time. So excited to experience so many new things this trip!! Even when you're an ol' timer to Disney, there is so much to do and experience that every time feels like the first time!! - mrsincredible  1062.3 #4 4:04PM
Welcome to the MW family!  There's so much to do other than the parks, so read up and find fun things to do.  There's visiting The Boardwalk or going to Downtown Disney.  I could go on and on :)  Check out allears.net for all your planning info and extra special experiences. - DizneyGirl  763.1 #7 2:22PM
Do a fireworks cruise - skcanfield  511.9 #14 2:22PM
Welcome to MW :) - disfansince97  71.0 #85 3:32PM
You might want to check out Mickey's Not So Very Scary Halloween Party.  We went to WDW in early Oct one year and the party was very popular.  We didn't go because our kids were very, very young, but we plan to go someday!  Have fun and welcome to MW! - BagGal  239.7 #32 3:35PM
Welcome! don't worry u don't have to try hard to make her trip special :) it will just be. Maybe the little boats u can ride just the 2 of u. If u plan ur trip with AAA u can a free voucher for that and for private seating for wishes fireworks - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #69 3:35PM
Well the seating isn't totally private but almost and its nice - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #69 3:37PM
Welcome to MW. Enjoy your trip. All my suggestions are listed - 5disneylovers  1034.7 #5 3:35PM
Oh Maybe put a ring on it .. Lol - 5disneylovers  1034.7 #5 3:37PM
LOL!!! - mrsincredible  1062.3 #4 4:05PM
Welcome toMW! Don't worry, i'm sure whatever you two do together will always be memorable to her! After all it is The Happiest Place on Earth! ;-) - JessiBelle22  78.4 #81 3:38PM
Hello and welcome!! - disneycm  653.1 #9 3:40PM
Need to share a Dole Whip!!!!!! And welcome! - BuckeyeBrandi  35.6 #122 4:06PM
Welcome to the MW fam!! I would say a charater breakfast is a must!! They aren't just for kids, you know, lol!! Chef Mickey's is a great one to experience first, as you get to meet the fab five!! Just being there will be enough magic to last her a long time. Take things slow, don't rush, savor the moments, and enjoy!! - mrsincredible  1062.3 #4 4:07PM
Welcome have fun take your time so u dont where yourself out - jeri814  125.7 #60 4:08PM
You look a little young, or I'd say propose! Lol! - timonT  338.8 #20 4:14PM
Welcome! October is a great month to visit. Two weeks? I'm jealous! No matter what you decide to do, I guarantee it will be extra special! Maybe consider a tour like Backstage Magic or plan a visit to the spa (Saratoga Springs has a great one). Check out the restaurant menus on AllEars.net and pick something special. My personal favorite is Boma at AKL! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1134.0 #3 4:30PM
Welcome! - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1175.4 #138 4:33PM
Welcome!! I agree w/everyone's suggestions here. Anything u do at disney will be memorable. Just being there 2gether is enough. I always go w/my family and have gone w/friends. I went w/my bf and it was really great b/c we experienced all of the rides together,character breakfast,meals,fireworks,ice cream,waking up early,etc.etc. U can also rent little "mouse boats" at either polynesian or contemporary. U put on lifejackets and drive around bay lake in front of MK,etc. U can also rent a bike at polynesian to ride around together. Share a dole whip in MK or polynesian or share a sundae at Ghiradelli's at DTD. Pick a romantic spot in front of the castle to watch fireworks and at Epcot for illuminations. Get a silhouette painting of the two of u done on main street or a Disney caricature at AK. Get a professional photographer take ur pic on main street in front of the castle! Buy mickey and minnie ears and wear them around together. Go visit the disney wedding chapel..hehe:D. Etc.etc.etc...the possibilities are endless. Just being at Disney brings out the fun-loving kid in all of us and it's def a bonding experience. Hope that helps. I'm sry for the long post. I babble and ramble when I'm excited about anything related to Disney!! LOL - mickeynme  172.5 #49 5:50PM
Welcome to MW ! You have got to experience the hoop dee doo dinner show ! U won't be sorry !!!! It's the best show and great food ! - shewsluvwdw  58.0 #95 5:51PM
Hi! Welcome to MW!! You can actually look on the Disney World site itself & search for special things you can do while your there. You should also check out All Ears.net, that's a great helpful site too. On those sites you'll be able to find all the info you need to have the most magical time at Disney. - DesiBelle9  25.5 #142 5:52PM
Hope u have an amazing time whatever u do btw! :) - mickeynme  172.5 #49 5:52PM
Also, Food & Wine Festival at Epcot is a must see! If you don't drink wine, I hear the food is just as good. - dlmickeymouseCM  2404.5 #51 6:45PM
I hear the CM's at this year's festival will be top notch! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1134.0 #3 7:33PM
Good to know! I'll be glad to join their ranks! - dlmickeymouseCM  2404.5 #51 7:34PM
I usually go during October/November to wdw...food and wine festival...if not a wine drinker, there is also many different beer from all around the world...also a must mickeys not so scary halloween party.... - islandgirl58  333.2 #21 6:49PM
