    Still not 100% if we can go to Florida at the end of this year or not. We did both get permission from work to go but it depends how DH's job goes later in the year. He is down to a 4 day week and it will be reviewed in a couple of months. If his hours stay the same, we can go on a tight budget. If he loses more hours or heavens forbid loses his job, then it will be out of the question.

    Anyway, if we do go, the only thing I want to push the boat out for will be our silver wedding anniversary which is in December.

    I'd love some ideas on how to celebrate this......

    Our Issy isn't a huge lover of that sort of food. :) :unsure:

    How about taking the Grand out for a Wishes Cruise? You could have a bottle of champagne and a cake ordered. :yes:

    Oh! I don't know? Do you?

    Well, if that is the case then that would be the splash out, eh? :D One night at a WDW resort and a booking of the Grand. :D

    :yes: definitely, a night in the honeymoon suite at the GF and an evening on the Grand - couldn't be better :yes:

    I'd love to book the Grand again - I'd just make sure I took some mozzie spray this time :lol: maybe we'll just have to stay onsite again for a couple of days :unsure:

    :yes: That was a lovely experience, Wendy. You were so kind to invite us along!

    A bit, but they like me :( I've tried all sorts but the little blighter's always have a good feed off me :lol:

    Sorry Issy :anxious: you would love the Grand though, the music from Wishes piped onboard, all the other boats have to stay behind the Grand, very romantic if it was just the two of you :yes:

    I don't think you have to be an onsite guest to book one of the cruises.

    Now you do have to be part of a grand gathering to book the speciality events and the Wishes cruise is one of those. Now that is a lot of fun but you are on a full boat so it is not romantic :tongue:

    Thank you so much for all of your replies so far :)

    Tom....Tink is right, I'm a VERY plain eater. I have thought of V&A in the past but it really would be a waste on me!

    Wow....that sounds absolutely perfect in every way. I don't think the budget would go that far though :unsure: It's a real shame as any other time, I would have totally gone for that. I so want to thank DH for standing by me all of the tough years we've had (those who know me understand) ....he deserves a medal the size of a dustbin lid.

    What sort of prices are we looking at for the above suggestion from Tink & Wendy?

    Johnie....I will keep the cruise in mind, thanks.

    When I checked on the Grand it was about $400 plus. :sigh: I wanted it for Herself's birthday, but whooeee, couldn't do it.

    Oh and Issy? You are pretty darn special yourself. :hug2:

    ...and you MUST check out the wc! It sure gives you some exercise working the flush with your foot. :lol:

    For dinner, how about the Blue Zoo at the Dolphin? It has more of an "adult" feel about it and the food is great. :thumbsup:

    Didn't they open the Wishes cruise to all guests last year?

    Or was I dreaming?

    Or did they change it again?

    Oh I do hope you get the chance to go! To me, just being able to go would be a wonderful gift!!! In 2 years we will be celebrating our 20th & would love to do the vow renewal ceremony-but it's not cheap!! I think I'd rather just take a family trip & celebrate that way. Good luck & I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!!!!
