Celebrating a Special Occasion in OrlandoDoes anyone have any suggestions to help us celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary and thank my in-laws?
From Caroline FindleyWe are heading to Orlando from the UK in 9 weeks time. My lovely in-laws are treating the whole family to this holiday, and we are trying to think of something special to treat them to. It was their 50th wedding anniversary last weekend so it would be nice to celebrate that some more too while we are there.

We already have reservation for Be Our Guest as a group, so I'm thinking some kind of VIP or backstage type experience might be good, maybe Dine with Shamu? The rating isn't great on this site though...
Does anyone have any suggestions? I would really appreciate all your experienced feedback!
Thanks in advance

From Elissa DickNot sure what parks you are doing but the Wishes desert party in the Magic Kingdom ( if they are running it this year) is a lovely way to round off a busy day. Or what about the Brown Derby in the Hollywood Studios this can get you preferential seating for Fantasmic.

Seaworld dine with Shamu is great. Or for a really special day why not go to Discovery cove. It is quite a bit more exspensive but its worth the money a really special day out.
From Kelly MuggletonHi Caroline, if they are interested in backstage at Seaworld I have done all of the tours they run (as of Sept 2012).

The Wild Arctic behind the scenes tour is excellent and I highly recommend this.
Also, the Dolphin Tour offers a short training session with the dolphins in Dolphin Cove. Sealion tour is also very good.
For Disney, how about dinner at the Royal Table in the castle? We did this for my parents 25th anniversary and they were treated very very well and still have the souvenir glasses they were presented with.
From Caroline FindleyThanks guys, all of those are great suggestions. I guess its too much to just do them all...so I had better try to narrow it down somehow!
