Kick-off your stay with Mickey and Minnie’s Grand Magical Welcome from Disney’s Floral and Gifts.

It is obvious Mickey and Minnie have come to welcome you before you even set foot in your room with a Mickey door banner, Mickey’s footprints, and castle luminaries. Open the door to multiple keepsakes spread throughout your room such as Mickey vision glasses, beach towels, blanket, Glow with the Show ears, photo memory cards, Disney treats, Minnie’s floral cookie bouquet, and so much more. This memorable entrance will cost your family the pretty penny of $550.

5 – Chef’s Table Dinner @ Victoria and Albert’s

A private dining experience in the heart of the kitchen with the Head Chef of Victoria and Albert’s. Truly feel as though you are royalty as you dine with every taste request being met from a 10-course menu during this 3-hour dining experience. Even better – you are the only party to enjoy the Chef’s Table for the evening, so the focus is solely on you at this 15-year, AAA Five Diamond Award Winning Restaurant. The price begins at $250 per guest with wine pairings from $150 per guest which does not include tax and gratuity. So, if you are looking for a romantic dining experience as a couple with wine to join your food, you can plan on spending $800 at a minimum before tax and gratuity.


4 – Private Premium VIP Tour Services

A carefree day at the parks doesn’t have to be left up to you anymore! In fact, Disney has what they call VIP Tour Services available. This is an elite Cast Member that will spend the day with you exploring the parks. They will work out a schedule and guide you through the park with your recommendations. This can include getting on attractions with no wait, private transportation, and even private dining experiences. If you decide a Private Premium VIP Tour Service is something that would appeal to you, plan on spending between $425-$625 per hour, depending on the season. A minimum duration of 7 continuous hours is required and your party may include up to 10 guests. So, during the peak season at $600 for a minimum of 7 hours – you can plan on spending $4,375 for the VIP Tour Service!

1 – A Home on Disney Property @ Golden Oak

Wake up in the morning and head out to enjoy a day at the park anytime you would like! You are within Disney World property after all. It’s hard to imagine what our life would be like if we lived on Disney property. I’m not sure we’d be able to focus on getting any work done – but rather escaping away to whatever Disney World holds instead. Our top splurge goes to purchasing a home on Disney World property within the breathtaking Golden Oak community. How does a starting point of $2,000,000 (that’s $2-MILLION!) sound for one of these dream homes? Time to go play the lotto!

About Mike & Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with being Annual Passholders, Disney Vacation Club Members, and RunDisney participants. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire as many MagicBands as possible while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 13 years and are blessed with two children - our 8-year-old daughter and soon to be 2-year-old son. As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
