You can even choose a champagne cruise complete with dinner and dancing. No matter what your interests are or your familiarity with boating, you’ll find a great option.

No trip to Orlando would be complete without a trip to Disney World and / or Universal, but there are also some quirky, interesting, off-the-beaten-road theme parks you may not know about. These can make for the ultimate quirky anniversary outing! Take a trip to Dinosaur World, the largest dino-themed attraction in the world, visit Fun Spot Action Park for go-cart racing and tons of fun, or head out to WonderWorks, the upside down building where you can take a hands-on approach to learning more about the interesting world of science. Take your sweetie to one of these parks for an unforgettable adventure that’ll be one for the record books!

Stay in and relax!

You may think that your perfect anniversary evening in Orlando must include wining and dining, but what if you relax in your own private Orlando vacation home instead of spending hundreds out on the town? What if you prepare a fresh, delicious meal in your chef’s kitchen, take advantage of your private Jacuzzi, and relax on your private porch? This can be the perfect ending to your day and the perfect way to celebrate the life that you and your spouse have create together.
