Anna & Elsa’s Warm Welcome starts with a beautiful door banner on the door. Once inside, a winter wonderland of snowflake confetti and luminaries light the way to an exclusive tote filled with delicious treats that you might think was left by the royal sisters themselves.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas from Disney Parks

posted on April 28th, 2015 by Jean Volante, Manager of Dream Making, Disney Floral & Gifts/DEG


Even though Mother’s Day is a couple of weeks away, it’s the ideal window to plan for success so you look like the hero! If you’re like most, you may struggle with finding the right gift, let alone the right size, the right card and the list goes on. But if you’ve been fortunate enough to find the right gift that created the moment for your loved one, I bet it became an amazing memory for you as well. If only you could repeat that right? Want to know the secret to finding the right gift? Here it is: For the most part, women like gifting experiences that create a memory and warm the heart, one that shows you love her for the essence of her. I can hear the question now: “Where do I go for that?” How ’bout an enchanted florist, Disney Floral and Gifts?

Today I’m sharing two gifting experiences that can be shipped anywhere in the continental U.S. Take a look.

First, A Disney Frozen Memory – Ship to Home. This gift is brand new this year, created just for those of you celebrating at home. Imagine her smile when the kids surprise her with a silver box topped with a blue bow. When she opens the box, she’ll see this card.

Blog Disney Frozen Memory STH - card

She looks further and finds another silver box with this bracelet inside. And take it from me, this ice-inspired Swarovski crystal bracelet is a stunning eye-catcher. In fact, it’s the type of jewelry that goes with every outfit. Complementing the design are two sterling silver charms, one says “love” and the other is a snowflake. But, there’s one more piece.

MDGI7475852

It’s this picture frame to enhance the experience. Interested to learn how to create a magical memory with this?

MDGI7475853

Surprise her by having the kids present this gift on the eve of Mother’s Day, showing you had this holiday planned. That alone is an amazing gift. Ladies, am I right? Then, on Mother’s Day, capture an image of each child showing mom an expression of love on her special day, something they could “give back” to her. It could be as simple as the moment where they share why they love her for the essence of her. This type of experience will leave an indelible impression on the heart, yes, I said indelible. And once she places the image in the frame of the moment you captured on camera, she’ll be able to remember the experience while enjoying the bracelet.

Here’s another idea: A Magical Wish – Fulfill a Dream. For the past four years, this gift has been the coveted offering, simply because it’s so, well … so Disney.

MDGI7475854

Imagine your loved one receiving this card. Take a moment to read it.

MDGI7475855

Once she discovers the fairy tale wand included and makes her wish, which will be fulfilled by the giver of the gift, you’ll create a memory she’ll treasure. To commemorate the experience, there’s a beautiful Swarovski crystal and silver plated bracelet included that features three charms: dream, wish and believe.

MDGI7475856

The bracelet can match just about any outfit which will let her share the story of the Mother’s Day experience that you created just for her. And since there are links on the bracelet, it’s adjustable. Then, for future occasions, you could find crystal earrings or a necklace to go with the bracelet to make a set.

So here’s what to do. Check out the links above to learn more, and remember to order sooner rather than later. Since Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10, I’d order by Monday, May 4 at the latest to ensure delivery of your gift by Wednesday or Thursday, it’s always better to build in some extra time. You can order online or speak with a friendly Dream Maker at 407-WDW-GIFT (939-4438) for shipping anywhere in the continental U.S. These surprises can be delivered to any Walt Disney World Resort hotel or restaurant location.

For our guests on the west coast, these two offerings are not available at the Disneyland Resort. But the good news is there are a variety of enchanting bouquets available that will surprise and warm her heart. My favorites are the Disney Dozen – Princess Pink and the ultimate, Make a Wish featuring “fairy lights” in the vase. Our Disneyland Floral and Gifts team is available seven days a week and can be reached at 714-781-GIFT. And, by the way, we’ve listened to your request for adding more Disneyland gifting experiences and it’s coming within the next two months. So stay tuned!

Of course if you’re celebrating at one of our parks, check out our Walt Disney World Floral and Gifts or our Disneyland Floral and Gifts site. There are so many ideas you can choose from so you can provide an amazing memory while on property.

In the meanwhile, I believe this is your cue to be the hero.

February 13 – It’s Villaintine’s Day!

posted on February 13th, 2015 by Jean Volante, Manager of Dream Making, Disney Floral & Gifts/DEG


It’s Friday the 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day, and take a look at our banner below! What happened?! It looks like today has been taken over as “Villaintines Day?!.” I get a dreadful feeling that if I don’t share ideas about expressing your “Villain side,” there could be trouble! So for all our Villain’s at heart, it looks like this post is for you. And if you took the “Discover Your Disney Side” quiz and your loved one wants to be “the fairest of them all”, or would rather bring out the “beast” in those around them then this is for you too!

DOE69574852

Oh, how villains just loathe the thought of love during this time of year! In fact, just this morning I overheard “someone” talking under their breath about how they despise all those “goodie-goodies” giving lovey-dovey tokens of affection. “It’s all about indulging in the pleasures of life,” they said. “After all, who has time for relationships when one can take time for themselves, enjoying life to its fullest!”

So, for those looking to create a Disney villain “sanctuary” after a full day in the park, take heed.

At Walt Disney World Resort, start with a dramatic gift for the queen in your life with Roses to Die For. This arrangement is the perfect haunting mix of dark roses, twisted willow and spooky spider webs. Add to the malevolent ambiance with a surprise that lets you toast to a happily “evil” after with A Disney Villains Indulgence. Now you can indulge in your villainous side by sipping sparkling berry juice in exclusive black goblets while enjoying delectable chocolate truffles in exquisite flavors representing the essence of our wicked women. The magic continues with a one-of-a-kind keepsake: an exclusive matted illustration by Disney artist Charles Wissig, featuring our evil ladies and their esteemed signatures.

DOE69574853

So, here’s your chance to channel your inner Disney villain. When visiting Walt Disney World Resort, amaze your loved one by preparing a villain “sanctuary” featuring “heart stopping” surprises. Simply visit our Heroes & Villains page or call a Dream Maker at 407-WDW-GIFT (939-4438). When visiting Disneyland Resort check out the Disneyland Roses to Die For or call a Dream Maker at 714-781-GIFT(4438).

And be sure to tune in tomorrow, where I’ll be wrapping up these 14 Days of Love with a surprise that’ll be sure to “melt” your heart.

By the way, it seems as if these villainous influences are starting to rub off on me. There’s a mirror on my wall … and for some reason I feel the need to ask it a question …

Day 12 – Experience a Fairy Tale Proposal

posted on February 12th, 2015 by Jean Volante, Manager of Dream Making, Disney Floral & Gifts/DEG


For those who’ve tuned in to learn the voting results from yesterday’s post, we have the outcome. We asked you to vote for your favorite Valentines gifting idea and you have spoken. The winner of the best Valentines magical moment is The Valentine’s Collection. Whether it’s Valentine’s Day or another special occasion, you have ideas to create a special Disney moment for a loved one.

Speaking of winning magical moments, let’s talk about some winning fairy tale proposal ideas! If your love is a Princess at heart or Disney enthusiast, then getting engaged at the place where dreams come true is the ultimate proposal location. But, who do you contact and what are your options?

daldal739881

As part of our Disney 14 Days of Love series, today I’m sharing Disney Floral & Gifts proposal ideas at Walt Disney World. If you’re wondering what this series is all about, check out our first story and take the Discover your Disney Side quiz to learn more.

So, back to you, our favorite topic! Proposing is a big event in your life, and we’ve learned you’re looking for charming ideas at special locations like a romantic Disney restaurant or the Cinderella Castle right before the fireworks. Your ultimate goal? To create the most enchanting proposal and celebration experience your loved one will talk about for years to come.

To help we recently enhanced our engagement/proposal page to feature four proposal ideas such as:

dashjk654321

dsahjkl654322

  • Be our guest and make reservations at a romantic Disney dining location to set the stage for your proposal with Crown Her a Princess.

dsakjl654323

  • Offer a “Once Upon a Time” proposal at a carriage ride, dining location or even in the privacy and comfort of your resort room.

The possibilities are endless really, simply because we can deliver your proposal surprise to Disney dining locations, excursions and resort rooms. The ideas called out above though help to provide you with established experiences.

So here’s what to do:

  1. Take a look at the four proposal ideas on our engagement/proposal page and select the location and gifting experience you like best. Next, make reservations with that location. For example, for Disney dining reservations, call 407-WDW-DINE. For carriage ride reservations, call 407-WDW-PLAY. Our Dream Makers arrange for delivery of your gift and celebration, but can’t book your dining or excursion reservations at this time.
  2. Order your proposal gift for delivery to that location.
  3. Order your romantic celebration for your resort room. You’ll especially want to check out From Mickey and Minnie with Love, Presenting Your Royal Princess-Adult and my favorite, “A Wish Come True – Two Day Romantic Experience

Take time to review your options so you feel comfortable with next steps. You can order online, yet, we also understand this is a big event and you may want to speak with a Dream Maker to walk you through the process, that’s totally fine! After the proposal, your gift will become a keepsake to remember, one they’ll be able to share for years to come. Only at Disney can you receive a “glass slipper” and be proclaimed a Princess by your Prince Charming.

And speaking of creating a moment to remember, you have to watch this video featuring a real life proposal here at Walt Disney World. Jake, did such a good job convincing his sweetheart, Maria, that this was just a photo shoot, that when he actually proposed using the Wishing Rose and bracelet proposal idea, she said yes! Take a look!

And while we’re talking about surprises, tomorrow is Friday the 13th. I have this dreadful feeling something villainous is stirring. This is not good! #Disney14DaysofLove

But, if you’re wondering what this series is all about, check out the Discover your Disney Side quiz to learn more.

daldal739881

The easiest way to create a Disney magical moment for your loved one is to tie-in their favorite Disney story or character with your gift, card message and delivery location. Below are some ideas featuring a variety of Disney-themed rose bouquets and gifts for couples, dads and families. But again, for our friends at home, you can modulate these ideas with the help of your local florist and embellishments they may have for traditional gifts.

Let’s get started!

DEV750272

1. The Disney Dozen – red roses

  • Magical insight: 13 long stemmed red roses featuring one pixie-dusted wishing rose.

    • Delivery idea: Send to the resort on Valentine’s “Eve” since the family will be in the park most of the holiday.
    • Park availability: Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort

    DEV750276

    5. A Wish Come True – two day romantic experience (my personal favorite)

    • Magical insight: Surprise a loved one at your resort with roses on Valentine’s eve and an unexpected romantic second night wish and surprise on Valentine’s Day.
    • Card message idea 1st night: “An expression of my affection on Valentine’s “Eve” so you’re one of the first to know how much you’re loved.”
    • Card message idea 2nd night: “On Valentine’s Day, I saved the best for last. A magical wish awaits just for you.”
    • Park availability: Walt Disney World Resort only. However for Disneyland, you can send roses on the first day and the 2nd day, Mickey and Minnie with Love- In Room Celebration.

    So, if you’re celebrating the holiday while at the parks, we can help. You can visit our Walt Disney World, DisneyFloralandGifts.com Valentine’s page and order online, or speak with a Dream Maker at 407-WDW-GIFT. If visiting Disneyland, visit our DisneyFloralandGifts.com Valentine’s page to order online, or speak with a Dream Maker at 714-781-GIFT.

    Now here’s your chance to share input. Would you vote to let us know which magical moment you like best? In tomorrow’s post I’ll share the results as well as some new “engaging” ideas I’d like to “propose.” In fact, you’ll want to stay tuned to watch a real-life fairy tale proposal that took the bride-to-be by surprise, so much so that she said no!

Create a Big Birthday Celebration with 14 Days of Love

posted on February 10th, 2015 by Jean Volante, Manager of Dream Making, Disney Floral & Gifts/DEG


“Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear…” well, you know the rest. We all know this song as the anthem to a very special day! A day filled with laughter, love and celebration. But can you imagine celebrating your special day at the place where dreams come true? For those of you who’d love a birthday celebration at Walt Disney World or the Disneyland Resort, you’re going to love this! And according to the “Discover Your Disney Side” quiz, if your loved one is fun, enthusiastic, sweet, kind, loyal or your best pal, then read on because this post is also for you! If you’re just joining us and wondering what the excitement is all about, check out our introduction post to this year’s Disney 14 Days of Love and take the quiz!

daldal739881

One of the most popular requests we receive from guests is, “Can Mickey come to our resort room to wish my child a Happy Birthday?” So our creative team took on the challenge and designed a birthday celebration experience that felt just as if Mickey and the gang came to your Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort room! Imagine this: you just celebrated your child’s birthday with a full day in the parks. As you return to your Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort room, you notice a “Happy Birthday” banner hanging on your door. When you open the door, you see that your resort room is filled with surprises left by Mickey and the rest of the Fab 5, all in celebration of your child’s birthday! Imagine the jaw-dropping memory you’ll create.

birwdw384758

With Mickey and Pals Big Birthday Wish at Walt Disney World and Mickey and Friends Birthday Bash at the Disneyland Resort, every member of the Disney Fab 5 brought goodies and surprises to create a one-of-a-kind surprise in celebration of their special birthday! Mickey Mouse made sure to bring essential birthday party items including birthday ears and balloons. And in true Minnie fashion, that sweet mouse brought a delicious candy cake. Goofy, Donald and Pluto also brought along surprises for the celebration, including a few “goofy” gags, “quacky” surprises and “doggy” keepsakes.

And, you can also customize these experiences as well as personalize them. For example, you can add on additional birthday ears for the rest of the family as well as have them embroidered. After you enjoy it here, take it with you and use it year after year for birthday celebrations at home.

These resort experiences are available now for purchase. You can order Mickey and Pals Big Birthday Wish at Disney World Floral & Gifts online or speak with a Dream Maker at 407-WDW-GIFT. For Mickey and Friends Birthday Bash at Disneyland, you can order online or call a Dream Maker 714-781-GIFT. Once ordered our Dream Makers will prepare the surprise for you while you’re away from your room.

And speaking of surprises, I have a secret to share. Our creative team has begun re-imagining this grand celebration to bring an all new, over-the-top experience right to your Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort room. In the spirit of Disney 14 Days of Love, I’m giving you an exclusive look at some of our concept art for this brand new experience! The picture below represents possible art for five new bins for the new birthday surprise. What do you think?

bbawdw293847

Day 9 – Fresh Cake Magical Moments with 14 Days of Love

posted on February 9th, 2015 by Jean Volante, Manager of Dream Making, Disney Floral & Gifts/DEG


Today, you’re in for a real “treat”. In day 9 of our 14 Days of Love series, I’m announcing something “fresh” and new that should make quite a few wishes come true. Because you kept asking, we listened. How could Disney say no to you, right?! :)

daldal739881

And, for those following us in our series who have loved ones with character traits that make others feel so very special, this post is for you. Here’s an idea to create a magical moment just for them. If you’re just joining us and wondering what the excitement is all about, check out last Sunday’s post to take the “Discover Your Disney Side” quiz to learn more.

In the past, you’ve asked if Disney Floral & Gifts could deliver a fresh cake to your resort. Until today, we only offered a variety of candy cakes. But today, that changes! So, if you’re coming to Walt Disney World and celebrating a birthday or special occasion you can now select from three fresh cake surprises that includes two cake flavors for each.

Announcing…

Mickey’s Celebration Cake

duidui736991

Mickey’s Magical Celebration

duidui725112

And the ultimate?

Mickey’s Grand Birthday Party. And, even though this image below only shows one very large singing balloon … this gifting experience comes with a very very large bundle of balloons too. In fact, there were so many we couldn’t fit them in the image below.

duidui7356993

Let’s talk about these decadent fresh cakes for a moment. Yum! These 6”, two-tiered round cakes serve about 4-6 people depending on the size of the slice. You have two flavors to choose from in all three offerings, either chocolate or vanilla. Along with the piping at the bottom and top of the cake, there are two adorable Mickey and Minnie chocolate ears on top. And what’s written on the top? It says, “Celebrate!” So, for those celebrating other occasions such as an anniversary, cheerleading competition or marathon of sorts, you can choose the Mickey’s Celebration Cake and embellish the gift with additional personalized keepsakes to really “sing” to their special moment here at Disney World.

Like I said earlier, these gifting experiences can be delivered to all Walt Disney World resorts. Once created, we will take your surprise to the resort and the resort will take it up to your room, after you’re checked in of course.

So, here’s one more “magical” idea to add to make this cake experience a jaw dropping moment for the little ones. Take a look at our 4’ Mickey’s In The House air walking balloon. Imagine bringing the little ones in your room to see your choice of cake celebration and this over the top Mickey? It could appear just as if he came to the party! Because he’s an air walker…he’ll move around the room all on his own too. And if you’d like to take him home with you, simply insert a straw into the balloon and let out the helium. Then you can have him re-inflated once at home. Clearly there are ideas here … lol.

To get started, just click on to any of the links above and you can begin creating your surprise. So, while you’re busy “imagineer-ing” your birthday surprise, I’m preparing to share even bigger birthday news tomorrow. So stay tuned! #Disney14DaysOfLove.
