Rent a Cabana at YC! Also I second a lightsaber build, it was so much fun (and DH now has his proudly mounted in our living room :joker:)
We've actually rented a cabana before and it was awesome! I highly recommend it to anyone who is even remotely thinking about it. We may have to do that again 😉.

We also did a behind the scenes tour at Animal Kingdom Lodge started with breakfast at Boma and then took us to the giraffe, okapi and red river hog barns - it was a really cool experience
I've never heard of this one, but it sounds AMAZING! I will definitely look into it.

    Many of my suggestions have already been mentioned. I agree with some of the non-private VIP tours, which can be found here: https://www.disneyworld.com/events-tours/. Top picks are Keys to the Kingdom, Ultimate Nights of Adventure and Ultimate Day of Thrills.

    The Yachtsman Steakhouse is one of my favorite restaurants at WDW and given you're staying at the YC, I think it's a nice dinner splurge.

    Also consider the Highway in the Sky dine around. We enjoyed this more than our full dinner at Victoria & Albert's as we got to experience a variety of restaurants, travel VIP on the monorail and finish with a fireworks viewing dessert party AND our main course was at V&A in their private dining room.

    Just worked out what D.I.N.Ks are. I suppose I'm a S.I.N.K, but, as I actually have a grown up child I prefer to be a S.K.Ier. Spending Kids Inheritance 😂

    Wife and I swam with dolphins at Epcot for our honeymoon trip....didn’t need a park pass either(we are AP holders). We followed it up with a meal at Teppan Edo

    Rent a private boat to watch the fireworks and get champagne + desserts from private dining on said boat.
    Hands down my favorite way to be really extra at WDW.
    😁

    Celebration at the top is also super fun. Apparently my go-to's are just some combination of champagne and fireworks!

    I second Highway in the Sky Dine Around. We loved it!

    I want to try the Taste of Magic Kingdom VIP Tour. It wasn’t offered the dates we were there last time.

    Massages at either of the Senses spas. We try to do this every time we go.

    I've always enjoyed Lunch with an Imagineer at Brown Derby. Each experience is different depending on the Imagineer and what they have worked on. I like that it's an intimate experience ( our last trip there were only 9 of us plus our Imagineer ) and the food is delicious.

    If I had fun money, the monorail dining around the world thing sounds like a lot of fun and right up my alley. For me there is nothing worse than splurging on one big thing and that thing ending up being "meh" or downright disappointing. I think on the monorail thing, you'll even things out a bit. I think if one place is bad then you have the next place on the list to possibly redeem everything. Or maybe that's just my weird way of thinking. lol I also think that scheduling TWO massage visits would be the BEST way to spend money at Disney! Think about how sore your poor body is while you're there. I don't think anything could feel better than having those kinks rubbed out every few days to keep you refreshed. I've even gotten to the point where I've been rethinking my Disney visits because it's just gotten sooo painful to walk around so long and so much. Ever notice when your feet hurt, it's WAY worse after you sit down for a meal and then get back up again? UGH! It doesn't matter how much I invest in the best shoes, compression socks, whatever....it's always the most painful vacation in the world but so worth it. I end each day limping and need a vacation after my vacation.
