Flower and Garden Festival, Candlelight Processional, Private Dessert Illuminations Party, and Food and Wine at Epcot. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and Wishes Fireworks Cruise at the Magic Kingdom. Osborne Lights at Disney Hollywood Studios.

Edited to add (thanks to Amy and Michelle for the reminders): Star Wars weekends, KTTK tour, 25th birthday of WDW (with a Castle Cake), the Millenium Celebration (was at Epcot on the day it launched - Celebrate the Future Hand in Hand was my ALL TIME favorite celebration), 100 Years of Magic, Happiest Celebration on Earth, and Year of a Million Dreams. Also the AP Preview for Expedition Everest. cool

Also celebrated my first full week of marriage while honeymooning at the Grand Floridian back in 1990. What a great place to start married life.

I feel very fortunate to be able to list all of these: 15th anniversary celebration of WDW, 100 Years of Magic, Happiest Celebration on Earth, and Year of a Million Dreams...and lucky enough to have won a dream! grin

For the annual events, I've made it to ESPN the Weekend, Flower & Garden Festival, Food & Wine Festival, Candlelight Processional, Osborne Lights, and MVMCP. (Must work on adding Night of Joy to that list!)

I was there for the AP preview weekends of Expedition Everest and Soarin'.

I've been there on Valentine's Day, my 30th birthday, tax day (they made a special pin for this - and I bought it!), Cinco de Mayo (another pin!), Labor Day, and Thanksgiving. This year, I'll add Halloween to the list if I go with my parents.

Special things...Keys to the Kingdom tour and the Illuminations cruise with the All Thingys!

But most of all, I got engaged at WDW! It doesn't get much more special than that! kiss

Holidays/celebrations: married at the Poly/honeymooned at WDW, celebrated 10th wedding anniversary at WDW, celebrated my birthdays there 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, and 2007, and Halloween 3x.

I have done MNSSHP 3x, Keys to the Kingdom at MK, the Segway tour at Epcot, F&W fest multiple times, Flower & Garden fest multiple times, Star Wars weekends multiple times, Osborne Lights, Cake Castle, YOMD, Millenium, 100 years, Happiest Celebration, and AP preview of Chester & Hester's at AK.

I want to add Night of Joy, CP, and MVMCP to the list at some point! smiley

My very first trip was in 1976 (at age 12). MK was the only park then. Things had a real patriotic flare, and it was very special -- no matter how long those lines were for E-ticket attractions!!!

Since then, we've done much of what others have mentioned. One thing no one else has mentioned so far was for my DH's 40'th birthday. I ordered him an event thru Gifts of a Lifetime. It was a scavenger hunt based on Indiana Jones at MGM (it'll always be MGM to me!). It was a lot of fun seeing what happened next. That was in December 2000.
