I tried using this expression but a friend of mine who lives in Japan said it is feminine. I tried searching about this online but couldn't find any indication that it is. Is it really feminine? if it is, how do guys express excitement/elation?
わくわく is not feminine at all, but a little childish.
楽しい or 楽しみ is a better expression to use in a formal situation.
Required, but never shown
