    Hiya, Callum! Welcome to planDisney!

    When it comes to special occasions, I can't think of a better place to celebrate than at Walt Disney World Resort! It's time to bring on the balloons, grab a cupcake with sprinkles, and get ready to celebrate the most magical birthday at The Most Magical Place on Earth. Callum, I'd love to help you add this occasion to your reservation!

    You're exactly right – sometimes, Guests are able to modify their vacation package through their My Disney Experience account to add this celebration to their reservation. If you already clicked Change Reservation and aren't seeing an "Add" button under Celebrations, Hakuna Matata! No worries! I have another idea that's just right for you. I'd recommend that you call a friendly Cast Member and let them know that you'll be celebrating a birthday! They will be happy to make sure that this happy day is noted on your reservation.

    When you arrive, be sure that you ask for a complimentary "I'm Celebrating" button from the front desk of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel! This is a great way to receive well-wishes from Guests and Cast Members, alike. You also might want to take a little time to download and explore the My Disney Experience app before your trip, too! This is a great way to check wait times for attractions, access virtual queues, and mobile order food – a little extra pixie dust on a magical vacation!

    I'm wishing upon a star that your upcoming trip is an extra special one, Callum! If you have any other questions, please visit us again.
