    I have already started planning and paying for our upcoming 50th (my birthday AND WDW) and wonder are there any special deals we need to know about that could change our trip cost?

    Hi Teresa,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! What better way to celebrate than at the Walt Disney World Resort? I am delighted to hEAR that you have already started planning, especially given the dates of your visit. As you have indicated, you are arriving just after the launch of The World's Most Magical Celebration

    There are always Special Offers available at different dates throughout the year. Keep checking to see if any are released that would be applicable to the dates of your visit. In the past, I have also gone ahead and made our vacation package reservation. If a special offer was later released, I called to speak with a Cast Member to see if I could get the better deal. 

    Since it sounds like you already have a vacation package booked, I hope you linked that package in My Disney Experience and made Disney Park Pass system reservations. Once it gets closer to the dates of your trip, be sure to make advanced dining reservations, especially for your birthday! We have celebrated my husband's birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort a few times. Our favorite restaurant for his birthday celebration is California Grill. The views of Magic Kingdom from the restaurant are spectacular! 

    In the meantime, I hope you have a way of organizing your planning. I always use a chart or spreadsheet to plan each day. Those plans include the park(s) we plan to visit, our dining locations with confirmation numbers and times, as well as flight information. I also hope you are making plans to experience the EPCOT® International Food & Wine Festival

    Teresa, stay focused. Clearly, you are the lead planner of the group! And, perhaps you can drop some hints to let them know what you might like from Disney Floral & Gifts. Remember to pick up a celebratory button and make a note that you are celebrating on your dining reservations. Happiest of birthdays to you!

    Magic and memories,
    Donyell
