    Hi Regina! Welcome to planDisney!

    Your trip is going to be one big celebration! It's a birthday palooza! I can't think of anywhere I would rather spend a birthday (or any celebration!) than at the Most Magical Place on Earth. This will be a trip to remember!

    First, I want to make sure that you already have your Walt Disney World theme park tickets AND Disney Park Pass reservations in place for everyone in your party. Currently, both are required to enter the theme parks. If you have those ready to go, you should next look into any dining reservations that you want to enjoy. With your trip being so close, there may not be a lot of availability, but sometimes there are last-minute cancellations that open up availability for you! If you have a dining reservation, you can also look into a Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake that can be delivered to your restaurant. I think with three birthday celebrations, you deserve to treat yourself in a BIG way!

    When you arrive, ask for some celebration buttons - one for your first visit and another for your birthday! These are complimentary and when you wear the birthday pins you will often hear a "Happy Birthday!" from a nearby Cast Member or even other Guests.

    Check out the Disney Parks Blog article "Best Bites" for April 2021 to find some extra special treats to try on your visit. Like I said before, now is the time to treat yourself, so if I were you I would just plan to try them all!

    I hope your trip is absolutely AH-MAZ-ING, Regina! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
