    My Aunt and I (she's also my godmother) are taking a trip to celebrate our birthdays. Is there anything special or unique you recommend to surprise her as a gift that's also wallet friendly? I will be turning 22 and she will be turning 45.

    Hi, Caiti!

    So glad that you are back to ask another question of Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    There are countless ways to celebrate a special occasion at Walt Disney World--especially birthdays!

    First, check out this great link to celebrations at Walt Disney World; you'll see lots of options to get your celebratory juices flowing. First on the list--and very wallet-friendly--are Celebration Recognition Buttons. When you check into your WDW resort hotel or at Guest Relations at any park or Disney Springs, simply ask a Cast Member for a complimentary birthday button for each of you. Cast Members and guests will wish you both a happy birthday throughout your trip!

    Disney Floral & Gifts offers some lovely items that you could have delivered to your WDW resort room, too. Balloons, flowers, a cake and much more can surprise your aunt one day when you return to your room after a day of park-hopping fun.

    If you are planning on dining at a WDW Table-Service restaurant, consider ordering a specialty cake to be delivered there (call 407-827-2253 at least 72 business hours in advance) or a 6" cake (no pre-order necessary). You can also ask the host/hostess to make your dessert order special for your birthdays or note that it's your birthdays when dining at the always-celebratory Chef Mickey's.

    Other options include giving yourselves Disney Gift Cards that you can spend on a little something you spot during your stay. It's a magical way to remember your time together!

    Send more questions as you plan your birthday trip, Caiti; we love to help!
